It is down. I wanted to wait a bit before opening a ticket, but then got so deep into work that I forgot :)

I'll do it now. And probably will move to a dedicated server later. These VPS'es are no good.

It is not a serious issue now, but in the future, when users start to trade more actively (say before the release or after some big news), a better service would be needed indeed. (imagine many traders, bots etc who need it to be up 24/7)

Absolutely. When you compare VPS reliability/speed to dedicated, it's no match. And the prices for dedicated dropped significantly in the last couple of years.

The servers are still under periodic DDoS attacks because of Classic nodes running there, so if something goes down - don't panic, it will usually be automatically back up in 10-40 min.

There are probably about two and a half men watching Sim close enough to notice something is down :) And we don't panic under no circumstances.

That's the spirit!

At least these bastards spend their money for nothing - Worldstream immediately disconnects the server, so I don't pay for all the DDoS traffic, but they do :)

Why would someone ddos an exchange with volume 1 btc/week? I don't see how it could be profitable.

No, they don't ddos our sites. They ddos all Bitcoin Classic nodes.

Since there are 1,600 of them, each gets only a small portion, which lasts like 10 min.

And the only thing they achieved is dramatic rise in node count! (I set up the second one myself after attacks have started).

That's the level of retardedness you'd expect from the Core camp :)

Is SimXchg down now or this is only for me?

Thanks for the report. Yes, the server has stopped for some reason.

I started it again manually.

I think, I'll just move the exchange to one of the dedicated servers.

So it will be down for a few hours.

The exchange has been moved. Please report any problems.

You need to use a different link now: https://simxchg.com:555/

Just noticed, the API page still redirects to the old exchange site

Edit: just the links (eg https://simxchg.com/api/orders.php) need to be updated to include 555 port number

How can I obtain daily closing or daily High&Low prices from the API (or even specify the time-frame e.g. 4 hours/days)?

Currently I can not access the API pages.

Just use ":555" for API links too.

You can't request any meta analysis. This is just raw data, if you need low/high, you need to process it manually.
