This is not a problem on Arcen's site. It seems the host service they use (CloudFlare) has technical issues. Again.
Other sites that use the same service have the same problem (I noticed it on some sites). Seriosuly, there seems always to be something wrong with this service, some sites are always offline.

Cloudflare is an intermediary which reports problems on the far side, which is why you would see it a lot. Our host is A2 hosting. Are the problems still here?

Nope. It's been behaving. Was just during the day I made this post.

I also didn't see any performance impacts.

We're still chasing it with hostwinds, unfortunately.  Does it seem any better at all?

Should all be fixed now -- they had to reinstall MariaDB for some reason, but that seemed to solve it going down and coming back up constantly.
