Argos downtime

The Argos website was down for maintenance for about 12 hours.

Was it necessary to take the website offline for such a long time – even if they picked a low traffic time. A company the size of Argos should have been able to plan a catalogue update with no downtime. Its like the Glastonbury ticket sales always crashing, it can be done with no downtime, but they can’t really be bothered to do it.

Also Happy New Year!
