  • VPS RAM vs Number of users

    Good day,

    Looking for some input. I'm against the bandwidth wall on my shared hosting company I use now. They have been great, but I'm just paying way too much at this point (40 dollars for 10gb) and hitting overages to boot. I'm trying to decide between something from (comments welcome) or a managed VPS service from either or

    Currently I'm seeing about 15 members and about 200 guests (about 2/3s are bots). I'm hoping that this will increase to about double that in the next 2 years. What kind of dedicated RAM should I need to service that kind of activity in a VPS situation? I'll be using photopost (gosh I hate it) and a few other add-ons. I'm on a shared server now, but one that has not given me ANY trouble. I'd hate to step down in performance because I did not choose a plan with enough dedicated RAM.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your shared hos is being very nice in accomodating you till now. Most probably you would need a dedicated server. A VPS is most probably not going o be enoguh. I have run a forum with 200-250 users online on VPS with 512 mb(assured) RAM but it was really slow and users were complaining before I moved to a dedi.
