[thelist] Alternative to myhosting.com because of IIS Service Unavailable error?

I can only offer this anecdote. A few years back I was hosting an ASP site 
with a low-cost provider and would frequently get these types of errors. 
After some back and forth with their tech support they revealed that the 
problem was not necessarily with my site, but with other sites on the same 

They moved my site to a "higher tier" server and the problems stopped.

So essentially, you may be suffering because of one of two things
- someone else's poorly written code
- too many websites hosted on a single server
