    Hey,
    My website is down because of the traffic
    I am using iPage web hosting
    They said they suspend my account because I've got a lot of traffic to my website
    My website gets about 3-4k visitors a day ONLY!
    iPage really pissed me off because they shutdown my website and now when my visitors go to my website they will be redirected to their web hosting plans so they get some people to sign up for their shitty web hosting!!
    Now I need my website to be live and working in under 48hours
    Any recommendations on which web hosting to use?
    I really need help before I lost all of my visitors :(
    Thanks in advance & sorry for poor English.

    I have heard good things about Hostwinds on this forum. They have a BST thread with BHW-specific deals I believe. I don't have any personal experience with them yet, but next time I need to buy a hosting plan, I'll probably try them out.

    Dude, take a MediaTemple and don't look back on shitty hostgator/ipage shared servers.
    MediaTemple is also shared up to some point but they have system to receive all your traffic easily, to distribute traffic to other servers if your server get too much resource usage. Grid System, look for it, for 40 usd (20 usd actually) you get almost dedicated server performance and usage that normally you would pay 150/250 usd. Many pro bloggers use mediatemple, to be able to receive 10k+ visits in short time easily, when some of their articles get viral effect.

    It's not just the number of visitors, it's the number of pageviews and more importantly the resources being used. If you are running a wordpress site, for example, and you have a lot of plugins that are resource intensive, you are going to run into the same problem with pretty much any host, so long as you are on shared hosting or VPS (which is essentially shared). What you need to do is optimize your website. If you are running wordpress, then install wp super cache first and foremost. Also, if you are running apache, look into htaccess commands that will compress header files. Lastly, I would suggest getting rid of any jquery includes if they aren't being used, and if they are being used then move the includes further down the page to where they are needed instead of in the header.

    Another thing you might have trouble with is comment spam (turn comments off in WP to fix until you come up with a better solution for comments) and wordpress crons using up resources.

    Shared hosting doesn't allow you much, but you can handle up to 20k visits a day if you set up your site properly (maybe more).

    iPage is a nightmare, been there, worst possible hosting I've ever used.

    I recommend Servinio, no problems at all since more than a year, check my signature.

    That makes sense, then. Lots of pageviews tends to mean a more resource intensive site. PM me, I can probably help you fix this asap.

    All true, but slightly disagree with this text quoted;from experience on big number of shared hosting packages,I know that it is not easy to handle 20k visits on shared hosting (even 2k) because they allow 25 to 35 concurrent sessions max, at once, even if resources and database usage is below their cap limit. Most of the time error 501 would come to many visitors.

    You'll probably want to look into getting a VPS provider, rather than a hostgator/ipage website. Especially considering Hostgator is the same company as iPage. So you'd be running into the same issue.

    You need to watch out when you're changing Web Hosts that you don't signup for the same company and run into the same issue a few days down the road. A lot of the companies out there are run by the exact same company, and in a lot of cases will even look the same (with a few minor color changes to the control panel).

    I can't post link, but if you google "endurance international group brands". Click on the first link for wikipedia.

    This page contains a huge list of companies that are owned by endurnace AKA ipage. Endurance is not a bad company. They are well priced.. but you get what you pay for. You pay a small amount per year, and you get shared hosting. If your website is using too much resources on their shared servers, then you have to go.

    I know you probably don't think too much about "Endurance" right now. But you could try their VPS accounts at Fatcow.

    Just try googling fatcow advanced hosting.

    You shouldn't have any issues with VPS.

    First how much profit are you making from your Website, if you make enough buy higher priced services they are better, you could even look into vps

    Oh my God don't you know ipage and hostgator are the same company? Recommending one over the other
    is painful to read.
