Yeah, the second time happened to me. Is it frequent?. The last time was about a week ago I think

Is it because there is too much traffic or something? With the recent teaser for the next update we are really hyped. Is there some limit for this site?

It has happened twice, last time they allowed me 20% more account executions for free but we passed that so now I paid and this allows 100% more than before. We lasted more than half a month so at current levels this should be enough but perhaps not in the future. I don't really understand why so much resources are needed. I'm afraid I've set the forum up in a bad way somehow.

Could do research online on how to cheaply host it yourself or something like that.

SiteGround has this uncomfortable limit on page views... Perhaps CellLab is too good for them :)
I have a tiny site hosted by JustHost and they don't have any limit on page views.

Maybe we should have waited for the next cycle to publish the Teaser. I didn't know that this might be an issue. When the update comes out, traffic is going to be much higher. Something like new Walkthroughs might even create a spike.

As always, if there's anything we can do, let us know.

A tiny site :lol:

The basic plan would be US$ 3.95 per month:
https://www.justhost.com/web-hosting/signup

I'm not advocating for it specifically; it's the only hosting service I've ever tried and it doesn't limit how many times the page is accessed.
I'm fairly sure that this is more a spot than a real comparison:
https://web-hosting.thetop10sites.com/t ... sting.html
...but it gives some price range for a few options. GoDaddy is pretty popular I think.

Also PC Magazine has a review but no prices:

i hope it works cuz this forum is too precious to lose and it strictly depends on petter but it should all turn out well i hope.

The prime package looks affordable and pretty good in terms of content though.
