RE: site up and down and up and down....
Well, It depends on allot of factors. I'm planning on moving soon. If I move to an area where the National Broadband Network has been rolled out, then I can get cheap upload bandwidth that should be good enough for hosting TTA.

Then it's just the cost of a cheap workstation. I happen to have a spare sitting around.

40 megabit uplink is good enough for the traffic we get at the moment, and fiber optics is pretty reliable. I can make the computer pretty reliable too. It doesn't need to run on server grade hardware. Not for this. 2 workstations with load balancing is the goal. If one fails the other takes over.

Trivial, I would cover it if I get in that position. First things first... Move into an area with the broadband access I need.

Fuck you for being so fucking rich that 2 workstations and a 40 mbit uplink are trivial costs!
Kidding.
What i meant to ask,is your dataplan cost higher than the current host? Is the instalation worth it in long term?

Tapatalk, and it didn't make a difference. I'm going to enable them again soon.

The install is free. If it's been rolled out in the area there will be dark fiber going to the premises.

The plan for 100 down 40 up is roughly $100/month with 500GB of data included. Roughly 10c/GB for extra.

I might have to pay for DOS protection... I'll see when it comes to that.

Not sure, that's between Seth and someone I talk to about issues on the site.

Thing is, to get a decent virtual server is expensive. A cheap workstation would kick its ass. That would eliminate memory issues, etc.. I could configure the db server as I wished.
