Bandwidth drastically reduced after starting our own website hosting
Posted on 2007-11-15
We decided recently to start hosting our own Website. Previously we outsourced the website hosting to a 3rd party. I copied the website to our local server and changed the DNS to point to our router and forwarded HTTP requests to our internal server. Once I did this we noticed a drastic reduce in our ability to access the internet. It is horribly slow. We have 10/100 network with a cisco 10/100 switch and a linksys 10/100 firewall router. The access to the internet was so slow I began to recieve warnings from our Exchange Server that there was too many emails sitting in queue. Does anyone have any idea how to speed this up so we can host our own website without crippling our internet access for the rest of the company?
