Slow and not reliable site

Recommended Posts

I noticed that my site is not really stable: sometimes pages takes time for opening and in these cases I know my browser will show me "Cannot open...". Usually if I click back and then try again it helps, but often can be very frustrating. It happens often when I search items, but really can happened with any page.

Sure my store have some modes installed, but I believe that not as many as many other stores, probably much less. Can somebody tell me if somehow I can check what can lead to problem like this? I use freehostia as my host, which is very cheap, can it be it? I tried run store with no compression, now I turned it on, but cannot see much difference honestly. Just in case somebody want to check what I'm talking about: www.computers777.com

 

Thanks for any advice.

I did a few searches on your site, it loaded very fast for me.

 

Thanks for quick reply.

First page usually load fast.

Please try to do a bit more complicated, like a search, click something, then something else. I'm sure you will get the error on some point. Thank you for help.

 

P.S. Sorry, you did search already...

Interesting. The things happened on my computer at home and work...

Strange.

I don't know much, but I believe, if I am not on a dedicated server I am on a share host.

Taking in account that host cheap despite general high rating and good reviews I am definitely on a share hosting.

Thanks guys.

Probably I cannot do much here.

there are shared and private, if you were on private you would know because you would be paying more and you would have asked for it..

 

It PROBABLY is the fact that you are sharing, but you CAN do something, contact your host and ask how much it costs for a dedicated server. I will probably upgrade to a dedicated server when my site goes public.

A great place for newbies to start

DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP. My time is valuable, unless i ask you to PM me, please dont. You will get better help if you post publicly. I am not as good at this as you think anyways!

 

HOWEVER, you can visit my blog (go to my profile to see it) and post a question there, i will find time to get back and answer you

You know, I want to see at least how it will be going before I go to dedicated server or change my host at all.

I just started, have no sells yet and have some problem with Google Base (I released some team about that in another post). Bat hey, if I'll see at least some traffic and customers, why not to go to better host? But now I try to distinguish between host problems and something else, I don't know. I just noticed that sometimes site is very responsive and sometimes it's lazy as hell. I don't think that Google crawling cause of it (this Google thing checks my site constantly, report shows it is there already 5 days with no break.

If your having problems and the site is slow, how do you think you will get any customers before they get frustrated and go elsewhere?

 

Contact your host and ask them to move to a different server. One that is not so full. If thy won't do that move to another host.

You know, I think the same way as you. But I want to see at least some occasional traffic come. As I imagine you need to have around 30 customers or more to come onto your site, until some costomer will buy something. What the point to change host if you see one customer coming a day, and possible it is not even a customer. That's why I think is a bit too early. I know I have product which I can sell: I try them on e-Bay and it sell even with higher price. Changing host is not as simple as it sounds, so I want wait a bit.
