They take the site down telling me that we causing high load issues, now they tell me everything is okay, this is after I have ordered a dedicated server. I wish they would make their bloody mind up.

oh so that's what happened. I bet they hadn't moved you over to the dedicated server until you talked to them.

Dedicated servers are incredibly expensive, the cheapest I could find was nearly $100 a month. Because I have just been told that the website is not causing any problems, I am actually in the midst of cancelling the dedicated server, I'm not paying that amount of money when we don't need to, I need to try and find out exactly what was causing the problem. It happened at approximately 5 AM UK time so I am wondering whether we had some kind of attack, or just an enormous amount of traffic coming from North America.

That was just a message you get when they disable the main index page

Ahhh...I knew it had to be something going on with the site. I hope you get it straightened out!!

We have had our Groucho (Tiger O) for over a year now...have watched him grow from 2 inches to pushing 11 inches! LOVE watching him swim around in his little 55 gal world. :lol: We also have a fancy goldfish and a black moor in a separate tank. We love our fishies!...[IMG]

Actually, to be fair to Host Gator they are very helpful and they are there 24/7 whenever you need help. I just wish they wouldn't just take the website down instantly, maybe a couple of hours notice would be helpful.
