  • vb.org and .com in trouble?

    Is there some 'unscheduled maintenance' going on with the .org and .com sites? They are both giving me intermittent database errors, 'site unavailable' warnings, or just being dog slow.

    We do not know. We are investigating.

      It would be nice if they would tweet updates, like HostGator, ThePlantet, etc does during outages or problems.

        If they don't know what the problem is, what is there to Tweet?

          Even ThePlanet could not give me an answer about this. Can't say I'm terribly impressed with their level of support.

            I'm surprised you guys are still on ThePlanet. After the Houston datacenter meltdown a year or so ago, I thought they were pretty much toast. I spent the better part of three months after that moving people off of ThePlanet and just can't justify sending anybody back to them again. The main problem wasn't the meltdown, it was the customer service response to the issue.

            I'm directing all clients to ServerBeach now, and have had nothing but positive results.
            Anybody who says "it can't be done" will usually be interrupted by somebody who is already doing it.

              From the database errors I got, I would say DDOS attack.

                Well they could just say there is a problem and its being investigated, then people would know its not their ISP or something.

                TBH, I simply dont think they have got used to thinking about using twitter for anything yet.

                  This happened for me anyway between 1130 GMT and 1145 GMT, I gave up after that

                  What interested me was that both .org and .com are owned by the same person/company and must be on the same server

                    Correct, both are owned by Jelsoft, and run on the Jelsoft Servers.

                    (and yes, I know Jelsoft is owned by IB )

                        Not experiencing any problems with either site. What server outage?
