Fix It...

Recommended Posts

Can you please get rid of whatever crappy host you are with, Move the website out the basement and/or Cloud-flare and get a decent web server perhaps?  Every time I click a link, I get the Infamous "I've been DDoS'D" message..

 

 

 

I'll even say please........

 

 

 

Pls?

It's been like this for days now, I suspect someone isn't feeding the hamsters that power the hosting server :lol:

 

A whois lookup shows the website is in Singapore :o wtf is that all about ? no wonder it takes forever, Asia has shite connectivity

Yet the cloudflare error shows Canada, something is wrong somewhere

Seems the host may have updated something on the backend and it got borked.    It's not saving things like last read posts per user.  I've been away all day at work and I've been on the site on my phone reading threads and now I come home and the same threads I read and responded to are now showing as new on my PC.

I suspect your information about Asia and especially Singapores internet connectivity may be outdated.

 

Out of the top 10 median download speed rankings (Internet Society Global Internet Report 2014), Asian countries occupied 5 spots with Hong Kong (1st), Singapore (2nd) and S.Korea (3rd).  In contrast, the UK is 22nd and the US is 30th.  Singapore has a large amount of connectivity both with ASIA and the EU / US (Global Submarine cable links).   GoDaddy has one of its 9 global datacenters in Singapore.  Google also has its Asia datacenter here.

 

One of the things I will miss the most when we return to the UK is cheap fast internet.  I pay 25 quid a month for 1Gbit (local) and reguarly hit 5MB/s -> 10 MB/s (not mb/s) with EU / US news servers. 

 

Back on track...

 

The EpochMod forums site performance has been very poor for me also.  Today the search was disabled.  This week I have been getting the CloudFlare page or half loaded pages.  Is A3 Epoch so popular that they are hitting their bandwidth cap or are people just trying to DDOS them in to oblivion and CloudFlare is not able to cope with it.

This. My friends from Asia come to Canada and think we're in the freaking stone age here.
