So much for chronic hosting

Chronic, an Administrator at the GMC hosts his site with http://www.primehosting.co.uk/, your average not to cheap hosting provider. Now you'd think if you payed that much, you'd get premium services like 99% uptime. Apparently thats not the case, the server has been down for quite a long time now, as in a full day atleast and all without a word. Although Prime Hosting's site is semi-operational, it is incredibly slow, almost as if someone decided to host a temporary server for it on their home computer using a standard DSL "lite" connection.

In case you don't know there are quite a few things on this host, specifically GMOT (A very popular Game Maker Off Topic Forum, chronic's site and a few other sites like EO Community. So when do you guestimate everything coming back online. Chronic doesn't seem overly concerned so I think we can expect it back soon.

  1. Not cheap? It’s less than $5 USD/month. Gimme a break, a bloody server got cracked into..it’s funny that you know all this information about PrimeHosting, yet have no idea that the servers are located in a datacentre..

  2. Since when did I say they wern’t located in a data centre. I certainly hope they would be. I said they were slow that day it was as IF someone was hosting it from home.

    Edit: And I certainly didn’t see any 5 dollar plans on their site…
