Hi @Djwiljo12

Why are you deleting posts in a thread where you're asking for help? It really limits the ability of other users to help you. But the error message you quoted tells you the rate limit you hit (too many failed authorizations), and the link in that same error message tells you when it resets (one hour). If it's failing past that point, your problem is with Siteground--and if their support is as bad as you say, that may be a good reason for you to consider using a different web host.
