So as most of you know, I have kind of struggled a lot to get off and running smoothly, and most of my issues were related to other things going on, add ons, upgrades, conflicts in general, getting hacked twice... but I have noticed my forum today, and has done this many other times before (even back to when I had vB), frequently runs sluggish and/or will stall out. Now I know I have shared hosting... but I have also run forums (about 10 years ago) that were MUCH larger on shared hosting, and didn't have as much down time. Today, intermittently all day, it will start to run slow and then end up showing "server cannot be reached" or something like that just pulling a blank page. It's been happening to all members. Problem is, I paid for this hosting in advance, so am already out... and have heard VPS is way expensive on the month. I don't want to get trigger-happy and then just end up with the same problems due to it maybe just being the nature of the beast kind of thing. Any advice?? Anyone else with Blue Host that have the same problems or no problems?
