Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
I'm experiencing some problems with my website

The website is an online image library housing images searchable by keyword and available to download as high-resolution quality jpegs. The database side of the site is an Access database and employs ASPJpeg to resize the images.

I have been receiving alerts from my hosting company that say HTTP URL strings are critical socket timeout after 10 seconds.

Basically this causes the website to overload and crash, requiring IIS to be restarted to get the site back online. I'm told this could be due to Google bots trawling the site to index it as it tends to happen in the early hours of the morning. The thought is that Google is opening numerous connections and there may be a problem with some not closing as they should and causing the site to crash. The developer I was in touch with previously said that some code could be written to highlight where these connections are not closing rather than trawling through pages of code to find them.

Due to my existing hosting company being a bunch of rip off merchants I now have to find a new hosting company and transfer the site to there but am concerned that this problem may still occur or others may occur after transferring the site.

I'm looking for help in transferring the site to a new host and also potentially fixing any problems that may arise due to this move and also fixing the problem that I had in the first place. (my existing host transferred the site to a virtual platform from a physical dedicated server and I encountered numerous problems which caused the site to crash on a regular basis every 10 minutes or so, again requiring a restart of IIS),

The site is now back on my dedicated server and I will be looking to move it to a new hosting company asap as the hosting company now wants to charge me triple what I was paying before.

Thanks
Kieran
