KFC Pakistan Website Gets Suspended Again for Exceeding Bandwidth Limits

KFC_thumbThe official website of KFC Pakistan, a fast-food chain with 68 outlets in 19 cities throughout Pakistan, today got suspended after it exceeded its bandwidth limit for the ongoing month.

Users opening KFCPakistan.com are greeted with a system message saying that server can’t show you website because the website owner has exceeded his/her bandwidth limit.

KFC Pakistan

Its a shame that multinational companies like KFC go for a shared hosting plans with such limited resources just to save few bucks. And this is how such greed ends up with a suspended website just for exceeding bandwidth limit.

This is not the first time that KFC website was taken offline by its service provider. Previously, in July 2012 the website was taken down for similar reasons. It appears that fried chicken experts didn’t learn the lesson or probably they don’t care much for their online audience, despite the fact that they spend millions in online advertisements.

Thanks Raja Tahir Qaiser for tipping

    cant they afford unlimited bandwidth package?

    • ElanTechnosys

      No one offers unlimited bandwidth they sell their services under FUP.

    Loosers
    (KFC Pak) go for cloud hosting…. it will be cheaper than dedicated
    server option… You will be charged as per bandwidth used :)

    This way you will save some of your bucks and also will not face that kind of shame again :)

    • KC

      What did they let loose?

      But yes, a multi-billion dollar chain like KFC could go for dedicated or cloud hosting. Losers.

  • They should contact me. I have a solution for every hosting ;)

      Have you tried their food lately? It’s not fit enough for dogs, yet their response to any complaints is a “shrug” at most. Any local option is way better than their items and they’re just selling because of their international name.

      Shitty hosting is the least of their problems.

    ‘One-dish’
    weddings

    While introducing the
    Sindh Marriage Functions (Prohibition of Ostentatious Display and Wasteful Expenses) Bill, 2013 (the sixth
    bill of this year), Farooqi said the assembly had previous passed a resolution
    calling upon the government to take steps to ban wasteful expenses at wedding
    ceremonies and enforce “one-dish meals”.

    The legislation, she said, was
    important as about 15 to 20 percent of
    the population could not
    afford unnecessary expenditures on holding marriage functions for their children
    at all. “The issue has been getting severe with the passage of time owing to the
    widening economic disparity in the society,” she claimed.

    The bill, Farooqi
    claimed, not only called for imposing one-dish meal system at weddings but also
    restricting unnecessary display of wealth and social status through lavish
    arrangements for hospitability,food and beverages for
    guests.

    “Islam also advocates
    solemnising marriages with simplicity,” she said while clarifying
    media reports that the dinner at her own engagement ceremony earlier this year
    did not have 43 dishes on the menu.

    Child marriages

    The Child Marriage
    Prohibition-2013 sparked a debate in the house as the Sindh Minister for Women
    Development claimed that her department had already prepared a similar bill
    after consulting woman parliamentarians, civil society,
    scholars and minorities.

    Rubina Sadaat Qaimkhani believed
    Farooqi should have shared the draft of her bill with the department to include
    the finer points of the private bill in the government bill.

    She added that the bill
    to ban pre-adulthood marriages of girls would be tabled in the assembly after
    approval by the Sindh cabinet.

    Dr Mandhro said the two drafts would
    be clubbed together in a single bill so that legislation on this major societal
    issue could be adopted in its best form.

    Child marriage prevention, Farooqi
    said, was important as it would amend the marriage laws after 84 years in order
    to set 18 years as the minimum age for youngsters, especially girls, to get
    married.

    Must take action against these
    laws.
