How reliable is this server!
« on: January 23, 2007, 11:54:20 pm »
My ISP's DNS server is always crapping up on me, I can't access any website or anything with its domain name. But for some crazy reason, Gaming Steve is an exception. Everything else I need an IP address for if I want to access it. Seriously, is there any reason why www.gamingsteve.com is special?? lol. It would be great to know, I'd make sure all my future websites /domains include whatever it is.

Oh, some good advice: stay away from iPrimus ;)

I find this site goes down sporadically, actually. Nothing unexpected, but still it dies every so often.

Yeah actually this server craps out at least once a month...

<_<

However Steve seems to have fixed it this last time.

It was going down quite a bit, and that is one of the main reasons I haven't been updating the site as often. But with an updated server, a new forum and new blog software (soon I hope) it should be better than ever.

As for working "better" than other sites ... I have no idea!!! ;D

lol, oh well I guess I haven't been around every time the server goes down. It's just that somehow when my DNS server goes down, this site is the only one that works without needing an IP address. Really strange.

I also notice its response time is really great, and I especially notice it when I'm capped :D.

Oh and hey, I'm great with PHP, MySQL, RSS, CSS, etc, and I can write some custom blog software if you need it. I think the current one is pretty good though, what are some of the features do you think it's missing? Who actually wrote it? ???

Good to see you're around  8).

It doesn't load every second or third time for me. It usually works if I refresh, though.

I'm just curious, is this forum hosted on a shared server?

Which reminds me, it's been crapping out a lot to day... actually this whole week has not been our best as far as stability goes.

Is it just my connection or is something wrong?

Pages are taking forever to load, and whenever I vote or make a reply, it thinks I did it twice, likewise when I save or make a new topic, as if the information is being submitted twice.

There's quite a lot of guest traffic right now. That just might be the case. I have no problems right now, but I think the servers are putting you on a low traffic priority or something.
