Hi, what's happening to the free shell?
There are some issues with the free server, we're looking into it.

I've tried - as usual - to change my password and got no success: https://i.imgur.com/UwLTynY.mp4

The 'waiting' bar is scrolling w/o stopping for a few hours :[

BTW, no old or new passwords are logging me into the shell - I got "Permission denied, please try again" all the time..

Same here.

The domain shell.xshellz.com doesn't respond to ping too

domain is still registered and resolving ok, but - yes, pings are not coming back yet port 22 is not responding: ssh: connect to host shell.xshellz.com port 22: Connection timed out

I think it's down for good. No one is replying to my ticket anymore.. I just wish I could delete my shell, format it or whatever.

In the meantime I moved znc to my paid VPS, so I don't really need this shell anymore..

Its not down for good, but the amount of tickets is increased in the last 48 hours, due to the issues with the free server. We're actively looking into it, but do note that this is a free server which does not have SLA/SLO guarantees.

@StephenS: I just hope that the free server will come back online soon.

Thank you for your efforts and keep your high quality work.

Appreciate your efforts, @StephenS - and the update! Can't thank you enough for the free service.

We have a several issues with the networking interface, your data is preserved and server is stable, but cant connect to the network at the moment. Do not try to login or change passwords. We're still looking into this issue.

I have no inside info or special knowkedge, but from what's been said by the admin, I have a hunch that the server may hsve been hacked. Prior to this outage the shell had an uptime of more than a year, iirc. The admin seems baffled by the problem. He has always maintained the shell perfectly before this.
