This is part of our question and answers series, and this question is from one of the Shouter Mohit related to Hostgator placing a temporary block on the database. Here is exact Email Mohit received from Hostgator hosting: The database was found to be consuming an inordinate amount of processor time, to the point of degrading overall system performance. While we do limit each account to no more than 25% of a system’s CPU in our terms of service, we do not actively disable accounts until they greatly exceed that number, which is what happened in this case.
