Dedicated Hosting


Recommended Posts

My members keep getting problems (as well as I) on getting the site to come up rarely. I called the hosting co. and they said perhaps it could have been b/c someone in their area or my area (close to the IP addy) was banned off another site on the server or something. I don't know, that was just one of the possibilities, so I was thinking when or if my site generates revenue, I may need to go towards dedicated. Plus I may want to offer streaming media at some point.


I don't understand what role RAM plays in hosting anyway :/

the only hosting I've tried besides invision power and like their service, but really need to understand why this is happening on a rare occasion. Maybe it's flood control? Doubt it, but wondering about possibilities.

rarely, myself or my members will time out on getting on my site and can't get back on for at least 30mins-2hrs.. don't understand that. Figured it may have something to do with another site on the shared hosting server banning IP addys or something.

WOW I have a vps and its alot cheaper than a dedicated although we crash it sometimes (not often) with playing an online game on it we have success with it running mate, I suggest a VPS before u even consider a dedicated alot cheaper. If you host is that bad i could host for ya till ya find something. :lol:

OH I get it now!

I used to have the same problem with my host then I figured out what it was and switched hosting companies, now it doesn't happen.

Basically your host looks for heavy loads. If it is coming from a specific IP your host will IP ban them from the server for a short time.


I bet when this happens you can't even get onto your ftp can ya?


No idea who your host is but mine was 1and1.com at the time and now I use godaddy and havn't had the problem again in over 2 years.

I would bet that is the reason for this...

They wont fix it lol. thats why I had to switch hosts.

Basically if they feel you have lagged their server to much or made to many requests from the server they will ip ban you for a short time thinking you are trying to hack the site.

Most hosts don't do this because they know that some scripts are a bit high end and could cause a bit of lag trying to load. Well either they don't do this or they have the number set much higher.

My suggestion would be that before you spend a ton of money on a dedicated server that you try out another host for a while and see if it stops.

As I offered before, if you wish to try this I could help you out for a few months for no charge, just to see if this is indeed your problem.

Send me a pm and we can get started. Only takes about an hour to get everything setup, if even that long :lol:

RAM handles a lot of "things" for the server.

The lower the ram , the slower things become or timeout or the server can handle. result high cpu load, slow response.


second option is better then first, and a pentium hyper thread (HT) processor is always beter then normal.
