the server was down

The entire SillyDog701 server was offline for a few hours earlier. In fact I did not notice it until I received a phone call from the hosting company (The Planet).

After a few conversations, the server was back online!!! And I hope the server stays online. (To Don: Antony does not know much about server configuration, unlike you.)

Short story, it seems like it was a DoS attack on one of the script being used, and that is currently disabled.

My plan for the next weeks: perform some software updates for the server.

I don't know much about server configuration, it's just that in the case of Linux servers there are plenty of guides available, and in the case of Windows servers things are rather self-explanatory.

And for sure, I can't afford running a webserver from the house as I would have absolutely no technical support at all.

And I can't afford not running a webserver from the house as I can't actually pay for hosting elsewhere.

You have the ability of running web server from the house. I don't. In other words, you are better off. Which can be translated to Antony is poor.

Nobody but you would call somebody hosting a server out of their house "better off". You have expensive dedicated server hardware and experienced support personnel at the datacenter for you, not to mention lots and lots of bandwidth. I only get 768kbps up at home, and if something dies while I'm away, it dies while I'm away, nothing I can do about that.
