Early morning server updates, maybe?

Perfectly fine for me. The universe conspiring against you, maybe a bit of recent bad karma earned?? I don't bloody know lol.

Will let ya know if it is for me. I had same problem a few months ago, so much so that I stopped visiting for a few days.

Ever since the new host it seems to refuse to load 1/20 of the pages for me, it just gets stuck midload but a refresh does fix it.

Seeing as this kinda coincides with my ping randomly jumping up to 2000+ ms for hosts that are generally <30ms, I thought it was just a issue of my ISP and not this site in specific.

I pay extra for prioritised traffic and fastpath routing and I've had a fuckfull of webpages not loading correctly.

Try this for those of you not too familiar with internet settings and the like: http://www.speedguide.net/analyzer.php

If ya get red shit use this: http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php

I'd say just click optimal and save, then restart, but I'd read the documentation first.

Many times it's just out of your control though. All it requires is one point between you and the host that is overloaded and it starts lagging or even timing out.

I don't think I've had a network problem on my side (other than 2 routers eventually just breaking) since Win98, where none of us knew what virusses were and where we happily downloaded anything that was offered to us.

My LAN is like fort fucking knox. Obviously now I've said that I'll get hacked tomorrow or something!

Linux is the way to go for security.

We didn't do any maintenance recently. Alpha also works fine for me.

The only problem I know of is that our secondary DNS seems to be down.

Heh, I'll look into the DNS.
EDIT: Fixed. Apparently the DNS wasn't set to auto-start, so it didn't restart after a server reboot (Not this server, another server in the US).

A stupid moment, but what is a secondary DNS?

DNS = domain name system. What it does is basically tell you what IP address a domainname is related to (and also some other shizz like mailservers, and such). So you want to reach dxalpha.com, your computer asks one of the "root" nameservers what nameservers are related to dxalpha.com, which are ns1.xoxoz.com and ns2.xoxoz.com ( http://intodns.com/dxalpha.com ). Your computer will connect to one of the nameservers for the IP address (188.40.62.13) and then your computer can request the webserver at the IP address for the webpage.

We have 2 nameservers: ns1.xoxoz.com and ns2.xoxoz.com. When the first (primary) goes offline - because of maintenance, network being offline, etc - the second (secondary!) fortunately is still available, thus the secondary nameserver can still 'tell' people where our web & mailserver is.

A-ha. Like the DNS i have to manually enter into my router config then, kinda.

Btw what happened to the .co.uk address? I'm sure I used to reach this site that way a year or two ago

Hmm yes.. when loading a page on dxalpha, firefox often switches between the messages "resolving.." and "waiting for.. but no data is incoming.

Why don't you question reasonableness of 65 other domains that I own, and also 6 other domains I own together with Alex :P Only like 10% of them are actual websites.

Your planning world domination of domains? Do you "own" the domains, or just pay yearly for them?

I suppose they are parking domains: buying domains without actually use them with the purpose to use them in future or sell them. i.e. buy the domain www.modernwarfare4.com for 10$, hoping that activision will make the next one shit game, and sell to them for 1000$.

Are you planning to buy some .xxx domains? ;)

Every domain is paid yearly apart the free ones

Personally I own 43 domains, the rest I registered and I manage for my employer. With Alex it's a bit more complicated (there are more than those 6 domains of course, I'm only talking about owning in terms of law here and not agreements which are more important).

I think having a heap of domains is a matter of course when your work and hobby are closely related to the Internet.

Fucking pointless if you ask me.

Although I do see the sense in purchasing potentially sought-after domains in the hope of resale.

Some domains can be worth a lot of money. For example if you resgistered gogle.com (which obviously is registered already, but this is just a example), the traffic on that domain would be enormous, and google would pay millions for the rights of that domain.

A good example(ish) of this, was during the turn of the 21st century, a builder had a building company in the UK, fully patented, and it was called 21st century. For full reach in the UK, 20th century fox bought the rights/domain etc for £6million. Not a bad deal eh?
