Get those festival tickets

Munro, Ken
July 2007
SC Magazine: For IT Security Professionals (UK Edition);Jul2007, p19
The author suggests the use of a payment web server to purchase tickets for a live music or sporting event on the day they are released. The payment web server is typically at another uniform resource locator (URL) that is far less heavily loaded unlike an event website, which becomes overly crowded since everyone is trying to gain access to it. He recommends users to figure out which ticketing business is handling ticketing for the event. Users may then navigate direct to that URL the moment the event goes live.
