My web hosting account was suspended due to high CPU usage. There was no traffic spike. My traffic increased slow and steady as always. What I don’t like, no warning email about high CPU usage. And suspended my web hosting account directly. Was asked to optimize my slow SQL query scripts…

In order to get back online, I disabled, and and some WordPress plugins. Only then, HostMonster L2 Technical Support was willing to activate back

So end of story? Nope, that’s just the beginning…
