Yousendit down for 5+ hours

The website of the digital content delivery (file sharing) service Yousendit was unavailable for 5 hours and 15 minutes yesterday (November 17).

The downtime was divided into four outages happening over a six-hour period that started soon after 7 p.m. CET (1 p.m. US EST). The shortest outage lasted 30 minutes and the longest lasted 2 hours and 25 minutes.

In addition to this there was also a short 15-minute outage later in the morning on Tuesday (it’s visible to the right in the uptime graph above).

Yesterday’s downtime was the most significant problem that the Yousendit website has had so far in 2008 and made its overall uptime this year drop from 99.84% to 99.77%.

According to its website, Yousendit has more than seven and a half million users from 220 countries.

  1. We used to use at my company until there were some unfortunate downtime issues like this one. One of our clients reported that the site is down again today for maintenance (down twice in less than 30 days!). We made the switch to ShareFile ( and are much happier with both the service and the level of uptime.
