    Hello Lee,

    We have cloud of servers which should be able to handle any spike in submission volume. You are talking about 60 submissions per minute and I believe that should notbe an issue.

    Upon checking, I found that you only have a free account. Please be noted that in free account you can receive only up to 100 submission in a month. You may like to upgrade your account based on your submission requirement. Please take a look at our pricing page for more information on available plans and its submission limits: www.jotform.com/pricing

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    That's not really a spike for us. When the Facebook marketing team used JotForm on their townhall meeting with Obama to get questions from online viewers, that was a spike :) And, we handled that well. So, no need to worry.
