QMobile Website Goes Offline for Exceeding Bandwidth Limit

A company that spends billions of rupees on TVCs and other marketing activities and yet if its official website goes offline due to insufficient resources is a huge shame.

Due to insufficient bandwidth that QMobile has bought — to save couple of thousand rupees — the hosting company has apparently shut down the traffic coming to its website. Not only this, the hosting company is bluntly displaying “Bandwidth Limit Exceeded” notice to everyone who visits the website of one of the largest phone vendors of Pakistan.

Here is what you are greeted with when you visit qmobile.com.pk:


It would be interesting for you to learn that QMobile’s website is down for this reason for several hours now, in fact at least for 16 hours.

A company of QMobile’s magnitude should have dedicated server for its website. Having a redundant solution could be a plus to make sure that their website is never ever offline.

But for now, buying a hosting plan with double the bandwidth will do.

  • Such a shame, probably they should be given donations now to get a few more GB’s of bandwidth. A company of this caliber should manage their own servers.

  • Jitnay paisay yeh log actors ko day rahay hai is ka 5% bhi agar VPS server par laga day tu yeh nahi hoga. Looking the website is hosted on shared servers that’s why bandwidth exceeds.

    Shameful to Qmobile tech team.

  • Aisa lagta ha jaisay 2$ per month wali shared hosting lee he. 60$ me 100MBPS ke dedicated a jatay hain 6k per month nahi laga saktay ye apni web me per month shame.

    • O wow, Can I have a link to these dead cheap server provider? I need one of these amazing servers right now.

  • Website is similar to how the phones work. Dead after usage of few months! :D BTW, @Amir why are you using Firefox in Windows 8? ;)

  • I think ye kisi b site owner ke lye fakhar ki baat hai, k us ki site itni visit ho rahi hai k BW khatam ho gai :)

      • :P jab kisi cheez ki demand bhar jati hai tu wo market mein short ho jati hai, tab logon ko lagta hai k ye cheez bhot sale ho rahi hai, or BandWidth b aise he hai….. :P
