Thanks a lot for the info. Hoping that my game will reach about 5% of Scirra's connections per month, there will most-likely be no crashes at all on my end, if they're somehow related to that. Setting up the server shouldn't take longer than a weekend and for the given price, it's great to hear that active support is included. Although I'm currently not really feeling the need to buy and run my own server, Scirra's server is doing the job just fine.

I'm not sure if this has been asked already but would you maybe consider adding a monthly restart to reduce the chances of the server crashing? The most server-hosters offer automated systems/scripts to do that. I think it would be better to have one predictable downtime each month instead of having a crash every few months (not constantly :roll:). The plugin expression onerror could return the message that "it's down for maintenance" as well.
Obviously the community should be asked about this as well (maybe in form of a poll), if you would consider adding this.

It already reboots once a month - it installs Windows Updates every Patch Tuesday.

Probably updates or minor issues, Ashley will sort things out as soon as he can I guess.

Our watchers in the Construct Community are doing a good job with tracking downtimes and they've detected quite a lot today (usually just a few seconds).

We did a bit of maintenance today. Sorry for the trouble, it should be back to normal service now.
