I've got four sites running inside GoDaddy's Shared Linux Servers.
Sometimes, the response time is nominal, but there are times when the response times on clicks, just access the website, trying to access the login page, trying to get to the dashboard, etc. exceed 5 minutes each. I could see a hit on the first page load, especially when it has to swap the address space in, but after it is loaded, the performance problems persist.
Even for a shared system, this is quite unacceptable. These sites tonight are not even workable. Some of the time, I get 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage' messages. This is just trying to get to the main page.
At 9PM tonight, I first made a basic change - adding a child to a parent page and then I could not access the website for over 10 minutes. I though I really broke something, so I logged on to the GD Customer Site and restored the database to the prior backup. That ran in about 7 minutes. Then, the site was still abysmally slow. I then went to another site, one that just has a basic WP install. That also displayed the same poor response times. Right now, I can’t even login to that one either. I can view some pages, at times, but the login attempts fail with the MSIE cannot display website messages.
As an IT officer for a major financial firm, I am not impressed with the service I am getting. I know these are basic shared servers, but I do not even have a load on them. I’m hesitant to upgrade service with them since their shared servers aren’t even working properly enough to customize them.
If they are doing system backups, then why are they doing it at 9PM – 10 PM?
Does anyone else have this problem?
