    Hello -

    I host a VERY successfull site on www.dotnetpark.com - all of the sudden, this morning, their site went down, and my site which is hosted with them went down.

    It has been more than 2 hours. I found a phone # for them which is disconnected or no longer in service (though it could be an old number, as I found it on some old hosting directory website).

    I have looked at some of the cached pages for their site, but they don't list a phone number.

    So I have emailed and am waiting for a response. I am probably over reacting. Am I over reacting here? Has anybody heard anything about them?

    This really sucks, just not knowing whether they are down for good, or are having technical problems, or what...

    Going nuts here,

    Dan

    They have their domain info hidden with domainsbyproxy.com
    - Not a good sign...

    Almost nothing on UseNet about them either...

    With archive.org, i noticed that their (C) on the bottom of the home page is with 'dotnetpark' and '1host.info' - likely the same people.

    http://www.1host.info/ is a junk site but here is the whois record for them. I would give Ihar a call and ask him what happend to dotnetpark and your money!

    Lastly, the google cache of the contact page of dotnetpark.com here:
    http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache...act.html&hl=en

    clearly shows that the address matches the WHOIS of the 1host.info domain so it IS THE SAME PERSON.

    did you come back online....???

    your host's website is back...

    some times... websites go down... because they are not being monitored... and it can take a while to get things resolved...

    this is a common problem with cheap hosting...

    hosting companies that specialize in discounted/cheap hosting usually can not afford to pay a tech to be on duty 24/7 so, servers go down and stay down till someone notices.. usually when the owner comes to work...

    Hello -

    I need to start researching web hosts better before I get them. What a crock! They respond well to my emails, and have brought the site back online. They said they are investigating. Up/down Up/down all day long.

    I have been with them since last October, and now am wondering how often this has happened, and how much my sales have been effected.

    So they do look shady eh? Any other tips to evaluating a host before you buy? So far it is to check the domain info, if it's not there that's 1 red flag. And if they specify that it is "cheap" hosting, that is another red flag.

    Do you think I should switch hosts? Where can I get a list of GOOD hosts that have ASP.NET?

    Additionally, I have been checking out services that will automatically check that my site is up every hour or so. This looks like a good one : www.websitepulse.com - it is worth it to do this? Looks like I can check the "pulse" of all 6 of my sites for about $6 - $12 a month.

    Anyone else do this?

    What should I do?

    holy moley, if you're a reseller you should have a 247 bat phone tied in to their tech dept.

    Look also at Dotcom-Monitor website monitoring They have a free hourly monitoring, that is a scaled down version of their executive class (pricey) service.
