    Hello there, there's a website that I constantly visit, but the problem is, it goes down various times and for a long time. Here's the website:
    http://www.eltwhed.com/
    It's actually a forum, so I might be able to contact with the owner or the moderators. What should I tell them to prevent this downtime? Does anyone know what causes this downtime for the website? And thanks.

    You wait.

    Websites go down because of technical issues most of the time. Usually they'll come back up, but it could be down for good.

    But why does this specific website goes down many times and for a long time?

    It's not uncommon for a forum to go down often. You may wanna get in contact with some of the staff if you want to know more.

    It's most likely because of the hosting they are using. Ask them why it goes down so much, they will know not us.

    I fail to see why you thought that response was unexpected. If we all had ESP we would know but we haven't. You had already answered your own question. Ask the forum owners, simples.

    Well, for how long can a website go down? Can it last for more than a month?

    If its been down for that long then it's most likely been closed for good.
