Its always good to share your articles on Digg, it makes sure that your voice is heard. Everything goes well until your article reaches Digg’s front page. From that point onwards your website won’t be in your control anymore, you won’t be able to open your control panel or access your files through ftp. The massive traffic coming from Digg will kill the server that has hosted your website.

So we will try to avoid this:

If the administrator of the web server is monitoring the server there is no doubt that your account will be suspended. Even if the administrator is careless, you website won’t stay alive, there is no way that the server will be able to handle such traffic. You won’t have any other alternatives but to watch the traffic get wasted and feel helpless.
