Lunarpages web hosting monitoring and charts E-mail

Lunarpages - lp1.hostpeek.com - no longer monitored

On this page you will find the monitoring results and other details regarding a Lunarpages Linux shared hosting account, more specifically, a "Basic Hosting"/"Personal website" package (I've used the coupon TAKE50 at the time, for a $50 price reduction).

I'm using subdomains to host my testing scripts, and when I tried to use the automatic installer, it turned out that it couldn't be used to install applications (wordpress, joomla etc) for the subdomain, but only for the main domain. As such, I had to manually install these applications. No big issue for me, but something that some of you might want to know. I expected cPanel as the control panel, I knew them to be using it, but I was greeted by a 0.1 version of the Alpaca control panel, which looks to be their own, proprietary control panel. It is working fine as far as I could see. I feel it to be a bit simplistic/feature-lacking, but that's probably because it is so new; I'm sure that in time they will add more bells and whistles to it.
