Problems behind the scenes

We had a massive attack against our site. This was overloading the servers so our host shut down our account.


I’m not real thrilled with our server host right now. I contacted them via web chat first, after waiting about half an hour I got to talk to someone who said they couldn’t help, but an email with info was sent to me. The email said to call. I called, waited 45 minutes on hold to hear that I needed to email them about the issue. Finally heard back via email 8 hours later with vague instructions on what I needed to do. It has been a mess to get things back up and running.

We have added some protection to prevent such an issue in the future. Also, at the moment, we are also using cloudfire for protection.

Right now the Weaponsman mirror at Weaponsman.Looserounds.com appears to be down. I’m not sure why, but I will trying to fix it tonight. If it doesn’t get fixed tonight it will be fixed tomorrow. We are still working to gain access to the Weaponsman.com domain, but I do not know when that will happen. Fixed.

  1. Sorry to hear that. Who is the host? I’m coming up on renewal for mine, and am shopping around for alternatives. Not that I’m unhappy with who I’m using (Siteground), but I’m just curious.

    • We use InMotion. They generally have been good but it was a real PITA to get a hold of them or get help while we had this issue.

  2. Good to see you’re back up. Figured it had to be some bs like that.
    On a related topic is the original weaponsman site done for good? Glad you made the mirror.

    • Sometime, someday, we will get access to the domain name, and when we do weaponsman.com will work just like the old days.
      Fortunately, we had back end access to make the weaponsman mirror, so minus the couple of corrupted images, it is a proper copy.
