    www.dirtcheapwebservers.com down??

    I have a dedicated server setup with them. But have been looking for the past 10 minutes, and the ips that i have been allotted have been down. Even their site seems to be down. I tried pinging both of them, but keeping on getting timed out message.

    Is it only from my end or is it truely dead? Any other way to contact them?

    Down from Switzerland too. I didn't bother to call them, I think they know about and they are doing their best. Robb is very responsive and I think something went wrong with their DC.

    Just a quick update

    I went through the whois info of dirtcheapwebservers.com and found that they are with INNERQUEST Networks LLC. Then when you go to their website at http://www.innerquestusa.com it shows that all of their network is down. The reason that they have put up says
    We are currently experiencing network outages due do a fiber cut in the "Tampa Bay Area". We apologize for the unconvinced.
    Hopefully it gets solved out quickly.

    Yes, I hope too... but they could elaborate a bit. We have 20 hours downtime with the servers we have with them but no single email.

    I hope it would be solved soon, This again gave me a lesson, never trust a small company for business.... Not acceptable.

    I wonder if they are still in business. We have 3 servers with them but only one that host a customer. We provided a high end server to this customer.

    Whocares, don't hesistate to contact me if I can help you.

    Network Outage?

    Hi all,

    My host [ dirtcheapwebservers ] has been down for over 44 hours now. ( every site I know that is hosted on them is down including their own site )

    I'm not entirely sure where the datacenter is located but if anyone happens to know could you please post it. It would be nice to know whether the datacenter is having problems or whether my "host" has gone out of business.

    Maybe I'm overreacting but 44 hours seems like quite a long time for all their sites to be down.

    Do a spotcheck from alertra is showing them as up. I noticed their IP is in the 72.x.x.x range, you may want to contact your ISP as there have been a lot of trouble with this IP range lately.

    Their site is now up as a generated ad site (possibly from registrar)

    http://www.dirtcheapwebservers.com/ @ 63.251.83.53

    Hope they didn't go out of business...

  21. #21
    Down for me too -- been a while now...

    Also their site is back up as generated ad site (registrar?)

    http://www.dirtcheapwebservers.com/

    It looks like they have gone, 'Why am I seeing this web site' is displayed

    We rented a VPS for our customer. I have no choice than to consider them out of business. 30 hours downtime without any kind of email or announcement, is too much.

    May be we need to start a thread in a most read part of this forum. The question is no longer about provider outage, my question is: www.dirtcheapwebservers.com dies?

    Yes, just file a chargeback, I really do not understand people that they assume that they can easily rip people, but one thing should be known that every time credit card companies always are with card holders. I promise myself not going with small hosting company. ohzzzz

    The outage is not the problem. But why they don't communicate? An preformated email or a small message on this forum are enought. I know they read this forum.

    Yes, but they did not send any notification, so i am not able to tell my customer what is going on. But it is very bad, we are alone...

    You are not over reacting. I think they are out of business. Their website is down and we have no news from them.

    I wrote several emails those last hours, but they choose to not reply. This is a very bad attitude, they are killing their company.

    I have three servers with them, hopefully all my other boxes are with NAC and other great DCs, this not a big deal for me 3 serveurs out, but what I can't understand is the silence. They simply ignored the fact that they have many customers that trust them and small hosting companies that could die from such accident.

    I don't think they are "ignoring" us. It seems as if they have no way of contacting us.

    Don't bother emailing them as it their mail servers should be down (as is their site)

    They can open an account with GMAIL for exemple and write a polite email to all their customers to explain de situation. But they choosed to ignore us.

    They can aslo post on this forum. They know this forum when it comes to display ads!

    Weedbass

    When I go to http://www.dirtcheapwebservers.com/ I get Welcome to Weedbass.com lol.

  36. #36
    Weedbass here too...

    Ok lol this is getting a little weird now.

  37. #37
    Hello,
    LMAO! Hacker maybe? This is too weird!



    Best Regards,

    Well, the fact that it's pointing to a residential IP suggests that.

    dirtcheapwebservers.com == 24.167.212.231
    24.167.212.231 == Road Runner

    [ http://www.dshield.org/ipinfo.php?ip=24.167.212.231 ]

    But weedbass.com is owned/registered by innerquestusa.com.

    Maybe the datacenter is back up but the dns server's are screwy.

    I agree with that. Infact the mail that i had sent them as soon as their network outage occured today returned saying that the email couldnt be delivered. So i guess even their email servers are down.

    Infact if you see the profile of "dirtcheap" he last visited these forums on the 20th of May 2005. Maybe he too has gone on a holiday to make things worse

    Well either ways, still counting to be now 34 hours of outage
