What should you do if your customers are trying to access your business website but are frequently getting the 503 server error? Are there ways to clear this up? Is it time for a new server?

This error occurs when the server is unable to handle requests due to a temporary overload or due to the server being temporarily closed for maintenance. The error signifies that the server will only temporarily be down. It is possible to receive other errors in place of 503. Contact the server administrator if this problem persists.
