I have a godaddy hosting account under windows shared hosting. It seems like every other week my site goes down for a few hours during business hours through causes that are outside my site. My site contains hundreds of pages written in classic ASP using SQL Server and its up-status is critical because of client-accessible data. The site works fine when it is up and running. A comment I've heard a few times from GD tech support is that windows shared hosting is an aging platform and I would be better served by switching to plesk, with which I had a bad experience in the past. Of course they will offer no guarantee that the plesk environment would be more stable. VPS is not a financially viable option at this time.
I've been considering trying the different environment and porting the site over to PHP, but I was curious to see if anyone here has any suggestions about a good solution path.
