At an undetermined point of this weekend, our website has ceased to work, due to an apparently serious internal damage. Right now, Sunday night, it's still impossible for me to know the damage degree, or the working time it will take to our technical support team to fix the error cause.


Those eventually willing (or in the need) to get in touch with us, whatever the reason for, can still write to any of our e-mail addresses (info[at]minairons[dot]eu, or lvilalta[at]minairons[dot]eu for instance), because they're fully active and working. We can of course take eventual orders using e-mail, too.

I shall keep you all properly informed through Minairons blog, which is

And last, those among you accustomed to using eBay portal will perhaps greet to know that Minairons does run an eBay store comprising a great deal of our own products, whose URL is

Believe me I'm appalled and so sorry for the eventual inconveniences this unexpected event might cause. I'll do all my best to restore Minairons website as soon as possible.

Minairons Website fully restored.

I'm still awaiting a complete report from the team who've been working on it; anyway, according to a talk with them I held yesterday, only website's 'friendly URL' creation tool was affected (thus masking product pages URLs, as if these latter didn't exist anymore).

They were skeptic whether this odd malfunction had been caused by any eventual hacking (not so I am), but the good news is that database itself is intact.
