Hopefully this will be sorted shortly as we have finally got the passwords to access the hosting service site...
Sorry about this guys, hopefully Fran will have good news for us soon.

This is the response I have had from our host:

I am sorry, it appears that we have had some load spikes over the last couple of days for the server that your site is hosted under. Keep in mind that due to the nature of the shared service, these load spikes can happen on occasion. Our administrators are constantly monitoring the services , and are working on mitigating any such issues.

To explain a bit, we are on shared hosting which means the server box we sit on has other people on it too (think about it like we're parked in a flat with lots of other people in different flats, as opposed to the more expensive option of having our own house). Another site on the server has been having "load spikes" e.g lots of people hitting their page and this is causing us to slow down  :[ (like trying to get in the shared front door when next door has a party).

Hopefully the issue will repair itself and it won't cause much issue but this is the nature of shared hosting. Please continue to report any slowness or errors here so that we can assess the impact this has on all of you and decide best course of action.
