This was the biggest sale of the year for us (so far). But, we ended up with the dreaded website crash in the last hour or so. It took a monumental effort on the part of our engineering team to get the whole thing going again. Apparently, the error was caused due to our hosting provider, as the server went full.
I want to know how does this happen? I checked out this article: https://www.cloudways.com/blog/why-do-websites-crash/, and it goes a long way in explaining the situation. But, if someone could explain in layman’s terms, that’ll be awesome.
