I have a whitehat site that gets a good amount of traffic. It is a forum based site. I use GoDaddy shared server but site traffic has picked up to the point where the site does not function properly because there are too many active connections to the database (GoDaddy does not offer unlimited connections to database). So I'm thinking about renting a dedicated server and moving my site to it. My question though is how big of a transition is that for someone? GoDaddy said they provide security for shared server users but for dedicated server users you need to do your own security. I want to make sure I understand what the changes are before I screw up my site by moving it too quickly without enough knowledge. Thanks all.
