Re: Is the website under attack?
I've wondered that myself. .... Lately, the server will answer pings, but be extremely slow to feed out page request or not answer at all. The ping proves the hosting server is up & running.
However, this could be caused by a very overloaded server serving several high volume websites. ....
Or, overload intrenet connection ...
Or, a malfunctioning webserver or machine causing hangs or other problems ...
Or, planed DOS attacks causing the first two listed overloads.
Bananas.org is hosted by Rackspace.net in Texas. Obviously they host several other Domains & websites.
