    Once again
    Hey all...

    Down again. All sites, even Powweb.com.

    Anyone know anything about what's going on this time??? Why are they down again???

    When will they be back up?

    Should I be migrating? Two major outages in 30 days. Ouch.

    Please send me any news at strive4impact at gmail. Thank-you!

    I host at HostGator and my sites have never been down.

    They are real fast loading too.

    Down again. Over 40 sites. Time to migrate? I am thinking yes.

    My emails haven't been working for a few hours. Just went to my powweb hosted websites and they are down.

    This has never happend as far as I know for the 8 or so years they have been hosting my sites.

    I shot them a quick "what is happening" type of email and came straight to this board to find the powweb affiliate page.

    Then I saw others reporting Powweb down.

    Comcast Issue
    It appears that all of Powweb is down, but at this point, the best I can tell is that it's only for Comcast users.

    Comcast appears to be blocking all connections to Powweb.

    For anyone experiencing this issue, you can send a message to Comcast at one (or all) of the following:
    blacklist_comcastnet [at] cable.comcast.com
    abuse [at] att.net
    addrmgt [at] qsun.att.com
    qhoang [at] att.com

    and request that they remove the block.

    Here's the message I sent:

    Hi Comcast Abuse Department

    As of approximately 3PM Mountain March 7, 2008, you have blocked access to a company called Powweb, and ALL sites hosted on their servers.

    www.Powweb.com
    IP address : 65.254.250.20
    ISP : Endurance International Group
    Organization : Endurance International Group
    Location : US, United States
    City : Burlington, MA 01803
    Latitude : 42°50'51" North
    Longitude : 71°20'47" West

    This happened once in August of 2007 as well.

    This block you have placed on their IP block includes the 10,000+ sites hosted there.

    It means that your Comcast customers can not access all of these sites, or, if they are customers of Powweb, it means that they can not access their web site's email via Outlook or SquirrelMail.

    I don’t know what the offending site was that caused this block, but please, look into this matter at your VERY earliest convenience, and clear it up as soon as possible.

    Thank-you,

    I'm not a comcast user and powweb was down for me.

    Near as I can tell, it was down for about 8 hours.

    Not sure the exact details.

    8 hours?!?

    Yet another reason NOT to host all of your sites with one company. If you do change hosting, make sure you don't move all of your sites, lol. Split them up.

    Three days later, I finally get a response to an email asking why my sites and email are down.

    This was my response to him a minute ago.
    ---------------------------------
    Don't lie to me. When my websites and email were down, so was your website. I went into a forum after I emailed you and other people were asking if Powweb was down.

    Now you need to explain to me why you are lying and saying nothing was down.
