Houston, We Have a Problem.

I host my sites on with Pair, and I've been extremely happy with their service. I don't think I've had a single second of down time that was due to them (due to my computers… months, but never them). They also provide me with statistics, which I looked at last night for the first time in a while. I have a 400MB per month quota on my disk usage and I'm already at 430MB, and it looks like I'm over my 500MB quote for bandwidth, too.


I have a theory, I think that one of the reasons for the high load is the large amount of blogs that use feeds directly from the site. If we use a feed aggregator, like then that load should go down signifcantly, so instead of everyone hitting your site, they hit another site, and that site hits your site once an hour.
