I did something on our site that I should have done a long, long, long time ago! I added a site uptime monitoring tool that will allow our clients (and potential clients!) to check up on the progress of our servers! The service is provided by SiteUptime and you can view server stats here.
We currently have 5 of our shared servers we are currently monitoring and good question might be… “How do I know which server my account is on?” – which would be an excellent question! The servers on the Site Uptime monitoring page are listed by name and IP address:
- KIWI – 220.127.116.11
- JINGLES – 18.104.22.168
- BUBBA – 22.214.171.124
- TALIS – 126.96.36.199
- OZ – 188.8.131.52
- It is the string of numbers to the right of the Server Name that you need to worry about. The IP of the server you are on is listed in your account CPanel, in the left menu. Find that IP – compare it to one of the 5 listed above and BINGO! You know which one you are on! Feel free to bookmark our uptime monitoring page so you can visit it and check up on our regular progress of uptime! Those uptime stats are refreshed every 5 minutes!
Small triva that most of you don’t know: The names of our servers: Kiwi, Oz, Bubba, Talis, Jingles – those are all names of our pets. Yes, we’re pet people! We have three birds and three cats – so far!
Kiwi – our conure parrot; she recently died after choking on a seed
Oz – our Military Mackaw
Jingles – our Chattering Lorikeet
Bubba – our adopted kitten from Alabama
Talis – our Abysynnian cat
But there are only 5 servers, you ask?? Yes – we recently adopted a Pionus Parrot named Pinki who doesn’t have a server named after her yet! All in good time, Pinksters!
