    How much traffic are you getting? I have my site disabled by Hostgator when traffic spikes because of some plugins like YARPP and those that generate thumbnails.

    I am getting close to 3k visitors a day.Also its not the no of visitors which is causing problems.Its the high traffic spike during certain peak hours which is causing me trouble.

    Set up a reseller account or move to a vps server. You might also look at moving your hosting to hostdime. Never had an issue with them.

    3k a day? That's just small traffic. Spikes should not be at most 1,500 people clicking your site at the same time to get banned. Maybe you should do some tests on what is causing it. You should install WP Super Cache of course.

    3000? I got 2 site each >6000 unique a day on hostgator shared hosting without problem. It was happen to me too like you, hg suspend my script 3 times, then I tweak the super cache plugin.
    Do you use wordpress? I suggest using db cache reloaded combine + hyper cache, the best cache combo you'll ever see.
    If you are using wp super cache, remove all reject user agent list, because when google bot spider your site, it won't cache. I let caching for any spider bot so i empty the list. Combine with db cache reloaded for mysql caching, because access mysql really make high cpu usage too.

    I am getting all the traffic from youtube.Earlier when I was using Wp super cache they told me to install wp total cache.Now I donot know how to tweak this plugins.Can you please help me out on how to tweak this plugin?
    Also I am not having the money to spend for a dedicated server.If its needed then can you recommend some cheap dedicated server which serves the purpose?
