you can view your cpu error logs... i was w/ bluehost and had the same issues.

file manager > in the same level as public_html open tmp > cpu exceed logs

i bet they all point to vbshout.php and photopost (i think it was showgallery.php) adding muliable games (bulk install) in arcade would crash it too.

bluehost dont like shoutboxes... i know if i uploaded more than 2-3 pics at a time in the gallery it would crash my site.

i think bluehost is ok if your running a smaller plain site. start adding the bells and whisles and the cpu exceed errors never stop. but for 8 bucks a month i guess its expected.

i went to a vps and been very happy. fast and it will run my shoutbox and i can bulk upload.

I never seen a host like that that give CPU error. I seen the error log which was coming from Photopost gallery. I don't see is coming from my vbshout. If i need to do some mantainance like scan photo or rebuilt images, than the cpu error will start. I run this atlease twice a months. Like one of the members mention in here try it probably more reliable. I looked at there website for a dedicated $44 /months not bad at all. I am paying $19.99 /months with bluehost. I don't know how bluehost got over 400,000 customer. Now, if you are asking about CPU error in there chat room, they automatic refer to help site. I assumed lots of peoples are reporting the CPU error and lives chat is unavailable.

Maybe end of this year I might look into dedicated server hosting. The only issue is timing concern and downtime. Angkor

i think they are getting worse. i was w/ bh for a year before my problems started and was very happy. then out of no where my site was down w/ that error 3-4 times a hour. so i think they either moved me... overloaded the server i was on or tighned up there policies. or maybee they just trying to get more people on that high cpu plan.

i think there sucess is their support.

I to use BH, When I first started using BH, everything went great. Their support is great & never had problems with their support. Last month, I started getting DB errors from hell...From out of nowhere. Then came daily to hourly cpu exceed limit. I have 2 septate hosting packages with BH, 1 with 15 sites on it & the other with 9 on it....Both must be on same server, because when I get th cpu errors, they occur on both sites at the same time.
I have been very comfortable with BH, but my comfort level is diminishing quickly.

i use bluehost at the moment, just starting year 2. the first year i never had one problem so i just renewed for another year.

the last few days i am getting the cpu overusage a couple times in a short period of time and i am the only one on the forum.

i killed almost all the add-ons but i got the error right after that.

i would love some recommendations for good hosting. i have a small forum, 30-40 users a day and about 50 guests,

I had some similar issues with a host earlier this year. I did quite a bit of research to find a new host. I decided to go with a VPS, and pared down my list of possible companies to liquidweb and knownhost.

liquidweb run "managed" vps setups, and knownhost run "semi-managed". I didn't have a lot of server experience so I almost went with liquidweb. But after PMing with one of the reps from knownhost on webhostingtalk, I decided to give them a try with one of my small sites.

The result is that they've been great. I've been with them for close to ten months now and their service is excellent. I've had no downtime that I'm aware of. Their response time to support tickets is so fast, it's amazing. And they've been patient with my newbie questions, walking me through things and at the same time offering to "do it" for me as well.

Recently, I moved my main site over to knownhost to the same VPS account as my smaller site and all is good.

If you're looking for a possible VPS host, they might be worth a look.

If you go with them, let me know how it works out for you.
