I haven't noticed the forum being down recently, maybe it goes down at night when America sleeps?

In the past when it does go down it seems to be back in a minute or two, no long outages. If they need to take the forum down for server maintenance they usually send me an email, but I haven't gotten one recently.

This is the forum host...
https://www.bluehost.com/

I don't know where their servers are. Don't Know

Bob - Yeah, I think you told me before this was in BlueHost.

BlueHost is a reseller of Hostgator, and Hostgator has their shared servers in Texas, and their other servers in Provo, Utah and Houston. I think that's it.

I used to have my dedicated server in Hostgator, but over 1 year ago, I moved to Namecheap instead, because Hostgator was crashing my business with frequent network outages.

Also, their support was very good in 2008-2012, but then they started taking DAYS to reply to questions/issues/etc.

If you're using the internet to run a business, you can't afford to be down for days. Your customers will all go away.

I've been very happy with Bluehost, this forum has been up 99% of the time. I've never had to contact them for customer support, so I don't know how fast they respond. Rolling Eyes

Yeah, I still have one shared server with Hostgator, and they are very good with shared servers. Just dedicated servers I wouldn't recommend!

And yes, it's rare when I find my personal website (which is with them) down.

Hmmm, I doubt if this forum will ever require a dedicated server.

The nice thing about a small forum is that all the spammers have gone away. Laughing
