Barry is alright. He replied to my email just now. He's working on fixing the webpages now. May take a while.

Hi guys,
I was overseas, about 6 weeks.
Just after arriving back, Hostgator pulled down my website, said too much traffic.

Yesterday they said it is restored and is within limits, and it was up.

Today it is down again!!!!

This is despite disabling my two old blogs, that were apparently the cause of the trouble.

They haven't even informed me of this latest action. Very annoying, especially considering that I have had essentially the same content on my site for years.

I may be saying goodbye to hostgator.

He's back!

Shame about the continuing appalling moderation on forum. Failed to note duplication of notification. Too busy concentrating on unnecessary wordplay as usual.

You're experiencing a common problem with hosting providers...they are happy to take your money till you slow down their system. If you're on a shared server(most likely), your traffic may affect other users.

If you do stray from Hostagator, be very suspect of the ones that offer "unlimited" bandwidth.

Best of luck.

Just in case someone hasn't noticed:

BarryK's site has changed from bkhome.org to barryk.org.

It seems like the DNS systems may have finally caught up.

Yes, but I still had bkhome.org redirecting to barryk.org.
But yesterday I "disconnected" bkhome.org, it now points to an empty web page.

One problem, I have accumulated so many domain names, and paying for them. Want to get rid of some.

However, will probably keep bkhome.org, have in mind another use for it.

Last year I gave puppylinux.com to 01micko, but I still own puppylinux.org
I sent a pm yesterday to 01micko asking if he wants puppylinux.org.

I only own the domain name puppylinux.org, have nothing to do with the site it points to. I see on that site, 01micko is still active.

OK, thanks for the clarification,

One of my bookmark links to your blog had been marked 403 - dead. I chased this thread looking for a notice, realizing your link had changed and thought it had finally sorted out the dns as you had mentioned some time back you were changing things.

I admit I did something similar last year and got rid of a lot of my old individual ones. I'm down to two public containing everything, that are mirrors, and would like only one but the minute that happens you have pirates buying them up and hastling clients that try to contact you using the old ones. Also everyone seems to expect you to have a .com and a .org nowadays and not just the one.

I have an agreement with the dns provider i've been using for years (as I haven't changed them, just the website providers,) to lock the dead ones as unavailable for a couple of years more and it should be ok by then for them to dissapear, as they are now they just point to a single text-only page advising the new primary site url. Cost was almost nothing as there's no reporting or access to anything, just a notice page with nothing a robot could autolink through.

Anyway, the latest link works so I shall keep using it and forget the other until it's needed.
