    Question High Load PHP Hosting

    Im looking for a company that can offer me super fast php hosting. It will be large loads with upto 20 php requests a second, the load is so much that i am currently running mysql on a dedicated mysql server. Any ideas ?

    Also i forgot to mention i MUST have the ability to have a custom php.ini for my user, also i would prefer directadmin over cpanel. Also my space requirements are only about 500mb

    Care to tell us more about the nature of your script; the amount of visitors, load and the bandwidth somehow do not really match up. Can you explain a bit more ?

    Its a text based game, with about 200 active players at any one time per server

    what are your bandwidth requirements ? There's tons of optimization you can do to be less dependent on db queries.

    Seems you outgrown shared-hosting; 200 connections at every single time is quite a lot for a site running on a shared hosting account (lets say, i wouldn't want to be another user on the same server). So i guess you will be looking at a dedicated server; looking at your stats i would not recommend a VPS to quickly as your IO load will be high. Why not move the site and sql to the same dedicated server?

    Sorry i didnt make it clear the mysql server is a shared dedicated mysql server, and i am trying to split my loads between shared servers, i have previously used a dedicated server from staminus but the profits i make cannot sustain it.

    Maybe look into semi-dedicated; or high-end VPS servers.

    Splitting mySQL from production web hosting in this case doesn't sound logic unless the server is next to your shared-hosting account and lets the traffic go by a secondary network. All other options would make your php script take longer to execute (time needed to connect to the sql server) and thus use more resources.

    The reason the mysql is independent is because the same db is being read / updated by multiple servers

    I think that wouldn't be a problem for non-overselling shared hosts, like medialayer, although I haven't used them.

    ben, now i replied several times, and more and more comes falling out of the closet, maybe you should try to explain more about the situation you are in; to me it seems your site simply belongs on a dedicated server. But maybe more information can give others the chance to point you in a better direction.
