This Web Site – Pain

This site has been going down for the last two to three days each month because of going over bandwidth. So I will be switching hosts. I don’t want to say who the current one is because I love them and have used them for 15 years. 🙁 But they have a bandwidth limit of 50GB while most others are “unlimited” (kind of). Hard to believe this blog is going over, especially since I removed almost all of my other stuff like my old photography blog and web design stuff. I think I will go with HostGator or Bluehost. If anyone feels there are others that are better for the price, let me know.

Since I haven’t put anything up in a while I’ll give you a little Scripture.

Isaiah 32:17
“And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.”
via Joni Eareckson Tada – A Verse for Pain

Matthew 6:33-34
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Don’t you love how it all fits together?

    Jeff – I use hostgator – the are usually very good, though occasionally my site is very slow – though as soon as I question it it goes fast again (it’s about 2-3 times a year at a guess). That may be part of the shared hosting function – but the deals aren’t too bad there.

    50Gb transfer though is pretty huge! I guess I don’t know your hits, but you might want to look and see what the bulk of that is?

    Thanks Drewe. I was thinking before I switch that maybe I should check to see if something weird is going on. I’m not sure how to go about that other than just looking at stats. I can’t imagine somebody is constantly downloading things.

    Do you have a stats tool in your webhosting control panel with whoever you use? Mine I can see the webpages\files that use the most bandwidth, and where it is going etc, all on one page. If you do, and can’t see it, screenshot and send it to me if you want, I m ight be able to see. (this is what I do in for a living ironically…)

  4. 4 Scripture Zealot

    Yeah I just remembered I set one up 3 months ago and found the offender! It’s an old Wiki I had set up a long time ago. It must be trying to get spammed even though people can’t post to it. I’m using Evernote now so removing the Wiki should do it. Thanks for the reminder to look into it. Very pleased about that. My blog isn’t so popular after all.

    No problems 😀

    I was thinking 50Gb is Massive. I run one of the largest sites in Australia for my industry, with 800+ used motorcycles on it and thousands of hits an hour, and we use 100Gb ish….

  6. 6 Scripture Zealot

    I can’t imagine why so many people were accessing a personal Wiki that just has a few categories pertaining to Scripture and theology. It didn’t have much content and I haven’t updated it in years. A few years ago I found that it was getting spammed (I didn’t know any better) and turned off the ability to modify or post anything. I thought 50GB was huge too without music, large photos or videos etc. not to mention relative lack of popularity.
