  • Looking for a host that can grow with my site

    I'm launching a WordPress site next month that I believe will grow faster than expected. I'm not sure what's the best choice for hosting. I currently have a VPS with Hostdime (who I really like as a host - they're local with killer support) and I'm not sure if that's the best route or not. My current VPS (2gb ram) has multiple failures a day with automatic restarts. It's hosting a one multisite install (with 3 active subsites, 4-5 inactive subsites and less than 100 visitors a day total on average), a second site with 60-70 visitors a day and 2 other sites that are lucky to get one visitor a day. The failures have me concerned that 1 site 300-500 members and 1000 hits a day will need a lot more resource-wise than what I have now. I don't think that there's that huge a load on it (though maybe the multisite is a resource hog?).

    So I looked at managed WP hosting, thinking a 'cloud' option may let the site grow to 500 members or so & weather traffic spikes - and then I can move it to something more permanent. So I'm really not sure which way to go - and perhaps it's because I don't understand hosting that well. A distributed grid sounds cool, but does it work in practice? Is eventually getting a dedicated server unavoidable? What the hell do sites that have a lot of members and traffic do?

    What can you say about and also SSDVPS hosting? What host is better?

    All advice will be appreciated - I'm planning on launching my site, I need to get this squared away ASAP. Thanks!

    The best thing is that I have now been using SSDVPS for the last two years and all I can say is that I am very happy with the overall service that I get.

      I'd like to express the point that has been a great experience for me.
      I did a lot of searching before I picked my hoster and this one looked to be the best pick for me.
      They offer easy setup in control panel as well and an excellent price. These guys specialize in VPSs.

        I find SSDVPS hosting to be incredibly Perfect. Never have downtime, the price is reasonable.
        Management people are also friendly, really can't ask for more. I am glad that I found this decent host.

          I would recommend SSDVPS hosting services for anyone that takes a serious interest in their site and wants an efficient and reliable web host.
          They have super-reliable, highly communicative re: any changes, and above all superb customer support. Recommended.
