I guess it's corect that if You pay next to nothing for hosting/reseller account, You can't expect to much.
I signed up more or less for fun whith a company that had an increddible offer. I just had to try it.
Look at the possibilities. They were in fact offering me my own server for £ 14,50.
My intention were to test the service, and not use it for paying clients. I pay £ 14,50 a month and are able to host 50 domains, each with with "unlimited space and 20 GB transfer each month.
(Everything is on a Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz, cache size: 512 KB, Memory: 1024MB)
I have had this acount (and more or less forgot about it), but decided that I would let some friends use it for free. Two small acount just using abour 4MB/10MB a month, and one forum. This forum have used about 40MB/1600MB so far this month, and the server is barely crawling away.
They have for sure not been able to deliver. And then for the last bit of april it was not possible to get any
answers from them. In the end of april I finaly found out they were going to sell the company, and they posted in their forum that the company were sold, and that we would be contacted by the new owners. Nothing happened for 10 days, and the server starting behaving a bit weird.
I decided to try to track down the new owner, and I finaly did.
They promised that they would fix all problems, keep the same prices and the same good service. Since I got that reply from them, I have sendt three e-mail whithout any reply (regarding if they could fix some settings in my account, that mailserver had been down all day, and so on. Still no answer, and it's now about 36 hours since the first mail.
I noticed that the server vas extremely slow earlier tonight, and checked the server status, and I noticed that the Server Load went from 10.22 - 114.20 in about 25 min.
Wandering when everything is going to chrash compleately.
In general - you do get what you pay for, in both the short and long term, when it comes to the overall service. Corners need to be cut somewhere to offer something for nearly nothing. Bless your lucky stars you've found this out now, rather than later
I'm impressed that your even able to pull the load stats off the box at such high loads. I have no idea what the general load on these boxes are but it looks like there is a runaway script or process on the system which is causing the insane spike.
