    Why wouldn't you? The best practice is always to keep your clients in the loop. If there are server issues, there is no reason not to let them know.

    It's better to inform the clients about the troubles on the server otherwise they may think you provide bad service.

    But then again, a lot clients ignore those notification and when the server is down for maintenance, they will F you up and down in the ticket...
    But anyway, as long as we inform them before with bring down the server for maintenance, there is nothing much for them to argue about anymore.

    Sharing such information with your clients always creates good impression and builds better relationship between clients and service provider.

    Thanks for your input, dudes.
    It seems to me any decent hosting provider has to inform their customers about possible downtime.

    Absolutely, it's either that or they find out on their own. I'd rather be the one letting them know first and that everything is under control. This is definitely a must.

    I guess it's better to inform your customers about the troubles on the server if you are interested in providing quality hosting services.

    We didn't notify our customers at one point and they got really mad - so we notify them as soon as possible now.

    In any case if the company is respectable, it takes care of their rep.

    Linux

    It does not inspire confidence When a host is not upfront about its difficulties.

    Anyhow it is also all the more reason more hosts ought to have Facebook and Twitter accounts - so that their users will still be kept informed should the worst happen (server down, website down, email down etc)
