What's The Longest Your Sites Have Been Down?

by 5 comments
Not counting natural disasters, where obviously things are out of the hosting
company's control, what's the longest any of your sites have been down for
what they call "regular maintenance?"

    I've only ever found my sites to be down for a few minutes (Hostgator) - they seem to have pretty good uptime.

    I run my own dedicated servers with Softlayer so never.

      Andy, you never have to do maintenance at all? I mean hardware doesn't last
      forever. Eventually you have to replace things, no?

    24 hours for me. I think one site may have been down for 36 hours, but that was years ago. A good relationship with your server tech and provider is always a good thing =)

    I used to use Cedant Hosting a few years ago and they had downtime all the time. I think the longest was 18 hours or so.

    I use HostGator now and have not noticed any downtime. Certainly nothing long enough for me to have any problems.

      I've used a dedicated server with Hetzner in Germany for years now - I've never had downtime that I noticed, but they notified me this weekend that they will need to replace memory units soon, which will mean 2hrs max complete shutdown - however they let me suggest a time when activity is low.

    So I am fairly new to CPA marketing and have developed my first campaign, I get a $1 for every lead and current campaign converting at about 11%. Using Bing ads I am paying around .05c per click and target close to 3000 words. Because I am bidding so low for keywords I only get about 20 clicks per, but I am try to make up with volume and research new low cost keywords. Traffic is driven direct to a landing page and then to the offer. At first I was capturing emails and then directed to the offer but found conversions even lower, also for this campaign I have no real interest is staying in contact with the people who sign up to the offer.

    I'm really good at turning over content quick; what slows me down is research and also bidding on projects. I've read that Textbroker is far superior to iWriter in terms of number of jobs and approval rate (apparently the later is marketed to content buyers in a way that creates really high expectations and high rejection rates as a result). Is there any true competitor to Textbroker in terms of job volume? I've heard Constant Content is also good, a bit less on the volume but much higher paying.
