Site Down for Over 17 hours, Westnic, Hetzner Dedicated Server Hosting


xneelo shared hosting

The Marketoracle.co.uk website has now been down for over 17 hours, Completely inaccessible from anywhere in the world, through any web browser. Not even I have been able to log into the server, not via the domain name or the IP address. Pings go nowhere, trace routes vanish when they hit HETZNER.com in Germany.

So whilst our site is hosted with Westnic.net a US company, the actual server is in or near Nuremberg in Germany. And no we don’t have one of those cheap shared hosting plans, not a semi-dedicated server either, not even one of those run of the mill $200 dollar per month dedicated hosting accounts. No we pay many hundreds of dollars per month for a top of the range dedicated sever with more than enough capacity to deal with any occasional traffic spikes, which normally enables us to forget about the sever and focus on that which counts, posting quality content every single day of the year.

But now the server parked somewhere in the middle of Germany is down, inaccessible, and it’s not a sever load issue, for our top spec sever can easily take more than ten times its normal daily load , and so there would be plenty of warning of any server load issues. Instead its as though the plug was pulled at around 9.45am Monday UK time , since which time not even a single email has transited via the server.

And as you’ll can see I have tried all of the various steps in trying to diagnose the outage and get the site back online.

  1. hetzner have falsely been advertising that their root servers have DDoS protection
    When you get a DDoS attack, they null route your server, despite stating your server is protected.
    This compnay is the Lidl of data centers , excpet lidl actually provide the product the advertise, despite how crap it is, hetzner meanwhile……….
    any company that uses hetzner need to steer clear – they are just bad from start to finish, plus they are the only host that ever ask to see what you look like ( or possibly the colour of your skin) when deciding to rent you a server.
    One might say some very old german tradtions are alive and well at Hetzner.
