It saddens me greatly to say that ManyRoads has been down for nearly 20 hours.
As I noted in an earlier message, my previous Internet Service Provider was unable to provide me with informative error messages. As a result, I was unable to tune the ManyRoads site to address its performance difficulties. We simply were consuming too many CPU cycles for a shared server.
Because of our difficulties, I have been forced to change host providers. We are now running on Hostgator. I have also implemented :
CloudFlare protects and accelerates any website online. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through our intelligent global network. We automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. We also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.
It is my hope that this combination of changes, along with a distribution of our documentation load onto separate host, will lessen our cpu footprint and improve our overall performance.
If you are inclined to help us fund the technology necessary to support ManyRoads we welcome your active participation. Hopefully, the worst is past. If you notice problems please use our contact page to let us know.
