NOT UNLIMITED. I just received the mail from #Bluehost >>> It has come to our attention that your site is using an excessive number of files stored on your #bluehost account. This is causing performance problems on your website as well as for other customers that are on this server. It can cause our servers to crash and cause additional downtime. Our reseach shows that server performance degrades when accounts have over 50,000 files. In order to ensure optimal performance for your account and the others in your shared hosting environment, we request that you reduce the number of files on your account to under 50,000 by 06/10/2009. you can set up Only 50000 files!!@@

It looks like 2 major hosting companies with data centers in Provo, Utah have lost network connectivity. It’s weird because they are very close to the NSA Data Center and nothing seems to have been done. Is there a massive DDOS attack going down? The Threat maps seem to think so and can barely keep up with the attacks.

    The hosting companies are located in Provo because they were both bought by EIG, who forced them to start using their private datacenter. They're both the same company with different names. No conspiracy.
