GoDaddy Suspended My Account
March 24, 2009 (Tuesday)
WOKE UP TO THIS EMAIL FROM GODADDY
It has come to our attention that your hosting account for sunnyinla.com is causing an overload of the shared resources on this server. This, in turn, affects the usage of the server by other customers. To protect the overall health of the server, we have suspended your account while we migrate you to a different server to provide you time to resolve this issue. After migration finishes, FTP access will be re-enabled.
Unfortunately, we are not able to troubleshoot custom scripting, and therefore, we are not able to provide specific solutions. However, we have traced the issue back to your RSS feeds. If you want to serve as much content as you currently are providing you will need to move to grid hosting.
Grid Hosting is a flexible hosting platform that matches performance with demand. If your site’s traffic spikes, Grid Hosting responds by allocating more resources and keeping your site live. If your site is growing, Grid Hosting grows with it so you don’t have to manually upgrade to handle occasional large traffic peaks and experience any unnecessary downtime. With Grid Hosting, your site’s content resides on multiple servers; those server resources are pooled for optimal response times. This networked system helps achieve a high level of reliability because if one server experiences a large influx of traffic, Grid Hosting has resources in reserve which are allocated as necessary.
Additionally, other causes to this issue can include, but are not limited to, non-optimized scripts, high traffic, form spamming, etc.
Once you have identified the cause of the issue, please reply directly to this email with the steps taken to resolve the issue. If you are not able to resolve this issue, you should then consider the need to upgrade to a Dedicated Server.
UPDATE: I’ve canceled all my GoDaddy hosting accounts as of July 2009. Their servers are just way too overloaded.
