Hello SergeyGorbachov,

Thank you for your question. You are on a shared server, which limits the amount of simultaneous database connections, flushing this ('mysqladmin flush-hosts') will clear the whole list on the server.

To accomplish this, you would have to be on a VPS or Dedicated server.

I recommend limiting the amount of simultaneous connections you are making, or closing one when you open a new one.

For more detailed assistance regarding your connections, contact live tech Support, so they can review your logs and provide a specific answer:
