    I have a domain hosted on hostgator and i plan to send a bunch of traffic to the site.

    It will be going from 0 hits a month to something like 20 - 40 thousand...
    Will this cause a problem?
    Will they shut down my service?


    What If I am redirecting off the domain name, would that be less likely to cause trouble?

    40k hits a month is nothing - even on shared hosting. That's of course unless your visitors use up a huge amount of bandwidth, in which case keep an eye on your bandwidth limit and expect a nice letter from your host 'suggesting' you to switch to a VPS.

    Wrong section for this thread by the way ...
