So What Happened?

So why the downtime?  Don't see a sticky or anything.

I think it only JUST went back up.

Problems seem to be happening more and more frequently :(

Considering the forum was down too, a sticky wasn't going to be much help.  :D 

I am curious what happened though.

Their phone lines are even down.  Was there an earthquake?

Chat is also offline.

I'd like to know also, Our work sites / e-mail was down, and my personal sites (hosted on a diffrent LP server was also down)

No responce to any pings, even the DNS servers were silent.

And the phone was either bussy or no answer.

Well, their internal network was probably still functioning.  I believe the first thing I would have done was to post a sticky here before all the threads started flooding in.

I read somewhere that their phones run through the internet connect (i.e. Vonage) thus that might have been why.  The network status line was operational but not much help.  "...currently experiencing difficulties... All available technicians..." yadda yadda yadda

Seriously not cool, LP. You guys need to get your act together on this. Today isn't the first time you've left us down and out without any info.

That line about your phones being connected to the internet doesn't cut it. You should have learned last time.

Phones are back up with an automated message saying they're still undergoing network problems.  I'm down, but I'm on a dedicated server so it will probably stay down until I perosnally call and ask them to turn it back on.

yes we are all patiently waiting for a very good excuse here, i have a nasty old dell desktop computer without a case that's been serving up a personal web page plus email for almost 2 years with no downtime, i figure lunarpages should be able to do at least that well.

This is very disconcerting.  I could not even get someone on the phone. I'm researching a new hosting company as we speek. Any suggestions?

I can only remember RAT's site's address and it's not responding... ah there it comes.  Everything seems to be very sluggish.  Responding, but sluggishly.

Let's just wait and see.  Could a large scale DDOS have tied everything up for this long?
