Subject: RE: EAB Platform Performance
We experienced a brief outage with our DNS server which caused the intermittent access to your EAB Platform. The issue has been solved but you may experience some connection issues for 1-3 hours as the DNS settings resolve.
Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
