    Here is a couple problems I am having right this second . Hopefully someone could point me in the right direction .

    In case most of you have not heard I am going to be running a getafreelancer clone type of site with a twist . My host is on vacation at this present point in time . I am also worried that my host will not be able to handle the site as I ran a blog and the blog crashed the whole website ,cpannel and everything.

    This is going to be alot more taxing than a simple blog . So I will need a host that will be capable of handleing that .

    Now for the other part my host did all instalation of my scripts at no extra cost . I have no clue how to install a database or anything like that nor do I care to learn . does anyone know of a host that can set up my site plus allow me to pay monthly plus will be able to handle the server load ?

    *sigh*

    How much traffic was your blog getting to crash a server? Thats unheard of. I can probably help you out. PM me.

    Use WP-supercache for anti-crash.

    Also Hostgator, lunarpages, dreamhost should perfectly be able to handle your blog.

    if your serious about your site, transfer it to a decent host. For what your doing hostgator would be perfect.

    The niche your targeting your never going to get over 200uv a day, and with that type of traffic there is no way it could have been the servers lack of ability that caused the crash. Look at your error logs, you have some fucked up bits of code somewhere and you will spot it in the error logs by the timeouts, etc
