A project can be prevented from running for a few different reasons that are either related to something technical or our Terms of Service, or both.
Project isn't running: You have used all of your project hours for the month
If someone visits your app after you have run out of project hours for the month, they will see a glitchy graphic and a message that says, “Oops! This project isn’t running”.
Project is suspended for a technical reason
Here are some common reasons why a project would be suspended for a technical reason:
- Hitting the project disk space limit or "Preparing Error".
- Installing node modules that push your project past the 1GB limit.
- Surpassing any other of our technical restrictions.
- If your project is suspended for any of these reasons, please contact us! In many cases, we can lift the suspension for you.
