Downtime Update

Postby Joe » Sat Aug 02, 2003 12:32 am

It has come to be known that our server has been down a good bit lately. Today we found out that it is becuase our host is upgrading their servers and we're having a little bit of trouble. They should be all fixed, running smooth and fast soon.

Let us hope so I can stop chastizing you for choosing this place. It's not hard at all to find discount hosts, not hard at all. I've never been with a non-discount host afore.

We are willing to put up with the downtime if it means the server is going to be upgraded and the web host will remain stable. If after the upgrade the server is still sluggish and crashing, then we will consider a new host. But for now, we are willing to wait this out. At least they are upgrading and trying to improve the services they offer. We should all be willing to give them a chance to prove themselves as a good, low cost host. Zmoz.com did get many great reviews, and it's one reason why we decided to go with them.

I'm not chastizing as I said, as I think it's a good idea to wait and see, but where are these reviews? I've been to many cheap web hosting review sites, and while Globat and Hostsave (the ones I've personally rented from) were on all of these lists, Zmoz wasn't on any... as a matter of fact, when I type zmoz.com into yahoo I only get like, 4 hits.

Still, I'm just stating this in defense of my earlier claims. Finding cheap hosting isn't that hard, as some have claimed. Nevertheless, I'm glad these people are upgrading their servers, and I look forward to seeign teenbabynet.org up so I can bother people some more :)

*hugs everyone*

System Fix / Inexperienced Host

Postby diaperme » Wed Aug 13, 2003 2:06 am

Summary: zmoz may host decently, but they don't know how to run a server properly as if they did they would never be out this long for a simple upgrade.

REPORT: The server is fairly good, with dns issues that could easily be resolved

VALID DNS FIX: Change your whois to DIRECTLY reference ns7.1t3.com and ns8.1t3.com

Sub note: In all experience?s you never have to remove the links you your ns's unless they also change which is RARE and has not happened

THE TECHNICAL LOGS FOLLOW:

All of this is valid to:

http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc1714.txt # the rwhois system
http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc2929.txt # DNS SYSTEM Best Good Practice

NOTE: they have teenbabnet.org in the cache, because I asked them not 2 long before they failed, so, if u know any thing about DNS that says ns1.zmoz.com and ns2 also have NO ip addresses, very bad, as u can see bye the following whois, w/o those UR SCREWED::

NOTE: Up you can see it does have a CACHE of the authorative name server (ns8.1t3.com which was contacted for a reply)

Now with that being said, ns8.1t3.com and ns7.1t3.com provide ur actual name service, (ns1.zmoz suppose 2 link to them) now if those don't have the proper DNS names, and a server doesn't have an ip

Well, then let me interpert it for everyone that doesn't understand it. It means that the DNS servers that Zmoz is using for your site are not functioning properly and you need to at least be put on different Zmoz DNS servers.

Don't call information worthless just because you don't understand it.

Hatoncat and Diaperme:

The reason why Ali said it's worthless might be because we are already aware of the DNS issues and we know that Zmoz is working to resolve the problem. How many more times must this be said? You, Ashen, HuggieMonster, and Diapeme are all blowing this way out of proportion and getting upset over nothing. I'm not going to sit here and explain this all yet again. I'm going to say this ONE more time -- CHILL OUT and let these problems work themselves out (which they will!). We do not need to see all these "technical reports." We are aware of the issues and they ARE being dealt with.

End of Discussion, Case Closed.

I still don't think they know what there doing:

Postby diaperme » Wed Aug 13, 2003 2:55 pm

There DNS servers are OBVIOUSLY third party systems, these systems are ONLINE, there is most probably (because its a third party system) a web control panel, where they hit a button and do "ADD NS1.ZMOZ.COM REDIRECT TO NS7.1t3.com" now this is a simple issue that should never happen, and to fix takes only a couple hours to propagate the fix, most proper DNS servers will notice in minutes, CACHEING servers will notice within 24 hours. This is not a serious error and should not be occurring many times a week.

We are aware of the issues and they ARE being dealt with.
Seems not

It is still worthless.
When it can be fixed it is never worthless to point out the fix

blowing this way out of proportion and getting upset over nothing.
*shrugs* maby so, but I always belive, why let some one else fix it for you, when you can fix it your self for less.
