ComputerCraft: Hosted by CreeperHost

If you visit this website a lot, you’ve probably noticed that it has a habit of going offline, sometimes for several days at a time, sometimes several times a month. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that the cause of this downtime is abuse: DDoS attacks organised by immature fans of other Minecraft mods, and people who’ve been banned from the forums. It’s disgusting behaviour, but it’s unfortunately one of the things you have to deal with if you run a website with any significant userbase today.

This post is not to complain, however, but to announce a solution: I’ve moved the site from my previous web host to a new server graciously provided to me by CreeperHost, the Minecraft server hosting company who you may know as the people who provide the bandwidth for the Feed the Beast launcher. With any luck, this server should be more resilient to attacks than the previous host. Time will tell.

At any rate, I owe big thanks to CreeperHost for helping me out with this situation. If you’re in the market for Minecraft server hosting, check them out! And thanks to everyone else for your patience during these troubled times.

  1. While much of our hosting needs are now provided by Curse, that’s nothing against Creeper Host. They are great if you need a Minecraft server, and love to help fellow minecrafters if they can.

  2. Hello Dan000, this comment is all about security. One, WordPress is great blogging website software. It is not secure as you think though. Plugins and Themes can lead to exploits in the system. Even basic WordPress with completely up-to-date software can lead to exploits in the system easily! Second, is the Distributed-Denial of Service(DDoS) attacks. I recommend Cloud Flare because they add great deal of security to your website. They include free SSL and free DDoS protection. You will have to update your nameservers though. Hope all of this information helps! I may only be 12 years old, but I do know a lot about websites! Also, I probably don’t need to tell you this, but make sure to back up your website! WordPress has a weird chance(when updating CORE) of making itself unusable! It happened to my website, it glitched out so much, my website isn’t even good anymore. -TyRulezTK
