Sonic Kingdom Suffers Downtime

Sonic Kingdom Suffers Downtime

The Sonic Kingdom, host to a number of Sonic fansites including, Sonic United and The Sonic Stadium, suffered a week of downtime, making all sites inaccessible.

The problems started early Wednesday 3rd August when problems with the hard drive brought the server offline. According to Sonic Kingdom’s administrator, the providers delayed installing a replacement hard drive to the extent that he decided to move Sonic Kingdom to a new host. All services are now available since being restored sometime Tuesday 9th.

As a result of the server downtime, all Sonic News feeds were also unavailable. This resulted in problems for all sites using the feeds, which may have ranged from missing news to error messages. Our apologies to anyone who was adversely affected by this. To combat possible problems in the future, Sonic News may implement a feed backup.
