I’ve read here about connection timeouts being experienced on some InfinityFree hosted sites. This was brought to my attention by my cousin in Peru. She requested my assistance as her site www.YolandaDuque.com was not reachable. In order to make sure this wasn’t related to her settings or whatever I tried to access it unsuccessfully. I then tried my own site www.MusicInstructor.net and my is down too.
Control panel on my end says my site is “Active”. I don’t know what’s on her control panel.
My site did not seem to have a problem as of a couple of days ago until I went there this morning. Needless to say I told my cousin the server was down and thought this was going to be just a temporary thing a few minutes long that would resolve on its own any time but it’s been all day now and I’ve noticed that the thread where this situations were being reported is closed now and also could not help to notice the dates. While a few sites have gotten restored, over two weeks after the few first cases were reported new instances are taking place i.e. my own site and my cousin’s. I don’t see there being any updates on that thread about the apparent cause but I’m concerned that if two weeks have gone by and yet new instances are taking place then I guess that this isn’t quite preventable and it might happen again with no warning or end in sight.
I would have preferred to email those concerns privately to support as I don’t want to look like I’m disparaging this absolutely great service but I would be grateful to have an update and learn what happened and how preventable it might be. I have business cards printed with the site and my cousin in Peru is also relying on her webpage for her business (she’s just starting and can’t afford paid hosting at the moment). One way or the other this situation worries me and I wonder if it is a mistake on my part to rely on a free service for my business.
