When do you consider moving to a dedicated solution is mandotory? After 50,000 visitors a day or what?
Just thought this would be quite interesting.
If you are talking about hosting a website, this depends on too many factors to give you a number.
What do you do on this website?
Is it mostly text or images + scripts and animations?
Do you have login/sessions/multiple concurent connexions?
Is your software optimized?
5K per day may require a dedicated server for a certain site while a VPS could handle another which has 60k per day.
It all depends on the use, not the users
But on another note some questions might point it out:
Is the load on the VPS high?
Is your website loading fast or not?
Does it sometimes crash because of too many users?
Hope this helps a little!
