If you use 3rd party monitoring scripts/services, please be aware that we block all IPs which make too many connections to our server. If your monitoring service is trying to make a lot of connections every hour, it will be blocked and you will receive reports that site is down (while the site will be running perfectly fine). This security restriction can not be turned off, as it is needed to prevent DDOS and flood attacks.

Brighten someone's day!
