Well, my host finally responded. They said things look normal. My issues stem from the fact that I’m not on a premium server. I’m due to renew next month; we’ll see what happens and what I do. Thankfully, my renewal price isn’t too high, so that if I renew and decide to move elsewhere, I can do so without too big of a cost to me.

In the meantime, expect loads of 7 seconds or 3 minutes for a bit. Maybe things will improve between now and a month from now.

Hah!

So, the server went down and came back up a couple of times. Turns out there was a user who was abusing the server. Ever since my host dealt with this abuser, things seem to be working better. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but it seems the (more-than-occasional) 3-minutes+ load times for my site are in the past…for now.

Maybe I’ll get back to doing some web authoring and updating my site.

Load times are now, at times, a more bearable 25 or 30 seconds. That’s still a bit on the high side, but I notice it happens when the server load is on the high side…not as high as it was while the abuser was doing his thing, but still higher than normal. Pages will typically load in 5 to 10 seconds, which is MUCH better than what was going on.

Load Times

frustrating

I apologize for the weird load times for my site (and the other Möbius sites). I'm seeing times from 7 seconds to nearly 3 minutes for the same page. Something is going on with my host. I have a support ticket in; I have since the 7th, and there is still no response from them. I don't want to be hasty about any decisions I make, but this is not pleasing me at all. All I can say at the moment is bear with it for now. Maybe you'll see the page you're trying to load in 7 seconds (or less!), or it may take a few minutes.
