503 Error Resource limit exceeded If you are seeing this page, your site is exceeding the allowed resources on the server.

  • Your account usage exceeds the allotted amount of simultaneous HTTP connections, which varies by plan:
    • The StartUp plan is limited to 15 simultaneous HTTP connections.
    • The Drive, Turbo Boost, and Turbo Max plans are limited to 50 simultaneous HTTP connections.
    • Turbo Boost and Turbo Max plans with Performance Plus are limited to 100 simultaneous HTTP connections.
