    * is vps enough for my sites or dedicated is necessary?

    Hello everybody,

    i have 14 websites. i think to move my sites vps OR dedicated server. But i am not sure. i have this sites:

    1st site: 6k unique/day + 150GB bw/month + 500mb web disk
    2nd site: 11k unique/day (5k vbulletin page+6k other page) + 150gb bw/month + 500 mb webdisk
    3th site: 1k unique/day + 30gb bw/month + 200 mb web disk
    4th site: 1k unique/day + 10 gb bw/month + 200 mb web disk

    Other sites: Very small sites. For example unique:30/day Bw is under the 1 gb.

    Vps is enough for my sites? If it is enough may i buy which vps server properties?

    May i buy dedicated for my sites? if yes may i buy which dedicated server properties?

    << snipped >>

    in my opinion, if your sites is rising, you need good dedicated server

    If your sites are static-pages, a vps might be ok. But if you have a lot of SQL, such as vbulletin, a vps might be too slow.

    I think a vps for $50-$70 can do good job rather than dedi of same price.

    Bear in mind theres a big difference in the hardware that VPS providers use. A quality VPS can provide better "bang for buck" than a Dedicated Server.

    i.e. A lot of budget VPS providers stick 20 VPS on a low end Dual Core box with 4GB Ram, which is OK. On the other hand there are providers who guarantee a much lower ratio, i.e 10-20 VPS per node on a 4 or 8 cpu/core system.

    600k page views per month isn't too much.

    I'm currently getting 2+ million (on mostly PHP/MySQL intensive sites) and am running fine on a 448 Mb RAM VPS.

    Although if you do plan getting more sites and if you see your site's growth rising quickly, a dedicated may be a good plan.

    If you have a lot of database-driven pages (e.g. forums) then you need to be careful comparing VPS and dedicated. We've moved some big forums off cheap dedicated servers with only a single 7200 RPM drive onto a VPS with the same amount of RAM and a (shared) RAID 10 10k SAS array and the performance improved massively.

    We have sites on VPSs that have taken substatial Digg attacks too, which is cool as they have a low level of backround traffic and then get large peaks of traffic every few weeks when they get on Digg, BBC News and other sites.

    It all depends on the spec of the dedicated and the spec of the VPS host server, and the number of VPSs you might be sharing with. As has been already said, at the same price point the VPS could potentially provide better performance and reliability as you don't get enterprise-class dedicated servers with RAID arrays, 8 CPU cores and redundant power and fans on cheap dedicated servers.

    High end VPS with lots of RAM and a powerful CPU or medium grade dedicated box.

    Node like Dual Quad Xeon, 8-16 gb ram & you get a top end VPS from it, will probably give you much better performance than dedicated server in same price. Yes! It also depends on the VPS companies how are they managing their node.

    You definately need a strong dedicated server for all these.
