    oh right, do you when from?

    i basically redesigned our school website using joomla during November/December only to find that certain features would not work and after contacting LCC IT Support was told that cms systems are not supported and should not be used

    I went after some more info of my own and found this:
    Reverse IP Lookup - Find Other Web Sites Hosted on a Web Server

    From where I discovered EMBC serve 151 school sites (Northants and Notts) through one IP!
    (I imagine this is common with clustered servers/virtualisation and whatnot, but you can bet the EMBC implementation leaves a lot to be desired!)
    Seems we have a dedicated server for our website, thanks EMBC! I'm wondering where all the other Leicestershire sites are hosted as web1.embc.uk.com is Notts.

    Edit: It lies. If you know other domains, and search those, then it changes its mind.

    If anyone is interested this is the closing response to my support call:

    "Due to the amount of users accessing the web server to up date there web
    sites the server over loaded and had to catch up with requests this is why
    access was deined to some users and between 7am and 8 am."

    Grammer and spelling aside, this isn't a good enough answer for us and completely ignored my inquiries into whether measures would be put in place to this happening again.

    If we are not reassured then we will be looking elsewhere for our hosting.

    Ours was down last night around 10pm and the answer I got was 'Is it back up now? Yes? I'll close the call then'.

    Not really what I was looking for!

    Web1 or Web2 sparkeh?
