Site downtime

Well, we are on recovery mode. I got a nasty email from my hosting provider saying that they did not have basic DDoS protection, what hosting company in this day and age would not have stuff to protect against that. Who the heck knows why… Bluehost is a huge failure in all ways, shapes and forms. Instead of fixing their server situation they just disable the account and send a email (You have 15 Days to backup everything and get the hell out). This cost me a bunch of money moving providers and re-setting up everything but since I made regular backups I was able to get all of my stuff and fixed mostly everything.

 

I would say avoid bluehost at all costs. They had an older cpanel with not that many features, and basic features they would have disabled because of “security risks” instead of just updating the software. I had been with bluehost for many, many, years and have just been dealing with them because they were pretty cheap. But I rather pay a bit more and be able to be protected from the basic internet skiddies than have to spend a bunch of money for a new host/servers. They refunded me $11.00 which was less than what it costs per month but at this point I don’t care.

 

Will be posting some more research soon.

    1. It was down for awhile due to people attacking it. But the site is now back up with more security (Who thought I would need a vast amount of web filtering security…Its a personal blog) but now it is back up along with all of the other websites that I had before.

      1. Nice to know it (: they fucked up my website Dx I was thinking about making another one and move all of the downloads to the new one, but I think that they’re all lost now, anyway it’s cool that you managed to get your blog back! take care diwi, hope to play with you sometime at BF3
