A large stack of IPs are down... and have been so for more than an hour.
This includes vpscolo.com itself from here.
Unfortunately, the JVDS forum acknowledged the problem initially, but we have had nothing since.
Has anyone been abale to glean any information at all?

I can't quite believe it either. If I had as many sites as she says, and exhibited such rabid disappointment every time a provider had a problem (large or small), I think I'd be getting myself a server or two somewhere and doing things myself. The servers would pay for themselves many times over in peace of mind alone.
Actually, I can guess what your model is, since it really isn't all that special. Spreading accounts around is not a new concept. Picking up a couple of servers is diverse datacenters through a non-budget provider is not a new concept either. I looked over all your posts to WHT, and it doesn't really seem that your bad luck is just recent. Almost everything you post is a complaint about some host being down and their inability to communicate about it. My observation is that it would just make more sense to more directly manage things. Rather than having a host -> upstream -> upstream as in this very case, you would just have you -> provider (hopefully one that doesn't hide from problems, if you've done your homework correctly). People complain all the time. My interest is what they do to mitigate the potential they have for problems.

I doubt it....
Sorry, I didn't realize you had some sort of monopoly on everything and that your model was so super secret that no one else could possibly have any idea what it involves, no matter how long they're been in the corporate world. Silly me.
As for complaining about outages/non-response, surely that's what this particular forum is for? And by the way, I only ever use it if I can't get hold of the host in question for some reason.
I can't quite seem to find where I said this forum, aptly named as it is, is not for the purpose of reporting outages. Your posting history, however, says that you seem to experience an inordinate number of outages and poor communications from providers. This leads to the natural conclusion (for me it would, anyway) that more direct control, rather than less, would tend to mitigate some of the "unknown" factors that can plague services and lessen the odds to be more favorable to stability and uptime.
If WHT don't want outages to be discussed in the outages forum, I am sure they will tell me.
Why would they do that, I wonder, if they have a forum specifically for this purpose?
