Any one using PowWeb? - Post ID 394
I am having problems with my site www.beckenhamhistory.co.uk . My host is PoWeb who have said there are problems at their end at the moment. I would like to hear from anyone else who is using PowWeb to let me know how you are getting on so that I can rule out eror on my part.
PowWeb has problems at their end.
I am no whizz kid and someone I know set the site up for me, all I do is add to the Gallery's and do basic editing in Dreamweaver, so quirks and all that stuff go over my head. I have a basic understanding of html and when I say basic, its real basic.
My site works well in Safari but if I use Firefox and IE I get problems (other people get the same faults). If I click on Gallery from the main menu up pops the first gallery, then when I select another gallery from the menu that is now on the right I can go and make a cup of tea before it loads. It is only recently that I have encountered these problems.
I wondered is it POwWeb or is it me?
This is what PowWeb have said about their problems.
Notice from Powweb Servers
Recent Service Issues Over the weekend, PowWeb servers became the target of
a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. DDoS attacks are malicious
attempts to interrupt Internet services by intentionally "flooding" and
overwhelming providers with bogus data. Once the volume of this data exceeds
an architecture's capacity, systems can no longer perform their tasks and
performance issues occur.
While our hosting platform is designed to withstand such attacks, many
customers experienced a service degradation, and in some cases, an
interruption in services altogether. Thank you for your patience while we
worked to minimize the impact of the attack and bring all services back to
normal as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, DDoS attacks are not uncommon, and Internet criminals are
constantly discovering new ways to disrupt services. Please be assured that
we are working with federal authorities to identify those responsible for
the attack and prevent any type of future disruption. If you'd like to learn
more, Google "DDoS attacks" or "DNS storms." As always, if you have
questions or concerns, please contact us .
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
