What Happens to Someone Abusing System Resources


The offending site will be suspended, and the owner will be allowed to fix the problem or move to a Dedicated server.

It is possible that sometimes we suspend a problem directory, but not an entire account. All issues are taken on a case-by-case basis.

The owner can use a malware scanner that can automatically detect and remove malware such as the one found in the SiteLock.

SiteLock offers a comprehensive solution that can help prevent compromises and quickly recover if it does happen. Because we know the importance of website security, HostGator is happy to provide a special offer for customers interested in SiteLock:

How will I know if I use too many resources? There is no way to predict how many servers resources your site will use. If your site is causing problems, your account will be temporarily suspended, and we will notify you immediately via email on file.
