I am hoping someone can help me out. At the end of last week (Friday), I noticed our websites were loading extremely slow. After a couple hours of this slowness, the pages started to time out and my browser stated something about database errors. I called our hosting provider (GoDaddy) and they did some tests. They eventually came back to me and said other sites were having some problems and that we would be back up soon. Saturday morning we were back up, but the sites have been insanely slow compared to where they used to be. Even my WordPress dashboard loads incredibly slow.
The main site I am concerned about is http://www.kanebikes.com. The only big change I made to the site last week was on Monday, 10/8 when I added the Discus plug-in to my website. Other than that, it has been business as usual -- editing/adding/delete pages and posts. Everything is super slow now -- dashboard and website.
The smaller concern is at http://www.thebicycle.com. Every page except the home page gave me a 404 error this morning. So, I called GoDaddy and they had me change my permalinks to something else, then change them back to my setting. The links now work, but the site is still dreadfully slow. No changes had been made to this site for a couple weeks.
I am not sure what to do. Before the end of the week last week, our sites moved very quickly between pages and was a very smooth site.
Thank you for your time!!
