Topics I've Started

Hello, I'm new here with a few questions

27 July 2014 - 10:13 PM

I am new here, and have just a few questions.  I am really liking what I have seen so far and wanting to make a switch. Also, I am no web master, and many things are difficult, though I do try to learn.  I have been with my current host for a little over 3 years now.  They have great and fast support too.  So I cannot say much bad about them at all, except Ive had to move my site to different servers quit a few times.  I didn't really like that, and it goes down many nights around 1:30amEST time, or slows way dow to where no one can get in for half hour or more.  They say they found the site and suspended them, but it keeps happening.

My site is small and built with cakephp, very light weight.  My current cpu usage is 0%, and band with, due to google this month went from 60 meg to around 400 meg- Im gonna have to take my site off google.  Not sure what meg stands for, my guess is mg.  So I think I would still be ok on your shared hosting. If I'm right. 

How do you handle  DDOS attacks? 

What do you do for site's protection on shared hosting?

What happens when a shared hosting accounts ip is blackballed, or blacklisted, rather?

Can you help with ftp updates for my site-I'm terribly bad at using an ftp.  I don't have many.. I wish I could use an ftp without blowing things up or breaking them. 


Thank you.
