Shifting from your existing Hosting Comapny

Apr 15 by jayzee 1 flag
Hi i have been operating my wordpress blog site (fontblog.org) since 2014 on a shared hosting account however with increase in traffic i was asked to upgrade to a VPS server as my site was using too much of system resources. I was advised for a VPS which i had no idea of, currently after switching since Feb 2016 i have been encountering regular down times from my hosting company which is badly affecting my site traffic.

I still have a doubt that was i advised properly. My site stats are given below:
- Used storage : 3 GB (out of 10GB)
- Bandwidth usage : 50 GB (monthly)
- Only 1 MySQL account with wordpress running on it
- Monthly visitors 100,000
- Sever Down time was 70%

can you advise what should i do as i want to change my existing host and i am confused for which hosting (shared or vps) should i go for and what will be the best affordable host to manage it. Currently i am paying $14/month for my services.

Yeah, this isn't much. You can get away with shared hosting, no problem.

I would get with the sales team on live chat or phone to confirm that you won't "violate" their shared hosting with your current usage ))

Most of the companies prefer no traffic 1 page wordpress blog as their ideal shared customer, so they use single machine for about 2500 accounts. You just need the hosting provider that has less account on the server and target towards as they call it "business shared hosting". I'd start with Inmotion Hosting.

Hope this helps.

To get rid of down time, you should move to Cloud VPS that's the best solution for those websites that experience a large amount of traffic and due to it they have to face down time usually. Although shared hosting is affordable but it cannot handle much traffic and then you'll face the same issue- Down times. Cloud VPS is quite expensive from the traditional VPS but it's worth to use for and the most affordable host for it is ZNetlive.
