Kenya: Nation Media Group Websites Go Quiet Due to Server Hitch

Nation Media Group's (NMG) website for Daily Nation and Business daily have remained silent for the fourth day since Friday in what sources told CIO East Africa is a server problem.

The websites which are hosted in the United Kingdom are both registered by MTN Business and are hosted by NTT Europe Limited.

Going by statistics available online, Business Daily receives around 360,000 views from about 70,000 visitors daily while the Daily Nation has about 2 million views from 410,000 visitors on a daily basis.

Statistics from Alexa.com further show that the Daily Nation website has a global traffic rank of just over 5000 while Business Daily is ranked at 23,030.

However, other online platforms including social media of the two companies have continued as normal.

In a message posted on Twitter yesterday the Daily Nation says it is experiencing a technical hitch on its websites.

"ANNOUNCEMENT: A technical hitch has made it difficult to update some of our websites. We're working to resolve this soon. Apologies -Editor"

Earlier the company had attributed the hitch on a hardware failure.
