It's not necessarily network problems for all the sites. I can ping the server my domain is hosted on fine (we each get unique IP addresses per domain). Sometimes the server load is just great and operations time out.

My rule is "When in doubt, Tera-byte is down" simply because it's always true. Up for 10 minutes, down for one, up for 10 minutes, down for one. It's gets rather annoying when your trying to upload things.

Seems like this server "Cobalt Linux release 6.0 (Shinkansen-Decaf)" is running out of disk space.

More tera-byte woes...

Right now their support staff is simply annoying the hell out of me! We have to go through simple log zipping session every day.

Here is how it usually happens.

I try to upload a file, my ftp file goes for it but cannot complete the process because my alloted diskspace has been used up. Now I automatically know it's the logs simply because my files are only using around 60 megs of the alloted 150.

(Yes, those log files are huge, 114 megs or larger sometimes... The reason they are so huge is because they have data from more then a month back)

Next I email tera-byte and they basically zip up my log file then delete the old one. Every day the cobalt os produces a new log file based on my hits from more then 1 month and several weeks ago. They say it's a cobalt OS bug... oh well

I just hate repeating that every single day!

If I could find another more reliable webhost that offers cgi, php, mysql, 150 megs of diskspace, and at least 30 gigs transfer per month I'd be okay.

Under $20 bucks if possible...

LoL. I am with Tera-byte too. As of right now I think I'm moving pretty soon. I am on Tera-byte's hosting plan 6, does anyone have any suggestions to where I should head off? I can't seem to find competitive offers.

Ventures online may be viable for you... That depends on how much bandwidth you use though.

Me too! I don't notice my site down much, but the disk usage tracking really makes me nervous. They even suggested I 'ugrade'. but then suddenly the next day my stie was at 11mb!! *sigh*

I just downgraded two of my sites to plan 4 which has 100 MBs. However due to log file woes one of them has a disk quota of 350 megs.

I lost a ton of traffic because some of my former addresses for my main site has been lost. They were owned by another company I used to be hosted by. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/frown.gif So bandwidth isn't an issue anymore.
