    my hosting account on justhost is suspended for exceeding their 10% CPU/MEM/MySQL policy. i have 5 blogs that are currently bringing traffic and sales. all are on wordpress and i havent had the chance to back them up.

    and they want me to upgrade to a dedicated server for $150/per month. i dont have enough to spend on that level of hosting.

    what do i do now? this is a real pain

    See if they have a live chat and talk to one of the customer service reps and ask if they can back it up for you. They shouldn't have a problem with that at all.

    i would look in to going with hostgator. Just talk to there live support, there support is amazing and see if you can host it with them with one of there normal packages.

    Also ask if you transfer your domains to them will you be able to transfer the whole websites content even though your account has been suspended, just explain it to them there always really helpful for me :)

    get a VPS, I assume you are using shared hosting right now. You can get a VPS for less then $20 per month for something basic. Buy once though, don't try to save money in the short run of things, you'll just end up paying more later on.

    cant get access to live chat, so i just sent a ticket.

    i wanna transfer to another host, but i paid $70 for the whole year and this is my third month with them and it would be a waste.

    also what is vps? if by shared hosting you mean me and the hosting provider than yea.

    Check out knownhost for vps packages starting at $25. I have one and have never had any issues with them.

    Code:

    VPS = Virtual Private Server

    You will be able to run and do MUCH more with a VPS than your standard hosting.

    10% resources is all that they allow you? that sucks man, i would also recommend host gator as they allow upto 25% resources but if u can afford a dedi, then that is the way to go!

    ask for your money back after you get them to do a backup - as they offer a lifetime money back guarantee.

    I use justhost for all my new projects and once i start getting over 1k traffic a week i swap them over to a better hosting account - justhost is fantastic...., for new projects.

    Don't worry, they have a full cpanel backup so you can request it. Was happened to me in the past and i requested my money back and they also gave me a backup. And don't fall for the "you can take half of your money back and still keep the hosting account with us" because they will slap you again.

    This is not true.
    And its depend on what the CPU your host use.

    Just imagine if HG use Dual Core server while JH use i7.
    Then the 10% is more than HG 25%


    Now my host is using i7 860 with 8G RAM

    I ran into the same issue with justhost, and their customer service is extremely lacking, finally after emailing back and forth for a week I convinced them to refund my yearly payment since they "froze" my account after only 5 weeks.

    Keep emailing them and opening support tickets until they give you a refund.
