Here’s just another uptime update. I hope you enjoyed the uptime speed tests.

Node 3 – OSHS
Uptime last 14 days – 100.00% (Up 0.16%)

Storage will not be upgraded. Available to donors only.

Node 5 – Addora
Uptime last 14 days – 100.00% (Up 0.31%)

cPanel license error resolved.

Node 2 – Felweb
Uptime last 14 days – 100.00% (Up 0.34%)

Uptime tracking now back online.

Node 1 – SmokyHosts
Uptime last 14 days – 98.08% (Down 0.08%)

No current issues.

Node 7 – HighLayer
Uptime last 14 days – 97.73% (Down 2.27%)

No current issues. Not open to new accounts.

Node 6 – Nixism
Uptime last 14 days – 97.33% (Down 1.08%)

No current issues.

It looks like Node 7 and Node 5 have switched places in reliability. Node 7, managed by Highlayer, experienced it’s third ever downtime on September 9th, a painful 72.53% uptime for the day. Meanwhile, it does appear Addora has much improved their quality of service, and now ranks among our top providers.

Nixism, the company behind Node 6 has been going through a management shift recently, which has resulted in inconsistent server management during the transition period, as well as downtime as servers were moved to a new datacenter in Los Angeles. Sameer Antucket, their CEO has said on September 8th:

This is actually Nixism Web Hosting, and we apologize for the delay. We are in an ongoing move of management, but in a few days time, expect a lot of better things here at Nixism!

Uptime for the last 3 days has been a consistent 100.00%. Let’s hope it stays that way!

Please let us know if you need any assistance choosing the best server for your hosting.

I’ll bring your attention to some minor updates all around:

Node 1 – SmokyHosts
We’ve been upraded to have more storage and bandwidth for our original deal we signed with them back when all of IsMyWebsite was hosted on their server. The upgrade happened at the beginning of this month.

Node 2 – Felweb
PHPpgAdmin has been fixed to work on this server. Thanks to

Node 3  – OSHS
OSHS has grown considerably as a company, and is now required to pay VAT. They are shifting this cost to their customers, so our costs are increasing 15%.

Old Node 4 – GalaxyHost
Andrew is back home, so anyone who needs their old backups can get them. Let me or him know who you are.

Node 5 – Addora
The storage error was fixed. It appears backups were being created in the wrong place. We have ensured this company has monitoring in place to prevent any future problems.

Node 6 – Nixism
Nixism is still progressing on fixing Ruby On Rails to work on their server.

Node 7 – HighLayer
We recently majorly improved our deal with them, as mentioned in the last post.

Here’s the latest in reliability for our network. It’s nice to see things really shaping up with Node 5. Excellent work, Addora, for everything you’ve done to bring up your uptime to above an impressive 99.9%.

Felweb finished off with some major downtime yesterday, spoiling an almost unblemished record, and bringing their uptime to record lows since the network ordeal. A decline in reliability continues on Nodes 1 and 3, although this is only a minor change.

Overall, Node 6 still holds the record as the most reliable server on our network. Congratulations to Nixism and thanks for all your help to keep our websites online.

Node 6 – Nixism
Uptime last 14 days – 100.00% (No Change)

No current issues.

Node 7 – HighLayer
Uptime last 14 days – 100.00% (Up 0.55%)

No current issues. Not open to new accounts.

Node 5 – Addora
Uptime last 14 days – 99.92% (Up 1.71%)

No current issues.

Node 3 – OSHS
Uptime last 14 days – 99.84% (Down 0.16%)

Storage will not be upgraded. Closed to new accounts.

Node 1 – SmokyHosts
Uptime last 14 days – 99.38% (Down 0.16%)

Storage upgrade will be complete at end of month.

Node 2 – Felweb
Uptime last 14 days – 94.9% (Down 5.1%)

No current issues. Not open to new accounts.

Coming in the very near future, we will be bringing Node 4 online with a new company Webgator, which is expected to work out a lot better than Galaxy-Hosts. Will keep you posted as we progress here.

I’m planning on starting these, just to give a vague idea of which nodes are most reliable at any given time. This should help a lot for those people who need to have their sites online reliably. Nodes are listed in order from most reliable to least reliable.

Node 6 – Nixism
Uptime last 14 days – 100.00%

No current issues.

Node 7 – HighLayer
Uptime last 8 days – 100.00%

No current issues. Not open to new accounts.

Node 2 – Felweb
Uptime last 14 days – 99.84%

No current issues. Not open to new accounts.

Node 1 – SmokyHosts
Uptime last 14 days – 99.53%

In process of storage upgrade.

Node 3 – OSHS
Uptime last 14 days – 98.76%

In process of storage upgrade. Not open to new accounts.

Node 5 – Addora
Uptime last 14 days – 97.79%

No current issues.

Node 4 – GalaxyHosts
Uptime last 14 days – 40.68%

Use of this node and company has been permanently discontinued. Why?

In the future, I will publish trends and changes in the uptime of servers, which should be helpful to gauge where to locate your website. Keep in mind that servers are judged on multiple aspects, including speed, security, and flexibility, and no server will be the best in all areas.

Work continues on virtually all nodes.

Node 1 – SmokyHosts
Still preparing to send a mass email regarding the transfer, and possible upgrade the ‘Hosting’ section to also display this (as a button to the ‘Old cPanel’). I’m hoping the button and email can be finished tonight, perhaps sent through the virtually unused SmokyHosts server.

Node 2 – IsMyHost.com
We’re giving away hosting for 2 more days on the top node, which you can just reply to get. We have just installed Installatron, so you can do some installing of your favourite scripts. (It’s like Fantastico.) Also upgraded all accounts to the top stage yesterday, since with the recent trouble I thought everyone deserved it.

Node 3 – IsMyWs.com
Not much to say. Still working well.

Node 4 – IsNumberOne.org
We will be switching to another hosting company here for sure. All accounts in queue for creation on this node are being moved to our new Node 9. All accounts already created will be transfered to the new server when we move. Due to the restrictions in place on this node, we cannot enable extra features of any kind, but it is possible to switch to a new node once all the old accounts are successfully created.

Node 5 – IsMyWe.com
Nothing’s changed… Still great, working node.

Node 6 – IsMyWb.com
We are running into the same trouble with PHP URL file access. Except now, Nixism wants me to send it to their technical department. It’s already been a whole month’s worth of hosting down the drain. Should I switch or continue pursuing this?

Node 7 – SuperbHost.us
Starting to feel a strain. I’ve also received word that Mike wants to get a VPS in place of his reseller with the domain ismyhost.net, which will be great. So given those two factors, all remaining accounts are being created on Node 9 for now.

Node 8 – IsMyWebs.com
Remember the company that originally hosted us on a VPS for a short period earlier and was also originally going to host IsMyHost.com. Well, now they’re back to hosting a reseller for us. Everybody welcome Crissic Solutions, run by Skylar.

Node 9 – IsMyWall.com
I’m reusing the domain name of our donation page simply because it’s already registered. I thought it fit the part fairly well, and it might attract more donations if it’s used for something. Anyways, this domain is going to host the remainder of accounts from IsNumberOne.org and SuperbHost.us.

Node 10 – IsMyHs.com
Just registered 7 new domains, this being the first one, with plans to build 7 new domains. I have found a small company to host this one, which is new to reseller hosting but confident in their ability. (The plan is to host a low number of accounts here to start.)

Node 11 – IsMyHt.com
Another domain seeking a server.

Node 12 – IsMySe.com
Node 13 – IsMySi.com
Node 14 – IsMySt.com
Node 15 – IsMyWi.com
Node 16 – IsMyWt.com
All seeking a reseller. I have a number of companies in mind, that I will be utilizing as we need them for future expansion. (Could be you who hosts them if you want to.)

So just a few hundred accounts left to build, and they are actively being created throughout the day.
