    Question WHT Down?

    Why was WHT down for almost 17 minutes? Can rackshack not handle dos attacks?

    No.. My life is far from over. It doesn't depend on WHT like most of the other hosts on here because I have a lucrative business..

    I was just curious as to why it was down and why so long? With so many gbits of bandwidth this shouldn't be a problem for rackshack and I'm sure advertisers aren't happy either, especially if this happens day over day.

    Do you know it was a DOS attack (my guess is no). it might have been. It might have been that someone was working on the server, etc. Sheeesh, 17 minutes...

    Alert me when it goes down for a couple hours...

    DD-SNC,

    Last time I checked, WHT provided free membership. I don't see how 17 mins. of downtime would be of any importance.

    It wasn't WHT I was worried about. I could careless. It was why rackshacks network was down. With all that bandwidth and knowledge DDoS shouldn't be an issue for them.

    Well your guess is wrong. I've ran a shell provider for the past four years. DOS attacks are a daily issue but never take down the provider we're hosting with because they have awesome firewalls and know what they're doing. Obviously rackshack doesn't.

    Youre' going to have to troll elsewhere, as we don't tolerate it here. This is your final warning. Get it together or you're gone.
