Please describe your problem. Over the last month I have been getting multiple people informing me of the forum being really slow and sometimes getting timed out errors, I have yet to see this on my own computer. I have used another users computer and seen the problem the site is sometimes fast at loading initially but browsing and posting can grind to a hault. I have tried multiple browsers on this pc and also tried clearing the cache but still the problem persists.

I have also been in contact with Host gator who tell me they do not offer support for this kind of issue and there is no server errors.

Any idea what I can do before attempting to move the board?

Just checked your site and yes its loading very slow, does speed up but then crawls like dialup.
Thought i would let ya know to confirm issue.

re-checked site and received this error

re-checked after reading your post site loads fast, surfed around site no issues atm.

I had a similar issue with slowness a few months back my host moved me to a newer server after many complaints no issue's after move and yes my previous server was over sold. Could explain why your host said there was no issues on their end maybe theres too many users on your server.
