I host two websites, flash arcades, that receive together around 5000-7000 visits per day. The traffic is around 10GB per day and with a maximum number of around 50 simultaneous visitors online.
The problem is that my websites is often inaccessible for me and my visitors.
Almost all visitors come from two countries, Sweden and Finland, and I also live in Finland. When I'm locked out, I'm still usually able to access the websites through a proxy. The problem is not limited to my home connection as I've been frequently unable to access my websites from other computers located in Finland. However when I use a proxy or use a computer outside Finland, I am also sometimes unable to access those websites but it occurs rarely during the busy weekends.
In addition, I'm always able to access WHM or Virtuozzo Control Panel from whatever computer.
My provider is EuroVPS (VPS with WHM/cPanel) and they have been excellent otherwise in terms of support and reliability. However, they haven't been able to give a solution to this problem.
The problem should not be lack of memory or CPU power. As memory is only used at max. 50% percent of my 512mb allocation and CPU is only clocking around 20% of the max. allocation. Bandwith usage is also at around 50 percent.
When this happens, ask some one else to check the server for you. So you can make sure if its blocking you only or everyone. After this happen, how do you fix it ?
Are you able to SSH to IP address of the server when this happen ?
As stated in my previous posts;
I'm still usually able to access the websites through a proxy.
I get blocked from other computers than my own. I've tried from a tleast 10 computers in Finland, and I frequently got blocked from all of them.
I get less frequently blocked from when I access from my university in UK, but it happens neverthless. I've got reports from people in the US from not being able to access my websites.
Yes, I'm always able to access the IP addresses of the server. It is only the websites that become unresponsive.

I find it hard to believe because then pretty much every ISP in the world would have put restrictions on accessing my websites. The servers IP is not blocked! It is the websites that become unaccessible. I;m always able to access the server itself.
