Switchover To Faster Server

Switchover To Faster Server Friday 10th April 2015

Apologies to anyone having problems with my website on Friday between 8 and 8.15am my web host was moving the website to a faster server which should improve response times for everyone.

This move did also mean that the email system for sales@hcbooksonline.com was not working for a longer spell whilst the DNS servers around the world synchronised.

Everything appears to be working fine right now but if anyone has a problem please email me at sales@hcbooksonline.com to let me know what the problem is.
