    I think their host is having problems. A traceroute showed http://www.hugehosting.com/ and they are indeed saying that some dedicated servers are still down.

    As many of you will have probably noticed by now, vBulletin.com and the other official sites have all been offline for several hours now.

    Late last night an anomaly was noticed in several systems on the vBulletin server. The anomaly gradually grew more severe until it was decided to reboot the server.

    Unfortunately, the server failed to reboot successfully. Analysis from staff at the data center has drawn the conclusion that a fatal error has occured in the server, and a full system rebuild will be required.

    This rebuild is currently underway. If it becomes apparent that data has been lost, it will be limited to data from the 24 hours preceeding the failure, as a nightly backup of all important data is made to tape.

    We are now working with the data center staff to bring the various services back online as soon as possible.
    That's the official answer that was posted on vbulletin.nl

    Hardware failure, I guess.
