UPDATE: I’ve decided to move to a different webhost and I’m starting the process right now. I’ll be disabling comments on all posts. So expect some downtime while the DNS propagation takes place. It will take about 24-48 hours depending on your location.
At around 10 AM US Pacific Time yesterday, my blog’s hosting account was suspended, causing JaypeeOnline to be inaccessible. I was out of the house the whole day and didn’t know about it until I got home at around 10 PM. I found out about it after reading the email sent by my hosting provider and emails and offline IM messages sent by concerned friends/readers.
My hosting provider suspended my account because of high cpu usage. My blog traffic has been steadily increasing the past few months and I noticed that there’s been a huge increase the past few days but I’m not sure if that much traffic could use up that much resources. As far as I know, none of my recent articles have been Digged or Stumbled so the amount of traffic should’ve been manageable. I don’t run any resource extensive plugins or scripts on my blog either.
I’d like to apologize for any inconvenience that this downtime has caused. If I knew about it, I could’ve contacted my hosting provider and resolved the issue sooner. This recent event made me consider installing WP Cache or WP Super Cache here on JaypeeOnline. What do you guys think?
