That could be the last straw shared hosting. 500 series error messages are assigned as server-side errors, and the 503-error means that your server – or at least the section you have on a server in shared hosting – is unavailable. Along with the 500 Internal Server Error message, a 503 error can be your best message yet. The message is, “Get out of shared hosting.”
Three Reasons to Quit Shared Hosting
Limited server resources. Typically, server resources are defined in two ways one is the amount of bandwidth allocated to each “resident” on the server. The second is storage capability – the gigabytes or terabytes allocated each client to handle their database. Under a shared hosting plan, your site can be penalized for a neighbor exceeding their bandwidth or exceeding your bandwidth can be expensive when it comes to overage penalties.
Not customizable. Shared hosting locks you into a plan that you can’t change. You have a certain amount of resources, and you may not have some important options that can help you to manage growth like custom databases, or extensions that help you to manage your site.
One-size-fits-all security. Are you planning on accepting credit cards? Not if you’re in shared hosting. Major players will not authorize a business to take online payments unless their server is PCI DSS compliant. Likewise, SSL certificates are the gold standard when it comes to verifying that a site is secure. SSL means that the route the information between the customer’s browser and the website is encrypted and secured.
