Server Overloading: If you are getting a major boost in the amount of traffic your website is experiencing and your hostage plan doesn’t equip you in handling so much customer traffic on your website, it can very well go offline. Besides this, if you have bought a shared hosting plan and other websites on that hosting plan are experiencing a surge in their traffic then also your website can go offline.

Server Maintenance: Web hosts have to continually update the software of their server. This can result into your website going offline and a major interruption in your services.

However, your site hosting server may be located in a completely different time zone which can be the peak hour for your website.

If an error message related to server isn’t showing up, then the fallacy most likely occurs on your website for example in its plug-in or it’s a theme conflict.

Free Web Hosting - If there is no fallacy with your website, it can very well be your host which is at fault. The host might be weak that the amount of traffic you are getting on your website cannot be handled by hoster. Another reason is that they are a poor-quality host with significant downtime. Free-hosting services offering free hosting of websites commonly suffer from these kinds of problems.
