JustHost Suspended MePosted on May 13, 2011 | 22 comments
Yesterday I JustHost suspended my account. This meant I couldn’t access my blogs. I panicked because I spend tons of time building up this site.
Just Host offer unlimited hosting space and unlimited bandwidth, but as per our terms we will suspend any website which exceeds our 10% CPU/MEM/MySQL policy.
According to them I was WAY over the limit by about 50%. I don’t understand this because I don’t get that much traffic.
They offered me another server that would charge me about 140 dollars a month. Yeah right! Like I could afford that! They switched me to another server on their site (still confused why they would suspend me if all they were going to do is move me to another one of their servers).
I need time to regroup and think about what I am going to do. This mean I am just going to stop writing for a while.
Sure the site is back up but for how long? Will JustHost suspend me again? I don’t want to put a lot of work into something that will be penalized for bringing in traffic.
I will see you soon I hope (especially at your sites)! I want to leave you with one last serious question (If you use wordpress.com then this question won’t apply to you.):
How well prepared are you to handle a traffic spike on your site (I ask this even though traffic was the same as usual for me)?
