    dream-hosting down?

    Does anyone use www.dream-hosting.co.uk to host their website?

    Our site www.prentonhigh.wirral.sch.uk and www.dream-hosting.co.uk are timing out and I wondered if anyone else is having the same problem.

    Well, I don't use dream hosting but I can confirm it's timing out for me aswell - so it's not just a glitch at your end.

    Bugger, I was hoping for the glitch our end.

    Enter panic mode now as it hosts our helpdesk as well.

    Might be worth considering hosting your helpdesk internally; unless this is a freak occurrence of course.

    Sometimes thing are much clearer after a disaster!

    I'd like to host our whole site internally and probably will once I have a spare server

    We host ours externally too, but it would be nice to have it internally for a) better speeds and more stability (more a problem with internet connection than hosting) and b) to be able to use LDAP auth.

    No harm in having it either way with back ups pushed/pulled to another location.

    I too would rather it internally as the vast majority of the time I'd imagine its used onsite.

    Can't comment beyond speculation but it seems a little odd that for their own mail provision they are using Google Apps.
