"Advicenators has been suspended because it was crashing the server with massive MySQL usage,
Thank you for allowing me to work with you!"
I fired back a TON of questions just now, because let's face it, that e-mail leaves much to be desired. I think the big question I need to ask is how to get my fucking money back, because as far as I'm concerned host gator has failed me 100%. the host business blows!
and before anyone comes up and recommends a host, you should know that I go with recommended hosts, and this crap happens to me. just because it works for grandma millie's homepage doesn't mean it works for my 8000 member, 70GB/month PHP monsters that I feel too guilty to pull the plug on. these are my projects, I worked hard on them, I want them to run and they can't... it's depressing. excessive SQL? what's excessive? with no monitoring being shown to me, I never know. how many queries is too many? is it how the databases are indexed? I've tried to research and minimize trauma to the server but it hasn't helped, I guess.
