Hello !

Couple of years ago, I owned a .io game website. which received 150k visitors a month and severed 3TB+ bandwidth. That time I hosted that site on shared hosting with Cloudflare.

Now, I gonna launch another similar site. This time not gonna use Cloudflare. Decided to go with another CDN provider.

My question is, Do I need a VPS to host that site (expecting 100k+ visitors a month) or Shared hosting enough since I use CDN ?

Thanks

I remember those scripts with flash games... Should be obsolete by now.

If you are planning on that much traffic your better off going with like a KVM VPS. If you use a shared hosting account you will start to see your site go off line for using more resources than you are given with the account.

Over 100k per month a dedicated server starts making a lot of sense to me.

Can't go wrong with a VPS.
Go with digital ocean or vultr.
I migrated my websites from shared hosting to a $10/month VPS and performance is way better.

Try VPS from legionbox and hostround as they are proven to be the best.

How many sites do you host on that VPS? How hard was it to set up?

If you only host one site on a VPS it is really easy as Digital Ocean offers a one-click install for WordPress.

If you want to host multiple sites on one droplet it will become a little more complex but can be easily done via a panel like Webmin.
You should be comfortable with using the command line, but there are tons of tutorials out there that explain everything step by step.
