New Server
« on: January 29, 2003, 01:16:35 PM »
Due to the high volumes of traffic I was getting on my personal webspace with Telus, I had to move my site to a regular server.

Thanks to DallmannComputers for letting me set up on his webspace.  He is generously sharing some of his 100MB Webspace, and has nervously watched as I have used up 20% of his monthly 6GB bandwidth in just two days. ;D

We're keeping our fingers crossed. . . :-/

this is probably the best deal i have seen for web hosting, for all of you who need something like this

http://nuke.dr2.net/?cifmh=103892


40.00 US a YEAR - 8 gigs/month transfer
15.00 US a YEAR - 4 gigs/month transfer


now thats cheap hosting if you ask me!

The traffic has substantially slowed down.  I only had 900+ hits yesterday.  It was the exposure on http://www.tomshardware.com that was causing the spike.  Not that I'm complaining.  Yes Telus complained at the first of the year when I only had 1700+ hits in one week on my personal webspace.

In the last few days, I've had over 5500 hits, and over 1.2GB of transfer.  If that was just off of my personal webspace, Telus would probably have shut me down.  Being in the country on Dial-up, I can't have that happen.

It's defiantely all working out now though.

I know this is old news but what did you have on your site to cause the high traffic and data transfer?

has your bandwidth remained pretty normal, or do you see spikes certain days or anything?? I know when I used to run my website, it was quite interesting to see the patterns, especailly when I didn't have to pay for bandwidth!!
