Its not an easy job running a webserver when people out there keep trying to break into your server.
Some interesting data for the two two webservers that I have currently access to:
btmp begins Sun Apr 29 09:20:09 2007
[root@www ~]# lastb|wc -l
btmp begins Sun Aug 26 22:25:22 2007
[root@pragyan anshu]# lastb|wc -l
So both pragyan.org and nitt.edu (and similar other webservers around the world) are constantly under break in attempts.
I ve been dealing with a paid webhost service provider. And the service is so damn poor. Its a senior of mine who s been using it and am taking care of it for the time being. I found my free webhosting (though with ads) to be a lot better than the paid one. lolz
