Post More down-time
Sorry about the downtime over the past... who knows how long :roll:

Our host have been having problems with the name servers.

One support ticket, Lots of posts to the support forum, and fixing a database error caused by the server going down in the middle of a write to it, we're back online :)


Thank you, and good night.

Yeah, I honestly didn't notice anything. Must have been down while I wasn't home.

I've been monitoring the site uptime every 5 minutes since my original post (Oct 19, 1:55 pm) using a host tracker. It is now Oct 21, 12:45pm and we're at 42.15% uptime.

To put that into perspective, we are supposedly guaranteed 99% uptime. I'm going to let the monitor run for a month or two and see how it goes. If it's not up anywhere close to about 95% (I'm being generous :P ) I shall report my findings to the host to see if we can be moved to a new, hopefully more reliable, server.

I have been noticing recently that I'll be going around the board and suddenly a page doesnt want to load though it says it's trying to open it, and then the rest of the page stops working as well.

I quite often in the evenings have a message box with 'Racerxband.com could not be found' but during the day I generally don't have any problems...

Instead of starting a new topic, I thought I'd just post it in here. After all, it was "more down time".

What sucked up bandwidth and knocked the site down? The videos are on another server, right? I assume we're back up because it's February 1st and the bandwidth reset.

Yeah...sorry, we went over our limit....For whatever reason, last month a lot more stuff was downloaded.


Since it was only 48 hours to a new month....it would have taken me longer to fix it by paying them for more bandwidth.
