    Over the past week BHW forum does not always work for me. It says bad DNS settings or alike. It did this morning for me for hours (GMT).

    Is anyone else experiencing issues accessing http://www.blackhatworld.com?

    BHW gets attacked on a regular basis from DDOS and all sorts it wouldnt matter if they upgraded there hosting it would still go down. Also i would think a site this large with the amount of members posting and browsing its already on a dedi.

    I thought this... I wouldn't like to host BHW on my server.

    I was at the University last year and stayed here. Is one of the nicer cities in the UK. Whats he studying? Didn't think they did a black hat course there :cool:

    I'm from germany and BHW was down here too. I never ever heard of chester, so why do I have to suffer too? ;-)
    BTW, making the error page a sales page is just genius!

    There is a certain amount of irony in the fact that all the people lamenting about BHW going down are regular (read non-paying) users...

    Just saying...

    Not lamenting, making the mods aware that this is happening. This part of the forum is for feedback correct?

    Maybe they need more reliable hosting ;)

    If anyone who reads this is in charge of hosting decisions for blackhatworld, drop me a line, I would love the opportunity to help out a forum that is near and dear to my heart
