Whew, we’re back!
Due to a denial of service attack on our US-based web host, the Clever Starfish web site was unavailable for 24 hours from Sunday evening. Fortunately, none of our US-hosted client web sites were affected, as they reside on a separate machine at the facility.
Over the past few weeks we have been in the process of moving all of our clients to Fasthit, a local hosting company. Fasthit has excellent pricing, fast servers and great support response times as well as a complete range of accounts (both Windows and Linux), and we’ve been really happy so far with the accounts that have already moved. After this latest issue, we will be speeding up the migration process to get all our clients sites and our own sites over to the new system.
You can’t beat picking up the phone and talking to a system administrator in your own timezone!
