Impact
During the maintenance window, it will NOT be possible to submit applications or requests to the DRS via the EPP interface or the web interface. In addition, the Whois will be unavailable during the maintenance window. This window is for maintenance to our technical infrastructure. No functional changes will be made.

Background
During this quarterly maintenance window, we will be upgrading the software of the load balancers, firewalls, databases and other systems to the recommended patch levels. We will also be taking the opportunity to replace hardware where necessary. The activities are necessary in order to maintain the required levels of network infrastructure stability and security, and to retain our eligibility for support services from our suppliers. The nature of the maintenance activities is such that it is not possible to carry out the maintenance without service interruption.
