As a result, the visitnh.gov site and the other websites hosted at that datacenter were inaccessible for 44 minutes starting at 8:57 a.m.

State officials and others are working to determine more details about what caused the problem, but say there is no evidence that visitnh.gov was specifically targeted.

Maine's government website was also knocked out of service for a while Monday.
