I want to ask if anyone here knows the credibility of Autowebcheck.com
I put my frihost site on auto check through that site and it shows a lot of downtime in the form of downed internet connection (nearly everyday).
Are they showing false reports to entice users into joining their own web hosting?
^ I get the feeling that website checks by pings (or some method other than HTTP); AutoWebCheck must be doing it by HTTP (which would explain the amount of downtime ACW would be showing).
If they mean the actual internet connection in the datacenter, then for sure it's either their internet connection or fiction. The servers are both located in the Savvis datacenter and the network/internet connection there is rarely, if ever, down - it's one of the best in the world. It's of course possible that the connection from a computer/server to the Savvis network is lost, but that's the fault of the other end of the connection, like because of their crappy network.
It could of course be an actual downtime. It's not because it's GoDaddy, that they have no downtime - to the contrary actually.
By the way, what is the interval it is being checked? Because if it is like every 8 or 10 minutes, it could just be one faulty check causing this.
I don't think that we can name hosts here (it's agin' the rules).
However, if you live in Canada I could reccomend you quite a good host via PM.
I don't live in Canada, but i'd still like bondings to name a few through PM or let others know it too.
