Doesn't seem to be a problem now.  The server is showing HTTP 200 - OK

I don't get anything when I try that link. Just goes on and on.

Have you checked your web server's error log?

Okay, it took ages to load, but it finally appeared.

Is this thing generated on-the-fly every time someone requests it?

Actually, your main page takes an age to load. Are you running this site off of your home connection? If not, I'd check to see whether your hosting service is having problems at the moment.

No it's static, running it off my local computer but I've been doing a lot of video editing today which was slowing the pc down, should be running fast now....if not let me know...

ah well, not investing in a dedicated host til the site is up and running properly.  Since there was no answer to the question in as much as it must have been a glitch i'll just split the points

Would you need a dedicated host? I'm pretty happy with my shared hosting account. £5 / month gets me Apache (with mod_rewrite), PHP 4, MySQL, and a bunch of other stuff.

If you're trying to get your site popular, that connection drag is probably going to hurt you.

Some good hosts offering windows/asp to look at when the time comes - www.hostway.com, www.verio.com, www.hostony.com.

I'll stick local, know a host who I've used several times inthe past and has always been good, probably a bit more than other hosting companies at Euro 125 but worth it for the local prescence.

Hosting at €125 / month? Woah. That'd have to be some serious traffic allowance.

In the meantime, good luck to you.
