Slow Website


You might have notice that our website as slowed down.  Here the message we got from our provider to explain the situation:
Connectivity Between Cogent (one of our Bandwidth provider) and Sprint

If you are having issues connecting to your website, or any other website hosted by Dot5Hosting, this alert will provide some information to you.

Yesterday, 30th October, 2008, a press release was put out notifying the industry that Sprint-Nextel had severed its internet connection to Cogent (the provider of bandwidth for Dot5Hosting), resulting in the inability of Sprint-Nextel's customers to connect to any website that gains bandwidth from Cogent.

As our datacenters utilize Cogent to provide bandwidth, unfortunately, our customers are affected.

We've been in contact with our provider, who says they are attempting to work with Sprint to resolve this issue.

Our Network Operations team has begun investigating a way to get around this block, to get our customers back viewing their websites.  However, it is uncertain at this time, if that will be possible.

For more details on what happened, and why, the press release can be found here:

We appreciate your patience while we try to resolve this.  While we would love to assist you, there's little to nothing we can do in this situation, aside from relay the message to our provider that our customers are having issues.  Please remain patient, and we will provide more information when it becomes available.

I hope this will be resloved quickly.
