    Hi

    I have a website http://www.blogbigtime.com and although hosting on a dedicated server with 4 GB RAM (this is the only website on the server), the website goes down again and again.

    This is my 3 hosting provider and am facing the same problem.

    Can anyone have a look at the website and tell me if it can be fixed to optimise it?

    [Moderated - per forum policy we close threads discussing hosting so removed from here instead]

    Thanks
    Gaurav

    Using multiple online scanning tools, I was unable to run any tests on your site. You will need to work with your web host or hire an expert as we can only help troubleshoot running sites...

    There's too much of everything.

    Page load time: 12.28s
    Total page size: 1.67MB
    Total number of requests: 121

    You can't have everything. Make choices, cut everything that isn't completely necessary.

    f.e. your articles are presented by:
    - latest
    - popular
    - most liked
    - featured
    - browse articles
    - recommended
    - top authors

    It's a bloody mess!

    You have 3 different content sliders, tons of images, a massive amount of css and js files, ...

    On top of that, strange and weird pieces of js:
    WP Content Copy Protection
    popup scripts
    ...
    These all add event listeners that slow down your page and make it completely irresponsive and slow.

    I don't want to sound harsh but it's a mess. Think about what you want, how you want to tell your story and make choices. You can't have it all. Think minimal! Take a look a http://www.microsoft.com/. That's a huge company but look how simple that site is.
    Do that.
