    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

Hhm.. I suggest you check this out by making a copy of the
page, but without the hitbox link. Then you may be able to
compare the difference in performance between these two versions.

This is not really the _best_ way to do this kind of stuff, but
it might prove that the hitbox link has nothing to do with it.

  I run a few ISPs using Netscape web servers and have customers that have the same link to hitbox.  Unlike your ISP, my web servers serve the page and then it often hangs on loading the image from hitbox....it doesn't hang on loading the page period...I would place my bets on them not allocating enough threads to you from the results I've seen on my servers which seem to be running the same software as they are.
