A Quick Note about iFanboy.com Being Down

We just wanted to apologize for the recent server problems we’ve been having over the past two days. On both days, around 3 PM EST, our hosting provider has had to take iFanboy.com down due to increased load. This problem was actually on our host’s side and not on ours, which makes being down that much more frustrating. We apologize. We’re working on ensuring that this doesn’t happen again and that iFanboy.com will always be here for you whenever you want it so you can get your comics fill.

In the meantime, if you think iFanboy.com is having problems — go to twitter.com/ifanboy for instant updates and the forums at Revision3.com which should be up and people are discussing comics there.

Thanks for your patience and again, we apologize for the outage.



  1. oh, that’s a relief I guess. I was afraid it was me.

    It did get me to finally go to the forums which i’ve put off for-Ev-er. 

  2. I take this to mean that the community (or at least site visits) are on the rise.  That sounds like good news.  That is an indicator of the quality of the material on the site and the quality of the community.

  3. Thanks for the clarification; you guys are way better than the Chinese government. When it comes to information-sharing that is.

    I’m not familiar with your human rights record …

  4. I’m just glad that means my computer isn’t broken. 🙂

  5. skrulls 😮

  6. i was scared that my comp was messing up with the homepage.

    @cromulent yes i completely agree skrulls are taking over iFanboy website!! OH NO!!

  7. @patio – went and saw it for a fourth time on Monday, even funnier on IMAX.


    i’d love to go to the Revision3 forums if only they’d e-mail me my password?!

  8. It really wasn’t that big a deal. I looked up "ifanboy" on Yahoo! and the link took me to the homepage when my bookmark had a blank page. So, all went swimmingly. But thanks for the quick fix guys.

  9. Having been on this end of things professionally, I know how hard it sucks to have to rely on someone else to take care of your stuff. Thanks for keeping us informed and thanks for the quick responses.

  10. Thanks for the update.

  11. "Hosts?" "Servers?" Man, I don’t understand this internet at all.

  12. @Andrew: In…ter….net?

  13. somewhat good news that it wasn’t my connection that was messing up but bad news that the site was down. Thanks for updating the community on it. Hopefully the host will be able to figure it out

  14. "What the fuck is the internet?"

    heh. Jay rules. 

    Too many people visiting the site sounds like a good problem to have. 🙂 

  15. @FACE – No More Dead Servers? That only took me like an hour to figure out. Lol. I’m obviously no Batman! How was it on the imax? (Besides funnier.)

  16. Hey, I’m just glad my favorite comic book site is back up.

  17. I told you you would feel my wrath!

  18. Ron, there’s absolutely no need to apologise, especially when it wasn’t your fault.

    I am slightly relieved, though, as I was sure it was my computer going kaput!

    Doesn’t matter now, the best site on the net (is that what the kids are calling it these days?) is back. 🙂 

  19. @patio – the cityscapes are to die for. feels like you could almost fall right into the screen. other than that, the people are very large   🙂

  20. I hate when mommy and daddy fight!
