    What are some good hosting companies that can handle 60 million visitors a month? Say the page you use is only 2kb, would hostgator get pissed and suspend your account if you were getting 2 million hits a day, even if each page load only equated to, say, 2kb?

    I mean wouldn't 120GB of bandwith be enough? Or would just the shear number of visitors, however small the page is, make them complain? I would think 1 TB would be MORE than plenty for one month's worth.

    I know H0stgat0r says unlimited, but most of us know that's bullshit... I wonder if they would get pissed at 60 million visitors per month, even though each visitor only uses up 2kb?

    Can you guys throw out some good hosting providers who could handle 2 million 2kb hits per day without complaining, crashing, or canceling the hosting account?

    Seriously guys? 30 views and not even a response? This shouldn't be too difficult a question for some of you...

    is a hard question to me, dude. I have to fight every single month with different hosts because they never provide the service they offer. Sad but true.

    I'm looking now references of HostSo.com, anybody know something about this company?

    If you have 2M visitors a day, you will make enough to get a dedicated server... I am with SingleHop and I am happy so far(well, over a year).

    Yep Bro, for that kind of traffic you should go with a dedicated server. Or at least try a VPS with a good bandwidth to use.
    Otherwise, hosts will kick you website, I was getting a hard time from hosts 'till got a VPS and a Dedi, and my traffic not that big as yours.

    Say I get a dedicated server from Host Gator, will they give me a hard time with 2 million visitors per day even though I'm paying for a dedicated server?

    Sorry everyone, but multiquote isn't working properly for me, so I'll have to be a little repetitive...

    Cagefighter- To handle 2 million visitors per day, is there a certain amount of RAM or a certain sized hard drive that my dedicated server(s) will need? I figure I'll need 1TB of bandwith per month, and I probably don't even need a TB if each page load is 2KB, but I never understood how much RAM or how big a hard drive I would need.

    In a situation where you get 2+ million visitors a day, it's not the bandwidth usage you have to worry about, it's the sheer volume of requests coming into the server and the power needed to process those requests.

    You'd be well advised to use something like a dedicated server from a company that provided gigabit access (1000+ mbps) rather than lower volume bandwidth like 10mbps or 100mbps.

    Look into a server from a company like 10tb.com that provides wide open pipes and powerful servers that can handle all those requests and the processor power to do them.

    Month to date: 371877219

    Per day on avg about 18-20 Million
    However last week was so Dead guessing the holidays..

    bout a 60% drop but today my numbers are looking better

    11681908 so far at 8:30 EST time

    Been growing and rackspace support guys are awesome!

    My only advise to you with ur volume
    is negotiate! They will try and crush you with their prices

    But i promise you ive used everything from hostgator, netwisp, ace-net, eyow, webhost4life, and some others i cant even think of and even some Chinese servers i cant ever remember the names.

    Rackspace has been the best for me with the volume.

    They used to host youtube before google bought them, at least thats what their sales team told me when i asked if they can handle the volume.

    Any how good luck!

    Just read your post about the servers and ram

    I have 3 servers with them all connected with a Load Balancer

    The 1st server is quad core 500 gb hd, and to be honest have no clue how much ram guessing 4-8 the second 2 are smaller servers dual core, 250gb hd ram about the same.

    Gogobotto mentioned gigabit access (1000+ mbps) rather than lower volume bandwidth like 10mbps or 100mbps. Can rackspace do that? Do you use gigbit access yourself?

    If you couldn't already tell, I'm pretty new to the technicalities of high volume hosting, so thanks for baring with me.

    What is the hard drive needed for? Also, what is the RAM needed for?

    It seems to me the only things I need is a lot of is bandwith and gigabit access since my web page is only 2-3kb. Am I mistaken?

    You've been extremely helpful btw, I really appreciate your help.

    Rackspace can definitely do it. They are the Mercedes of hosting.

    100% Go Dedicated with Firehost. They focus on secure scalable hosting environments. They host some major fortune 500s and companies like Infusionsoft and other large marketing services. The Support from these guys is insane. Anything goes wrong or any questions you have MIT grads working on it. I HIGHLY Recommend them, and let me tell you.. I have been with Rackspace, Peer1, MediaTemple, HostGator etc. Nothing Compares when it comes to scalability/load balancing and security. However you will pay for this.. They are more expensive than a standard host but it's well worth the cost with the managed support. They also have great VPS plans. Check them out when looking.
