Default Lotta Traffic

.....I'm not complaining(maybe I'm gloating) but my website(s) got over 60
'hit's yesterday and I got, maybe, a half dozen nice notes from some folks.
With this much traffic, I begin to sweat exceeding my bandwidth limits with
Mediacom, my ISP, and them shutting me off for a while. For those that just
'lurk' on my site I appreciate your stopping by for a visit.

Larry, if 60 visits a day threatens your bandwidth you either need to
seriously look at the code you're using (have you got a lot of
Javascript stuff happening?) or find another host for the site.

My site gets about 400 requests, an average of 9 meg, a day.

Here's (part of) the report I got today:

I am. I'm using what's provided by Mediacom as "personal web pages" At the
moment , I can't find their use policy to check on use limits but IIRC it's
very low compared to the services provided by commercial ISP's. Presently
I'm using about 40 meg of the 60 meg provided and have very little Java
code.

It either shuts down for a few days or more every month or it doesn't.
I ended up using our domain name and buying a GoDaddy hosting account
so the wife would stop fussing about her site going down. She has fun
with the statistics and reports. You can find places that host web
pages for a few bucks a month which is worth it for some.

Larry,

If you register a domain name ($7 or less everywhere) I can set you up with
hosting that is much more robust for around $4-10 a month depending on what
you would want as far as bandwidth and storage. Billed quarterly or yearly
to a credit card.

You would get info similar to what Dave Balderstone said he gets but much
more comprehensive that the clip he showed...

I don't sell it myself, I simply get it as a reseller four our charity and
pass on the favor to others I run into. If you reall found that the service
was awesome, you could always make a $10,000 donation to the charity.
grin

Let me know (anyone) if I can set you up.

Thanks ,Doug, and all, I did some digging around in the Mediacom rules and I
am allowed 250 meg/month transfer before they shut you off. I figured that
I'd have to average 100's of hits a day, so my fretting was a waste. I am,
however, running out of webspace and have to do frequent culling. I'll
check out the globat.com, it's rates/features look very attractive.

That was indeed just a clip... I get a very detailed report about
traffic.

Looks to me like they provide you with a "cpanel" application. In my
experience, these systems give LOTS of information. Not srue how someone
could need it ALL but it certainly gives most everyone the tidbits of info
they might need...

Oh, other person of great name, hearken hither!

I was searching the web this morning for a certain ASP script
(Ick!) when I stubled across a dirt cheap host, $2.46/mo on an
annual basis. So for under $30, you can leave all your worries
and never have to pay Mediacom any extra for bandwidth.

My most recent client got his own domain at www.namesarecheap.com
for $75/year, and that's USA hosting(AFAIK.)

They host my site and the prices are out of this world.

100mb storage - 3gb a month transfer- 10 emails for only $10 a YEAR

It's been very reliable and I've no complaints at all.

I get reports via email, but have asked for *more* detail. s

My host will give me the raw logs if I want so I can do my own
processing... I may do that just out of pure geekiness.
