3. a new customer is abusing the server
I know usually the best thing to do is fix the site itself but a host is not going to mention what's happening on their end unless you really really bother them, then they will admit that something is wrong on their end.
So try to troubleshoot as best as you can, then ask and in some cases demand to move to a different server. They would rather keep you as a customer and do the move than to argue with you and tell you to leave. I've seen this trick work many many times.
Alright. I just updated the ticket I have with my host to ask for a possible server switch. In the meantime, any other possibilities?
