slow shared server - my comments

One of our ashram websites was becoming very slow to respond, and one of us submitted a ticket to Nettigritty. I interjected with the following comments, when Nettigritty responded that they did not see any issue:

In general, these shared web servers will not be very responsive - you might have seen how slow the web control panel is. So, if the mysql server is also on a shared server, or on a shared network connection like our cyberoam, that may be the reason.

The solution may be to use asynchronous protocols instead of real time updates, or using larger time-out settings on the server, or using protocols which run over http/https like xml / soap. (But SOAP has been deprecated.) In general, it is very dangerous to directly leave the sql server open to the web.
