SITE VISIT STATISTICS - FOR PERIOD ENDING 31st December 2009
As you know I have changed my web hosting. I am trying Powweb in the US. Much as I wanted to support British enterprise it was not possible to find a suitable hosting platform that would take on my rather large bandwidth usage.
COUNTERS & STATISTICS:
You'll notice there are no 'counters' on the site. I find them intrusive. For anyone interested here is a simple record of site visitors from my server stats.
Total for DECEMBER 2009 = 668,454;
Running Total: This site has received 34,062,070 visits between 01/2005 and 12/2009.
Averaged visits since opening = 567,701 per month and growing.
Monthly Resource Demand: Dec '09 bandwidth usage was 101.15GB
Total aggregated bandwidth = 3739.65GB (3.74TB) (or averaged = 62.32GB/month).
www.biofos.com Metered Up Time = about 60 months (with present hosting company = 10 month; changed host 22nd January 2009 due to unexpected contract termination by ukstudiohosting.co.uk).
Current Hosting provider - www.powweb.com which is www.powweb.com here.
Total web presence = 7 years (first as www.biofos.cjb.net; second as www.biofos.com).
[The old www.biofos.cjb.net website received about 600 visits per month. It is now closed.]
Thanks to all readers for making biofos one of the most popular Olympus resources on the web.
I was 'forced' to change host again in January 2009. I sincerely hope Powweb can support this sites growing visitor numbers and bandwidth usage. Time will tell.
UPDATE DECEMBER 2009: I've been with Powweb for about 10 months and am very impressed with their service. Of course there have been several outages leading to the website not being available for a few hours here and there, but overall I'm very happy with my new hosts.
Now I'm sure the hosting service can keep up with demand and bandwidth usage I shall be increasing the site content during 2010 to reflect the very real interest in all things Olympus.
