what happened to wincert?

Recommended Posts

I just tried going to Wincert.net and it showed a page saying:
This Account Has Been Suspended

Please contact the billing/support department as soon as possible.

WinCert is moving to a dedicated server, due to the hits it has been getting. So it maybe down for another couple days until the move is done.

Well, to be honest I don't know what to do now. Here is the answer from our current shared hosting support team:

This user without any doubt needs a dedicated server. It is not his

bandwidth or space storage, his forum user connections is what creating the

cpu load.

Dedicated hosting server costs about 150$/month and my current payments don't cover that nor I haven't received any donations except one from JurgenDoe...

I suspect on a hack, since it's not happening all the time.. There were no problems for 3 weeks since we moved to another server, until now.. :realmad:

I'm curious... What have your monthly stats been like? CPU load, number of members, bandwidth usage, etc.?

Have you looked into VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting instead of a dedicated one?

Last I heared from N1K the load was at 33% I believe. Also, I just found out that WinCert was Hacked.

We have some beliefs that we're hacked, but it's not 100% positive yet. IPS Suipport along with a friend of mine are investigating this issue, although the hosting company said that Wincert.net without any doubt should go to dedicated hosting.

@gamehead200

Our stats which I can give you are:

5000-8000 daily visitors

2-3 million page views/month

80-110 GB bandwidth/month

5500+ members..
