Spotty Site Availability

Since some time last night, I’ve had a very hard time getting to any of my sites. Not sure what’s going on – I’m going to try to contact my web host (1and1.com) and see what’s going on. The problem I get is a long delay “waiting for tinyscreenfuls.com…”, then a timeout error. I’ve seen the same problem intermittently on my other sites hosted with them.

Has anyone else had problems getting here?

I have to say that in the few years that I’ve been with 1and1, this is only the second time there’s ever been a problem. Pretty good, actually.

  1. They host my site and from my log it looks like today and yesterday were normal days. Of course, they are sure to have more than a few machines, let alone sites, so you can’t draw much of a conclusion.

    A couple months back my service was flaky for a day or two, but by the time I worked up enough frustration to bother complaining it was fixed.

    On the other hand, I know someone with a high-traffic site (hundreds of thousands of hits per month) who had his service throttled and then cut off by them even though he was within package bandwidth limits.
