The recent outage was caused by a series of crashed services, which included FTP, DNS and E-mail. Unfortunately nobody notified me of these issues and as my e-mail was down I didn't receive any down notifications. I only noticed when my homepage wouldn't load.
Apologies to anyone trying to get to the site or download at the time.
EDIT: I've now put into a place a fail-safe that restarts crashed/stopped services every 10 minutes to reduce the impact of this happening in future.
