Last month I experienced a disaster. The company hosting my VPS for 5 years disappeared. I had actually been expecting it. Their normally outstanding support went dead even though the server was still alive.
So I had ordered a new VPS from a top-rated hosting company. I had a few glitches transferring things over but nothing extreme.
One issue was Nameservers.
The old company had given me 4 nameservers to add to my domains at my domain registry company. The new company created 2 nameservers for me to add.
Same domain registrar.
Problem: 75% drop in income in 1 month (I've been with Adsense since the beginning)
Something is very wrong, and because I really don't understand DNS, nameservers, etc, I don't know where the problem lies.
I recently ran reports on 'dnsever' and they say my nameserves are okay. That makes me think that the problem is with the host.
I have about 20 lightweight sites on a managed CPanel VPS with 1 gig ram, and supposedly way too much bandwidth. (my old VPS used Webmin).
Server load 0.17 (16 CPUs)
Memory Used 19.2% (201,360 of 1,048,576)
Swap Used 0% (0 of 1)
Any opinions or tests I should run?
I need help!
