Anyone else out there use 1&1?


I have a site that I've hosted with them for a year and a half. And they've just frozen my account. Reason why was because my osc database was "putting too much load on the database"


Further to a previous warning of high load being generated on the





The database has reached a unacceptable load on the shared hosting setup

which is now affecting

other users.

Considering you were previously warned this would be a possibility you really don't have a reason for complaint.


Every host is allowed to establish acceptable use and load limits for their accounts on their servers and take appropriate action when necessary.


You can either get a dedicated or sometimes a VPS account and continue on.


From there you probably want to look into optimizing your code to reduce your database load.

Right to complain or not , maybe at least you'd query the above figures: where is the total of 492,619 queries coming from, it doesnt seem to add up from the break down?

and that over just 94 connects?

94 pages?

Either I do not get the 94 correct or there defenitely is something wrong here.

that would be a small 500 queries for each connection

(in my case once per page a db connection is established, 500 querries per page?)

I used 1&1 :'( never again! Try cancelling your account...impossible.

If you think it's been canceled, think again.

Get yourself a dedicated server from idaq.com.

As I have 30,000+ items in my store & mega traffic, I needed it.

But best of all, their support system is second to none.
