While it appears no one was hurt, the fire has caused a 5-6 hour service outage for customers attempting to process credit cards through AuthorizeNet. They are currently waiting for the Fire Department to allow access to the building again.|
While there is no official ETA for AuthorizeNet to restore services, it has been reported that services may be back online as early as 1:00pm EST today.
If your website is currently processing credit cards through AuthorizeNet, please anticipate issues with trying to process orders until services are restored. It is also likely that once service are restored it may take some additional time for services to go back to complete normal operations.
All EPhost systems are operating normally. If you are not using AuthorizeNet to process credit card payments online please disregard this notice.
