Feel free to PM me so I can help.

In the meantime, you can utilize a service (free) that will send you email or SMS if the website is unreachable so you know immediately:

I use this to track many of my sites and it's free!

mclfy is owned and run by Meadihound. He can be messaged though the Facebook page for He doesn't keep a constant check on the website and relies on notice of any problem by post on Facebook.

I think the problems has a lot more to do with the hosting service and their overloading the bandwidth. A traceroute show is hoisted on and traffic is though 5 of their routers before the server. So rackspace is a large network and/or hosting service. ... And, yes DOS attacks could be a large part of the problem. But I suspect the problem is more of an overloaded network and may be a miss configured router.

We would need remote access to the server to test this. But the result would be a complaint to the hoisting service/network operator.

Thanks for the above link. I can use that with my servers.
