anyone here run high traffic site on virtual?
looking for anyone who does, and what host you use.
been looking at medialayer's application hosting
I've seen people run sites up to 5 million hits on a shared hosting provider for <15 a month. It all depends on your code -- if it's optimized well (and cached) you can pump a lot of traffic.
If it's a horrible codebase, you'll be sunk after a few thousand uniques.
— For businesses with more important things to do than worry about their hosting.
Agreed. Rather large sites can easily be run in a shared environment. However, items such as a database backend and improper code can quickly reduce how far you make it. The key, as David said, is to concentrate on quality rather than quanity or speed when it comes to how your website functions. It's also a good idea to try and avoid known oversellers where the server may be more crowded than usual.
What do you consider "high traffic," and what script are you using?
Not all traffic is equal.

above posters suggest that virtual = shared hosting; this is not the case, shared-hosting could be run at a virtual environment like a VPS but could also be run on a dedicated server.
To answer the OP's post i would not use any Virtual hosting for a high trafic site, unless your virtual package has plenty of resources and is not in high demand of disk IO.
In my opinion you better look at a dedicated server if you are really running a high-traffic site or a semi-dedicated server with lots of resources.
