After approximately 7:00 PM PDT, this website goes offline (at least where I live), and I can't browse it until the next morning afterwards. Can you please fix this?

The web server crashed every night at 3 am German time for the past few days. I think I have finally found and fixed the issue.

Nope, the issue didn't fix. Your server crashed/went offline again.

The server could have malware installed that caused it to crash at 3:00 in the morning. I definitely know that there are films and creepypastas related to 3 AM, so I assume the malware would be related to that too.

It's recommended to run a virus scan on the server's Operating System (OS), to be able to remove the unwanted malware, etc.

The reason for the malware installation could be because of software and files you may have been downloading, or that another DNS server drive-by-downloaded it using an open UPnP connection.

Okay, so the server didn't crash again on March 23rd, 2019. Thanks for fixing up this issue!
