    Setting the limits - 60,000 unique?

    60,000 unique visitors per month on standard shared?

    I have one user who has a very busy main website and vb bulletin board. What do you consider excess usage unique visitors wise. I am very lenient on cpu+mem % usage. It has been at this stage a few months now and I think this could be pushing it a little.

    High trafficked site that one. Our old gaming site had a little over 45-50k unique hits, and site started to get really slow, graphic hanged etc. And out host in the end "kicked" us out of shared hosting.
    But they offered a rather nicely VPS similar account instead. Was more dedicated RAM, CPU etc for better resource handling. But site was a little more graphical site. So if your hostee is more of less of mainly text, maybe it can handle more. But all comes down to mySQL connections I think maybe. If he has tons of people replying to posts at same time on the forum, then maybe it can be a little bad.

    Can you calculate what its actually costing you to provide this client with their service?
    IMHO, if its no longer profitable (with your desired margin) then there is a business case for changing the deal.

    60-100 users on the static html website and 75-100 on the bbs constantly.
