What inrepparttar world can I do? I just opened my newest site yesterday and it will not open today.**

Back to my web host, try again same results, boy I am getting worried. With everyone closing their doors with no prior warning, what if they did that to me?**

Decided maybe it would calm my nerves to write this article. Hope I can write with all this on my mind.**

It is now 8 pm and my sites are finally back up. Wonder how many sales I missed?**

Still wonder if I shouldn't chuck this thing out my window.**

Oh heck with it, tomorrow has to be a better day or I may chuck it outrepparttar 107900 window.**

Can't give up! Can't give up! Can't give up! Just keep telling my self, can't give up.**

On top of that, there is a certain amount of overhead associated with each connection. This is "handshaking", which meansrepparttar modem is askingrepparttar 107899 internet computer if it gotrepparttar 107900 data andrepparttar 107901 internet computer is responding "yes" or "no". There is also a certain amount of data to define what is being sent (an email or a web document or whatever) which eats intorepparttar 107902 line speed.

Well, okay, let's assume you are actually getting 20K from your 28.8K modem. There's worse news to come. The internet has lots of things that actually have nothing to do with content. There are cookies (http://www.internet-tips.net/Security/cookies.htm), advertising banners, comments, web bugs (http://www.internet-tips.net/Security/webbugs.htm), and a host of other things inserted into your web experience. A typical advertising banner is 7.5K, which in our 20Kbps example requires several seconds to load to your machine.

What can you do? First, if you can get a DSL or Cable modem connection torepparttar 107903 internet. It will probably cost aboutrepparttar 107904 same or only slightly more than your dialup connection and will improve your surfing experience by many times.

Second (or if you cannot get a higher speed connection) get an ad blocker (http://www.internet-tips.net/Security/adblocking.htm) installed on your system to remove those ads before they are downloaded to your machine. Why even bother downloading banners that you are never going to look at anyway?

I hope that helps clear things up a bit.
