    There is no way with the site like that that could be using that much cpu, something must be wrong like a script messed up leaking memory

    I've been running dedicated since about 05 I wouldn't use a normal shared webhost for anything important/serious.

    A VPS wont make any good if the Server have 30 nodes on where some "hosting companies" run, hosting hundred of customers, or if they have single HDs instead of RAID or low RAM, etc.

    If you don't want to depend of anybody get a dedicated server.

    Thats why I stoped using shared webhosts. With as much as webhosts oversell resources these days, its a wonder anyone can get a site running.

    100 clients each at 200gb of bandwidth and 20gb of storage. Must be some low end sata drives in that machine.

    Right, but we are talking about shared accounts on where you share resources with at least other 100 sites (the average number of sites on most companies x 2 or 3 though).

    Sure, you can try to run google in a shared account too and acuse to the host of use underpowered and overloaded servers.

    Same happen with "Chat like" scripts or plugins. Some hosts may allow it, but many other will not, but any of those, are not directly related to the server specifications on where the site is hosted.
    Sure it is, if you cram 1000 sites onto the same underpowered machine, the webhost is not going to allow users to use resources like that since it will bring the server to its knees. Todays servers should be able to handle a moderately large number o f Queries per second if the software and hardware are configured and setup correctly.

    If a host oversells then you do run the risk of causing high server loads. But it is best to ask beforehand, if you opt for cheap hosting, many will use low spec servers or will be overselling.

    You may want to contact to your next potential host before signup, specially since you have a shoutbox which is banned in many hosts.

    Can you have them migrate you over to a dedicated for 1 month until the event is over?

    Then you can get through the event? Or turn off all plugins and stay where you are for a few days? Your site should run just fine on shared.


    Lots of good hosting companies, webhostingtalk even has special offers, but there are many things you have not stated that would affect what people could suggest e.g. 40% of a really slow server? Fast server? VB4 suite? vb4 forums?

    started a topic need a new host quick!!

    need a new host quick!!

    ah nightmare - just recently moved across to vb4 from php. For the last 9 months our forum has been building up to a massive charity event (the largets of its type in the world) which climaxes this sunday.
    Anyway we have been hosted on a sharde plan with 1000megs for about 2 years then suddenbly account suspended - took ages to find out why - apparently our forum was using upto 40% of the resources (their limit is 4% - I received no notifiaction as they had an old email address!!
    So the only solution they have is to go from dhared hosting at $5 a month to their dedicated at $159 a month.
    My site cannot afford this. We have 212 memebrs, vbulletin suite and a photopost gallery (around 200 photos) and that is it -can anyone suggest a host? also Im rather worried how such a small site can drain so much resource? we have a shoutbox and advanced stats running but thats iand even then as I said 212 members - most we have ever had on at one time is around 25!! we dont run an arcade or anything like that.
    Im really miffed that this happened 2 days before a charity event so any help would be great
    thanks

    Brett
