I’m writing this post because you probably have a blog and there are big chances to have the following problem: our blog is doing fine: it has a lot of visitors and you are happy but one day the blog gets blocked by the hosting company because it consumes to many server resources. It happened to me.
Usually the hosting company will recommend you to get a dedicated server but this is not very good for your budget because a dedicated server is expensive and you must learn to configure it or to pay someone.
There are 2 cheaper solutions:
- Installing the WP-Cache plugin. This will help your blog to consume less resource so you can keep your exiting shared account.
- Buy VPS Hosting. VPS Hosting technology presents multiple isolated server environments on a single physical server. Each VPS uses its own hard disk space, RAM, CPU, Dedicated IP addresses and it can be rebooted independently. Virtual Private Servers allows multiple customers to share the expense of hardware and network connections without sacrificing privacy, performance or preference. The reason why I recommend this is the Virtual Private Server cost far less than a dedicated server.
Of course the dedicated server is a good solution if you can afford it and you have the tech knowledge.
