503 : Service Unavailable

What is a 503 Error?

A 503 error message indicates that there is an issue preventing access to the site but also lets visitors know that, although the service or data is temporarily not available, the target site still exists.

Note: Search engine rankings temporarily remain in place while a 503 error page is displayed. This gives an opportunity to address the underlying issue while maintaining search rankings. If the underlying issue is not resolved, however, search engine rankings will ultimately be affected.

What Causes a 503 Error?

503 errors are specific to certain issues. Typically if you are seeing this when connecting to your ZabwinoHosting site it is related to one of the issues below:

Exceeding the Processes Limit

ZabwinoHosting may need to block access to a website using more processes than allowed by our Terms of Service. This is often due to a script or plugin on your site misbehaving and using excessive resources – this can threaten the stability of the entire server.

If this is the case ZabwinoHosting will send email to the account in question. Please review your mail for any message from ZabwinoHosting with the phrase “TOS/CPU” or “TOS/MySQL” in the subject. This message will include details of the issue and the steps we recommend to help resolve it.
