    Which actually happened with ebay before. Someone ordered a domain transfer and because ebay ignored that request they understood it as a yes and transfered the domain. For a few moments, all ebay traffic was then redirected to some shared server - and the website not accessible anymore.

    It will simply become unreachable. If it pulls too much resources the provider might have a policy to pull the plug and suspend the account and inform the customer to get a dedicated solution.

    What about data corruption? Could that be possible under high loads?

    I guess the worst thing that can happen is that your website would not be accessible anymore.

    started a topic What's the worst that can happen?

    What's the worst that can happen?

    If a server is hosting a very populer website and the server cannot handle is, what can happen?

    say like offtopic.com was hosted on a single account with minimium specs
