And my 2nd question is

I want to know what can i do what google suddenly starts sending a huge amount of traffic and the server gets down

As it is happend with me right now and now my site is out of google

I am hopefull google will get me back in next update but there is a doubt as well so im not upgrading the server

Well the question i want to ask is what can i do in this time when i have ordered a new server ( mostly takes 24 -48 Hours) so that google dont penalize should i suspend the site or what >>?

Are you sure it was Google Search traffic that crashed your server? And if you are sure, can you see what search terms you suddenly started getting so much traffic for?

When your server goes down, you are temporarily out of the index until googlebot confirms that your server is dependable again - that's not a penalty. What you do is up to you, but if you are understanding the situation correctly I'd say a server change is the best idea. You can return a 503 status until the files are in their new home.

All I can say is the longer you wait the slower your recovery can be. a lot depends on your history, how frequently googlebot has been spidering and so on. If you can get back online stably in 48-72 hours, that would be best.

Think more like Google does - they don't want to give their users a poor experience. But they do want to give them the best sites they can. If Google decided your site should get lots of traffic, there's something here that they liked.

I suggest you communicate through the "Reconsideration Request" in your Webmaster Tools account as soon as you know you are online and stable again.
