one.com down again ! All my domains there. Been over an hour now. I'm really disapppointed - how can one build a following with all these downtimes. Why don't they have backup servers ?

I won't post any links, but on their Twitter they posted a link to a status page that explains what's wrong at the moment.

I saw that - just bs - 'just a few pages' my ***

Nearly 1 million domains, they claim, and it goes down every week. I'm definately looking for a new host now, just sick of it. But all the alternatives in the UK look like equal garbage :(

It's about 4 hours now ! And they claim 99.9% uptime.

Anything (truly) less than 99.99 is really useless. It's the most essential thing for building audience and SEO. They can keep all the gimicks.

Once i got a refund of like 0.2 after complaining, but that's not the point. A website that's not reliably up is worthless.

I never experienced downtime with Yahoo hosting, so it can be done. But I hate Yahoo webhosting because it has antique PHP, MySQL etc, no htaccess, ridiculous pricing, no live help etc.

If only there was a decent host provider. Must we do it ourselves?

I've got similar issues with my DNS host. Their Europe-based name servers have been getting hit hard by DDoS attacks and last week they were down for nearly three days. They don't respond to support requests and ignore their Twitter feed except to post updates that don't really say anything. I finally decided to start switching to a new DNS host and so far have been very happy even though it costs more.

I've found that guarantees like x% uptime are meaningless because it doesn't actually guarantee any uptime, just that you'll get some kind of refund when they're down for too long.

I hope your sites come back up soon.

Unfortunately I think the answer to that is yes. All my sites are on my own dedicated servers and so long as DNS is good to go the sites are up 100% of the time.
