Scheduled Maintenance: New Transaction Checker

The scheduled maintenance for upgrading to the new Chrome-based transaction checker is beginning now. We will post updates to this page as the maintenance progresses. We do not expect any service downtime at this stage.


On Monday, 24th September starting at 06:00 GMT we will be performing maintenance to install a new & improved transaction checker to all our locations. The new checker is based on the latest Chrome version and will be able to accurately check the most cutting-edge dynamic websites, supporting frameworks such as React.js, Angular.js, Vue.js and so forth.

While the maintenance will occur over a 12-hour period, we do not expect any impact to the service apart from short outages at each location as they are updated in turn.

We have spent the last 6 weeks intensively testing the new checker on real-world transactions, however there is always a chance that the odd check will send out a false positive alert due to the differences between the old checker and the new. Our support team will be standing by to assist you with any checks that need to be updated in these cases.
