  • How long ago? Could be just a short outage or something.

    I hope so but there seems no access to their support. over 2 hrs without notice.

    maybe a hardware failure? shit happens, give it time? you should not consider as a dead pool unless it has pass at least 48 hours? check their TW

  • @Randy As my server with them also got disconnected at the same time.i would rather take it as a network outage,however,as they colo with QuadraNet,i dont think it will be network outage.

    This is why your company site should be on a different network than your nodes...

  • 2 hours down and it's being called deadpooled? Srsly?

    Deutsche Telekom (DTAG) went to deadpool! I had no DSL Internet at home for the last 2 hours and their hotline is always busy!!11!1!1!11!!!! ;)

    Seriously: Good luck to the OP. Hopefully, it is just an outage!

    Got divided by zero. Three times. Feel better ever since...

  • @Damian said: 2 hours down and it's being called deadpooled? Srsly?

    Now it's 7 hrs down and no response from their support email. I am not going to conclude deadpool but refer to the past post about them,this seems to be true.

  • U wouldn't should Deadpool just yet. Look how long KiloServ was down.

    Kiloserve's site was down for a while but (most) client's VPSs were not.

    2 hrs is nothing. just wait. they might have just gotten some networking issues. not sure if they're hosting the site on the same network as their hosting stuffs.

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    yeah, i think you should wait at least 48 hours to start any accusations

  • I dont think that saying about someone that are in the deadpool is an accusation. After all, it may not be voluntary, it could be a fact of life, however, after what I read around, doesnt look rosy. I mean it didnt look like it will last from the start. It is too early to draw conclusions but, maybe the site and customers are down, however LET/WHT are not. They could have said something. M

    your dedicated was working till yesterday?? read in WHT week back, its in dead pool already...

    I wonder if all their 9 ns points to the same ip. ;-)

    I had an outage for 12 hours back when I was at another DC and the soCal powegrid failed.

    Calm the heck down.

    @NickM: isn't it just a bad idea (and pointless) to have the nameservers BE THE SAME IPs/MACHINES?

    If this guy is trying to make himself look like a "big company" just by having multiple "nameservers", then he's sadly mistaken.

    Looking at this it says they have been suspended by OVH and are moving providers. Sounds like they really do have huge problems. I would consider it dead and move on.

    You and your puny 4 nameservers. Well I have five......thousand.

  • @liam said: I'm pretty sure they were reselling dedis too

    Yep they are reselling servers from ServerSavior i guess. but if you know about ServerSavior,you will find it shitty cause it is run by R.Burns,the owner of CheetahHost(Deadpool).

  • @Maounique said: They could have said something

    Can you tolerate the company say something on WHT instead of responsing to clients' emergency ticket?

    'dead' from 07-30-2012... how much more to go for the 'pool' ?

  • @dearroy said: over 2 hrs without notice.

    That was posted 8/10/2012. I don't see any way to go back two hours from the 10th of August and get to July...

    @DimeCadmium said: get to July..

    check the WHT post linked above - their own sites, solusPanel, client servers never came back 'live' after 07-30-2012, thats why i was surprised how the server of OP was alive till 08/10/2012 (maybe the server was in US datacenter, not in OVH)

  • @Pats said: maybe the server was in US datacenter, not in OVH

    Yep mine was in US(QuadraNet).i didnt realize it until my server got disconnected.

  • So, I think we can close this. Guilty as charged. M

  • Actually they are not hosted with OVH, they are now with HostBluff on our 100% downtime plan. The owner is VERY happy with our service and has since moved all dedicated clients to us.

  • @HostBluff not sure if that's a joke...

  • @eastonch: its no joke, HostBluff guarantee's 100% downtime!

  • @HostBluff Couldn't connect to database server.Couldn't find database jimbob_stats.An unexpected problem has occured with the application. SELECT statscurl_id FROM statscurl WHERE statscurl_ip = '';

    it is on your FAQ page

  • @dearroy said: Couldn't connect to database server.Couldn't find database jimbob_stats.An unexpected problem has occured with the application. SELECT statscurl_id FROM statscurl WHERE statscurl_ip = '';

    Hostbluff database has a record track of 1 working query out of 1 million and downtime is determined on moon phases. What you see is a live demo of the great things you can get at Hostbluff.

    Due to high demand for a nosql service they are also working to a new database product line which will put toghether downtime and wrong sql results: MyNoSql
