My sites are showing 50% since i set up that cool site earlier. Your a lucky man
E-mail's. what a waste of time, Digiweb are still e-mailing me that my main hobby site's has request for a the authorization key code has been received and i have moved my site to blacknight 10 days ago,
I have requested another one of my sites, for moving, but have been ignored so far.
Little update on this, finally got a reply from someone at Digiweb, basically saying that the server hasn't reported downtime and therefore there isn't a problem. I have an average of over 1 hour *every day* downtime since 23rd June. What a shocking uptime record, and the absolute cheek of them to put "Unmatched uptime record" as a selling point on their website. Un F'ing Believable. I have sent them a spreadsheet of all my downtime spells to see what they say. Most likely nothing.
I guess there's nobody I can report them to for providing such a shoddy service, since they say they can't be held responsible for any losses or damages caused by problems with their service... Oh well.
Oh, I'll certainly be moving providers, that's a given. I feel though that I should be entitled to a decent service since I've paid up with them until January, but at this rate I might just bite the bullet and change over before then...
Main site is running 99.77% on Blacknight for a while not. I had a 30 minute of downtime one evening, Apart from that, all ok.
My remaining sites on Digiweb, are currently running at 90%.
I did have to ring them at one stage when the sites where running at 30% up time, and got a call back from a supervisor.
He couldn't explain the 15 minute wait for my call to be answered, as they (his words) where having no problems, and i was 2nd in the que.
Insisted that my stats where lies, as this couldn't be true, and have had no major problems since march this year as reported to him by me.
Had no record of my requests for my codes to move my remaining sites to a new host even though i gave him the ticket support number on the phone.
The man is deluded.
As i also have paid for digiweb to march next year, im going to keep a few sites with them, but have closed up coming accounts ( not to be renewed) and will move the domians soon,
Well, have beenon holidays and moving house recently, but it seems that after a relatively good spell of a few days with only ~5 minutes of downtime each day, some bad things are happening again. All my sites on Digiweb / host.ie have been down all night, roughly 10 hours now. I noticed last night but didn't raise a case because a) raising cases with them is generally a futile exercise, and b) normally, whatever causes the 5 minutes of downtime every morning at 2am often seems to get things working again. Last noght obviously was different though...
Still running at 95% uptime over the past few months. A week or two ago they wrote to me, asking if they could move my account to another server, which would mean a 24 hour freeze on all my sites. I have declined since I am going to be moving them to a different server myself anyway, and a second day of frozen sites would be better off avoided. Hopefully I'll have my main sites transferred this weekend, and will finally be free of all this crap.
There are 416 requests for files coming in there ... this for me is ... INSANE please note this is my own personal opinion and not that of my employer
Every request to a server means we need to open a connection ... you get 10 people trying to view your page at the same time and that's like 4000+ requests coming in.
I was I forget which a few years back either slashdotted or smashing mag'd and I ended up with a ridiculous amount of traffic to my site in the space of 2 hours. I didn't have caching turned on and this was one problem ... my site fell over ... turning on caching helped a bit but moving up to a medius plan helps loads. What you should be looking at doing is checking to see if you can merge images into CSS sprites and using them in this way. At the moment I'm seeing LOTS and LOTS of css files being loaded and lots of images. You should look into the likes of can't remember the exact name but minify plugin for wordpress assuming you're running wordpress will end up serving these as mostly 1 file ( for the CSS at any rate )
