Schoolwebsite Doesn't Work in Snow!
Before the summer, we got Schoolwebsite.co.uk to design and host our new websites: www.coombegirlsschool.org, www.coombeboysschool.org, www.coombesixthform.org. The sites look nice and work quite well, but have always been pretty slow, sometimes taking over 60 seconds to load the homepage! The real problem, is that any time there has been snow, or the theat of snow anywhere in the country, the website has just been overloaded, even as I type this, I am getting an error 503 when I try to load it.
What I want to ask, is does anyone else have websites hosted with Schoolwebsite, and are having the same problem? Do schools who have their website hosted with other commercial companies (particularly companies that specialise in school websites such as e4Education or CleverBox) have similar problems? Are there schools on Schoolwebsite who don't have this problem?
We have raised it with our project manager a couple of times and had a bit of a mini rant at BETT, but this morning was the same story. The School Administrator and I are trying to get some data together to show them, so any responses are appreciated.
