My visitor stats was incredibly disappointing yesterday and it was all thanks to my sites (the whole lot of them) experienced a forced downtime. It was all due to exceeding CPU resources. I don’t know the exact cause for this because my ISP (Intelvision) does a crazy thing where I can only access my server after midnight – I’m not a server person so I don’t know how these things work – but I have been told by pros that my ISP is to blame.
Anyway, WordPress plugins are the first possible culprits. This is actually ironically annoying. WordPress is supposed to be a CMS – why can’t it handle its own plugins? I’m very tempted to move out of it, but I can’t think of a better option at the moment. So I have no choice but to make do with this.
I have 2 options: separate websites that require high CPU resources from the ones that don’t. That way, none will share CPU quota. The other options is to enter a new plan.
Anyway, I do apologize for the downtime experienced yesterday and I am doing whatever I can to identify the cause of the problem.
