Finally after being down 5 hours my site is back up. My host basically pulled my site because we were getting 800 plus hits a minute.
At first we thought it was a DDoS attack but it wasn't.
Anywho was just curious what others did when their sites went down.
I basically clicked the refresh button over and over again and almost cried.

So they pulled your site?
And if by hits, you means hits not uniques, the surge wasn't that great. Even if it was uniques, slashdot will give you a pop, no reason to shutter a site unless you have a poorly written script, did you yell at your host? They should be helping you when you get a surge, not hurting you.

Looks like your host jumped to conclusions without checking the traffic. I'd be pissed if that happened to me. Also I'd be finding me a new host. Good luck!Travelin' Man

One or both of the following occurred. Your host is an amateur, and or you should have had a much better relationship with your host.
Do you actually know someone there you can call by their first name? If not, time to say goodbye.

I can't switch host, just yet. I entreated into a contract with them. Basically they would provide 1 year Service in exchange for Top Advertising and promoting their hosting biz on the site. Which was pretty decent when I entered into the contract.
This is the 3rd time he has done this as well. First time when we got slashdotted. Traffic was high and he pulled the site but since I was on the PC I saw when it went down and he put it back up. It was only down for a few minutes.
Second time was when google started posting our news articles. We posted some pictures of some new nokia phones and site was down for 2 hours because he freaked.
And then today. My contract is up soon so I will be moving. Sad thing is. Two and a half months after I got into the contract with my host I started my own hosting business. And I host a few sites that have had high spikes in traffic and never had the need to pull any.

The host has a contract to provide a service, and three times he has consciously and deliberately stopped providing it?
If I were you I'd have a new host before I go to sleep for the night.

Move your sites asap and let the empty space just sit. You will lose more by trying to stay with them.
This is your business, don't trust someone like them to keep you running.Deborah Carney

I doubt your contract is binding since they pulled your site three times just for getting hits. They need to help you not hinder. I'd been gone after the first time. The third would make me think I was doing this as a hobby. Get a real host and pay a few bucks if it's earning you money.

Advice given, up to you to take it.

My site has been mentioned on Tech TV (and other TV programs) a few times. That's always good for some really short-term spikes. I think I've seen around 200 page views per minute during those times.
