Two big websites, both the Daily Nation and Business daily part of the Nation Media Group’s (NMG) website have remained silent for the fourth day since last week Friday due to is a server issues. The websites which are hosted in the United Kingdom are both registered by MTN Business and are hosted by NTT Europe Limited.
