The Companies Office website is now back up and running.
It was down yesterday, with a notice on the site stating that the website was temporarily unavailable.
Yesterday a spokesperson for the Ministry of Economic Development, which runs the site, said the problem definitey wasn't a denial-of-service attack, but wouldn't specify what it was.
"We are working hard on it and will let people know what's happening," she said.
Speaking to Computerworld today, she said the outage was due to a hardware issue, the exact nature of which is yet to be determined.
The ministry is looking into the outage "as a priority", she says.
