Netscape 1 Server on UNIX - problem?

Dear friends

I have a popular site hosted by an ISP running Netscape 1 on a UNIX platform.

The ISP has very irregular performance, sometimes the pages load fine, other times the pages take forever!

The ISP says the problem is the link on the home page to a US site called Hitbox, which 'audits' our site's traffic.

How can this be?  The slowness comes from connecting to the site, with the window status saying 'waiting for reply.'  Our site is http://www.completelyfreesoftware.com/ 

Can the code on a page linked to HITBOX on a Netscape 1 server on UNIX be the problem?

Or is it the Netscape 1 server?

Please help...

Kind regards

Well, what you are saying is partially true. When a web page is loaded it load first the title, background, the text and later the graphics, java applets etc.

If the hitbox picture does not load that means the the hitbox.com or whatever is it does not functioning well and does not mean that your page is not loaded. Your page is going to be loaded but you are not going to see the hitbox picture or it will come after a few seconds or minutes.

If your web page does not load at all, the problem is at your ISP. As I see your web site is a virtual one. This also does not means that it will have problems. I have a Linux(Unix Flavor) at 120 Mhz Pentium and only 64 Mb of RAM and I run my Apache Server with two websites and it works fine(at 56Kbs Modem). One of them is virtual like yours. Your ISP should have more hardware than me. I think their problem is traffic and their computers can not  handle so much traffic. This is the reason. Netscape Server are Ok as long as you have full support for them like: RAM, Processors, SCSI Drives and T1-3 connections. If you don't or you have less than needed to run the system properly, your websites(virual hosts) will not respond at time or at all.

My suggestion: It is not the HitBox, it is their computers. Find a ISP offering fast servers; there are many out there, call them up, ask about price etc.

Good Luck ...
