    Question: How many domains/websites on a VPS...

    Hello,

    I have a pretty 'beefy' VPS (Future Host 'Titanium' plan, 1Gb RAM, equal share, 750 Mb bandwidth, 50Gb disk).

    I'm using it mostly to host relatively small, low-traffic Wordpress sites. Right now, there are about 40 domains & blogs set up.

    The majority see only a few dozen visitors per day. A few have traffic around 100 visitors, and 1 or 2 may get up to 500 per day.

    My question is, what might be a comfortable limit on domains/blogs I can host before I should start thinking about adding a 2nd VPS?

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    Michael

    It depends. Once performance starts suffering, plan on moving the resource intensive blog(s) to another VPS or recommend an upgrade plan. Always keep track of your resource usage and plan for capacity.

    I would just keep an eye on load and memory usage. Remember if you start seeing load on server higher and memory maxing out, it is very easy to move a domain or two to another server very fast.

    Yes, just watch the server load and if it's getting too many requests, get another VPS (or move to a dedicated server).

    Look it all depends on capacity of VPS and infrastructure your provider is providing you.... There are many virutalization software which allow overselling of resources and thus it can affect your VPSs performance even though it is very powerful.

    So as mentioned above just monitor the loads... and act accordingly.
