Yes, I'm afraid in a way we pay the price for having lots of lots of visitors every day. The server requirements need to be able to cope with heavy traffic, and obviously that does come at the price. Shared hosting is honestly the cheaper option, but you've got more than one person on that particular server so things can get very slow, and as we found out yesterday, if we use up too much of the resource than other websites may slow down so that is why the website gets switched off for a while.

When you hear about popular websites getting hacked, in many cases they are not actually accessed by somebody, they are actually attacked by thousands and thousands of computers at the same time, the hackers gain access to computers all around the world and tell them to visit one particular website all at the same time, of course what happens? The server can't take it and the website crashes.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I blame our new carbon tax.

Glad to hear of the progress Penn.

Hopefully all the traffic helps put some funds in your pocket to help cover some of the costs for the site and your other ventures. :)
