    Should i swich?

    well, let me start this thread by posting the stats of the site for Jan

    i started the site 3 months ago and ever since then it's been growing, normally there're around 100 users active online. the problem right now is that because the site is running on a shared host server(hostmonster.com), so sometimes i experience slow reponse time and end up losing visitors. so i would be greatly appreciated if anyone with experience would give me any suggestion on whether i should switch to a VPS or perhaps a dedicated server?

    It's nice to see your site has managed to get such an amount of visitors in just 3 months, you must have put quite a bit of effort into that!

    It does indeed sound like you have outgrown your shared hosting environment. Based on the number of vistors you have, a VPS would be suitable. I don't think you'll need a dedicated server just yet, you should be fine with a VPS for now. You should probably look for a VPS with approximately 384mb ram, although that's just a very rough estimate.

    If you don't know how to manage your VPS, make sure to go with a managed provider, so they can set things up for you.

    that is good traffic you get in 3 months.. we have seen VPS that do 150G traffic a month with ease.

    It's not about the traffic though, it's mainly about the amount of CPU and RAM resources it requires. The site listed above should be fine on a VPS for that purpose.

    so test out a VPS from the vendor.. or ask them to give you some space to test it out or take out a monthly contract to start with. Then move up the scale as you grow bigger.
