Access to all my sites is very, very, very SLOW!

Access to all my sites has suddenly crawled to a halt! I’m based in the UK and have currently 6 sites on the buckshot server and 10 on the haddock server. The ones hosted on buckshot don’t even load anymore. the Haddock server seems a little faster but pages still take an average of 20-30 secs to open.

Is this because I’m based in the UK and only have a basic happy hosting plan without any VPS?

Open a ticket with support.

It’s possible server load is too high, or Apache needs a restart.

The point you need VPS is when your sites traffic increases, being far away just adds a few more hops and probably1/2 a second. If everything suddenly crawled to a halt that sounds more like a server issue.
