Website timing out!

    Is there a need to rebuild caches after a update? My forum has been timing out every now and then and the host said its not their problem. I looked at the server stats and the load is .88. Do you have any ideas why the forum would be timing out?

    site looks great.
    No timing out issues (for me).

    One thing I noticed was I saw this special countdown timer.
    I figured it was important.
    But there was nothing more I could do to learn about it.

    can't you make that click-able with a link to more information on it ?

    No its just a count down. Before I reported the problem here I rebuilt all the caches on the website. IDK if it helped or not?

    A countdown with no link or information SURE IS JUST A Count Down.

    Timing out in what way?

    Are you on shared hosting or a VPS?

    Its shared hosting and the website sometimes takes forever to load. I am prepared to switch hosts if it will fix the problem.

    P.S. My host is HostGator!

    I would suggest the problem is with the host.

    If it's timing out then it's a server issue.

    Ok thank you, I am going to change host tonight then. I can not afford to have the website timing out with what little traffic that I get.

    it is super fast for me still.
    just as fast as xenforo.com
    you'll probably want to research more before changing hosts.

    What do I research? My host has no idea what the problem is.

    In that case I think that it is time that you start looking for a new host.

    HostGator usually doesn't.

    Well then I think for the good of my website, I am better of switching hosts.

    Hostgator has enabled Cloudflare (y) and the website is loading like lighting for me now. So I am going to hold off on the move for 48hrs until I see if there are any more problems.
