uptime and outage report for our "slow buffalo" of the month

We push our clients hard to sign a website maintenance agreement. But not all do.  This particular client not only hosts their website with us, they have a dedicated server.  And without a maintenance plan, not only does the website not get maintained, neither does the server.  Now, an uptime of “only” 99.8% is not that big a deal, but just like that check engine light: it indicates that something may be about to turn south quickly. And of course, when the telltale signs are there, nobody’s going to sell you cheap insurance.  So learn your lesson: buy a maintenance plan.

BTW, the graph above shows the uptime of our “slow buffalo.”  Click it to enlarge. The three lines represent three different monitoring points: We monitor from several locations, in this case US East, US West and Europe.  Shout-out to Monitis for providing world-class monitoring and alerting.

Business class hosting? Yea, we got that.

    In case you were wondering, the difference between 99.8% uptime means your website is down 2 hours per month. 99.98% uptime works out to 8 minutes.

    You guys provide GREAT maintenance services! Don’t know where we’d be without you! Oh yeah … I guess our site would be down … a lot.

      Glad you’re enjoying it! Over the next month or two, we should burn some maintenance time to make your author photos show up on the google search results next to their posts.
