    Get a better host. It is well known that Godaddy is generally lousy hosting. If you are using shared hosting, try moving to a VPS.

    not always a marketing tactic sometimes your site really consuming high resources. You can check that by going into cpu and concurrent usage details in your cPanel and check for snapshots and details of the script which is causing and consuming high resources. Dont know if godaddy allow that to see or not.

    Would definitely recommend stepping away from GoDaddy as a host. Get a VPS, and if you are inexperienced with setting it up get one with CPanel or Plesk.

    then it might be true that they are trying to upsell, but still you can ask their support to provide you the details to check, as a customer its your right to ask them to provide you more details about resource abuse, if they refuse to provide you the details you can move your site to other reliable hosting providers, trust me there are alot

    Can't stand GoDaddy as they do these type of tactics all the time. I highly suggest switching over to another host.

    I recommend Namecheap. Have been with them the past 3 years and love their customer support.

    Videos can add up to quite a lot of bandwidth, so that might be the culprit you are looking for.

    Like others said, check and identify which plugin is causing the issue. If you're aren't sure, list down the plugins you've installed here so some of us can identify it for you.

    Also, are you using any fake or cracked theme or plugin? It may also cause the issue as it does some malicious activity in the background (email spamming, code injection, and so on).

    Lastly, install anti-bot traffic and caching plugins. Every time a user visits your website, your webhost server uses its resources to cater to the traffic (imagine - grabbing data from SQL database, processing the many plugin codes, then showing it). So installing caching plugins to show ready-static page helps, along with anti-bot plugin, will help tremendously. This is particularly true if you're under attack by referrer spam, or backlinking softwares/bots.

    Caching plugins I can recommend are W3 Total Cache and, my favourite, WP Fastest Cache. Anti-bot plugin would be Block Bad Queries (BBQ), and StopBadBots. And Akismet helps too.

    You cant do anything just switch resource are not just the plugins and themes but it also contains the amount of traffic you receive and soon enough Godaddy will pause your website for a time being after the 100% of the resource limit is reached.
