I don't know much about this but what about Internode? They seem at least to be Linux friendly with their mirroring of Ibiblio.

I'm sure they host, and they are fast.

Just my 2c.

It's back to simple website for now, at least until the difficult recurring error at the site is solved. It will take some time.

Darreljon is making available a wikibook:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=42755
It must be good to have the translations there, too.

Hostgator has killed off puppylinux.org AGAIN! That is the third time and also without any warning whatsover; just a "beg pardon" AFTER the event!


There was plenty of warning: it's in HostGator's TOS.

Quote:
...the directory in question contains at least one script which was using more than the 25% CPU usage allocated to your account as per our terms of service.


I note the HostGator plan is called "Baby Croc." Now without investigating, I can only deduce that this is a lower tier plan. Sometimes in the interest of saving money we short change ourselves, which I suspect is the case here.

Linode offers both robust hardware and excellent plans. Just don't expect visiting their site to be like a visit to the Family Dollar store.

Just as a matter of interest, puppylinux.org is now back in its more familiar guise, replete with Google ads to help pay its way (I hope).

@AJ - welcome back. TOS notwithstanding, an email to the admin with a chance to debug the problem before bringing the whole site down might have been much better customer relations from Hostgator. We are not your average home web site, and Baby Croc is supposed to be an UNLIMITED hosting package (their description not mine). It costs us (me personally) around $US100 per annum for the hosting.

Actually, a better understanding of the TOS and adherence to it would have prevented the shutdown of the site.

Read the destription and the TOS very carefully.....there are limits imposed...the site exceeded them and that's why it was taken down. It matters not whether it's a home web site, a corporate one or a hobby site....it has limitations.

And you're getting what you pay for.....a web site with limitations. The TOS applies to all of the plans....

Points well-taken. If the revenues will be sufficient, Virtual Private Server is being eyed for puppylinux.org, such as this one by dreamhost.

But.....their restrictions point out that you may be asked to get a private server

What do you mean "Unlimited"?

What we mean is, you don't have to worry about disk storage or network transfer when your site gets popular.

You DO still have to worry about plenty of other things though... if your site isn't well optimized and is causing issues for others on your shared server (either because it's pounding the CPU, hogging RAM, or doing tons of disk I/O), you may be asked to sign up for your own DreamHost Private Server.
