This afternoon CC was down for a little over 3 hours. My WebHost sets a Bandwidth threshold to prevent a hacked website from running wild. Since last December, this site’s traffic has grown at a very high rate. Linear, but still faster than in past months.
So far in March, CC has 2 1/2 times as much traffic as in December. I guess that is good news. I have no problem with my Host setting limits that are reasonable. I have been hacked before and it is better to catch it early.
In this case it appears it is just growth pure and simple. As soon as I contacted my host they upped the limit.
Thanks to those of you that took the time to send me an email. I normally know when the site is down, but I was away from the house when it went down.
In case you are interested, I do keep a status site where I record known problems. The first entry in the site shows the activity for the last 24 hours.
