Hey, what's going on with TWO? Tried to log on and I'm getting the HotChillie home page. Did Brian forget to pay the bill???

At a guess the site has been removed from the server completely, possibly it's getting moved to a new machine, that would explain the host holding page. Brian G did say he was talking to the ISP about the server.

I'll start up a thread for Today on here in the mean time. Click the forum topics link to get back to the menu, and you can create new topics as well.

What bad news about TWO, only just got in and it's gone, apparently BG is talking to the server to see what's happening but no news as yet. [sad smiley]

Hi Sharon, hopefully he's switching it over to a new dedicated server that can cope with all your posts smiling smiley

Just spoke to Dotty and she said Andrew Bond has been in touch with BG, the server kicked TWO off for some reason, and it won't be back on till Monday at the earlist according to Andrew Bond. [:-(]

Dotty said it was nothing to do with the bandwidth, TWO has a certain amount and if it goes over they just charge by the GH or something, as far as she knows there was no reason why it was taken off, so it's just awaiting game now to see what happens and what can be done.

Bandwidth isn't usually restricted, just you get charged a metered rate if you go above your quota in your hosting plan. More likely what was happening if the Host company removed the site was that the sheer volume of requests was overwhelming the server, and possibly degrading performance of other sites, that usually the only reason why a site would get suspended by an ISP.

A lot to be said for a dedicated server, but it costs more. This site averages a fraction of page views TWO would get, it's target audience being narrower, weather interests and affects everyone, maybe 10% of the UK population partcipates in Snowsports say, but bandwidth is very high on this site relative to page views because the photos of conditions are an important part of the site.

The joys of being web master, it can get stressful at times, but at other times it can be very rewarding, esp when it's something your really interested in.

So maybe Brian needs to find another server, but the thing is TWO hasn't ever had any real problems until now. Big decisions Brian's got to make now I think, poor Brian.


I'm also having problems with MSN, twice been booted off and now can't even sign in, the whole internet has cracked up. :-(
