i was running a nuke site with xforum. i got about 70 user online one time, 2000visitor and 100k pageview/day until my shared acc suspended because excessive system resource usage, that my host told me. is there any resource issue for shared hosting if google spider my site (i have 6000 php mysql driven pages)
my problem is should i stay with shared or i must switch to vds? i use 30gb bw each month
For VDS, i found great comment for vpscolo and servint here. for shared i found hostgator, p4host and hostrocket. anyone has suggestion? my budget is about 20$-30$.
Prob someone will sponsor pr5 site? with link on all page for exchange
I would move to VPS if I was you, you dont want another shared host suspending your site again soon, or even when it grows more.
You will lose members and people wont be happy that it happened twice.
A VPS does cost more though but if your site if going to be growing, it will need more resources and shared hosts will stop taking you if you are using too much.
If you put ads on the site that should cover your hosting costs
Even text links if its pr5 and you have so many pages/visitors
But it might still be using too many resources for the site if he was kicked off a shared server for using too many resources.
If you let the host know first if you are going with a reseller account it should be ok.
Just make sure they wont kick you off in a month or two and they have the resources to cope with your site
I would look at something like moving to a more efficient Nuke program like cpgnuke, I ported over to iti, it is about 4-6 faster than nukephp ( if you are using postnuke I do not know what to tell you, since I do not use it), you can also cut down on some unused queries on nuke and phpbb forum ( I am assuming that is what you are using since it is ported for nuke & postnuke)
You might also want to try something like jpcache, cache your home page for like 5-10-15 minutes, or other pages where the content does not change every minute of so depending on what you have going on, if you go VPS you can also use a php accelerator like mmcache to drop you load down.
Maybe even prune out old stories and or old postson the forum. On PHPbb you limit the number of sessions google can take up
I would also make sure you are using caching on your queries also, in the my.conf (but you will not be able to know in shared hosting).
You really need to jump into the $40-$50 ish price range for VPS.
I highly recommend VPSColo, they are great. I am with them currently, I like to be able to add memory or cpu resources to my plan.
