Sorry for the Server
By Ryan Parsons | None
Hey everybody. If you tried to check out CanMag
yesterday, Saturday, you probably came across a 'Bandwidth Exceeded' screen.
For this-- we apologize.
I assure you that we are twice as pissed
More Server Problems
Some time during the middle of the day yesterday
I was called by a friend [thanks Brad] to warn me that he could not access
the site and that I had a 'Bandwidth Exceeded' notice. Now, while success
[and use of bandwidth] is great, that wasn't exactly the case. It turns
out our hosting solution, Powweb, is monitoring the limits of our site by
the hour [rather than by the day]. 'Unfortunately' we had a great 2AM on
Saturday and were punished the rest of the day for it. While the statement
from the server said we passed our 5GB bandwidth limit-- that was a lie.
We did not come remotely close to that limit due to hidden restrictions
placed down by our host Powweb.
And now the server is extremely slow today. So, I am quickly looking into
new servers and trying to work something out with Powweb. Hopefully, I can
get the server issues and hour limits resolved with Powweb so CanMag can
remain a hosted site on the same server. However, I am beginning to have
my doubts on this as well [fingers crossed].
If you do have suggestions for dedicated servers or VPS, please give us
Again, thanks for all the continued support from CanMag readers.
