    Hi there, i was driving social media traffic through bots to my site, i think at one point i hit about 1k visitors at a single time, my site isn't really heavy as i optimized it prior, images are from imgur, my site only holds text. Still it crashed the hell out of it. So i come here to ask for advise, what vps could i get at a nice price that can hold this kind of traffic, maybe 500 to 1k persons at a time on it?

    If you are thinking the site will keep growing it might be better to go ahead and get set up with a dedicated server.

    On VPS you have two options. You can go self manage and it will save you some money. Or you can go manage with cpanel and the server will be managed for you.

    I would recommend to have 2 to 3 cores and 2 to 3 gigs of ram.

    Upgrade your server panel and get some good deal and then you will easily get more visitors when your sites will have more capacity.

    Is not normal, seems that your hosting provider hardware is crap.
    Check out http://www.linuxssdvps.com/hosting/offshore-vps-hosting/ - Pure SSD drives with 3.4Ghz CPU cores and 100Mbps worldwide bandwidth .
    Their VPS are self-managed & stable , you wont regret it . They have some of the best features in the hosting industry such as 500Gbps DDOS protection + accepting bitcoin payments <3

    For Control Panel free solutions are Webmin / Webuzo / Sentora if you want paid one , go for cPanel.

    Good luck with your site !

    Right now, I'm using Digital Ocean & Basezap.
    Both of them are good, but if you need awesome support then go with basezap.
    Digital Ocean sucks in Tech Support.

    Minimum specs you require
    2GB ram
    2 cores of CPU
    100Mbps port
    good amount of BW
    Install your vps with VestaCp + php-fpm + Nginx + Varnish and you can hold upto 5k visitors at a time without any problem.

    pm me if you need any further help

    It seems to me Hostsailor.com and QHoster.com VPS deals can be suitable for your needs, the OP.
    Servers have no downtime and prices are competitive.

    Try wiredtree, you won't regret. They are fully managed so nothing to worry. They are not the cheapest but the support is fantastic to say the least.

    Service :

    When it comes to VPS, only certian players have infrastructure and capacity along with being affordable enough with 360 degrees services.

    It is very important to check if there is 24X7 service and most important a very low turn around time. BEcause you are bound to face technical issues and if the technical department resolve your issues immediately then its an experience of completely different level.

    Now such experience can be had only by a hosting company which has an inhouse dedicated Support team. So that is also a huge criteria.

    Hardware:
    A good VPS which can handle high traffic requirement like 11k, needs to be very proficient in I/O operations. Hence, it becomes obvious that you should prefer SSD. SSD are 5+ times more efficient overall than HDD. Also, other resources like RAM, CPU and Bandwidth play an important role in smooth running of a loaded VPS. Hence, RAM has to be latest configuration, CPU has to be high performance with best clock speed and Bandwidth has to be in GBPS.

    You have the above factors, you are guranteed an experience of life time.

    I can draw your attention to findmeavps.com services. They are absolutely free and helpful in comparing various vps hosts and choose the best.

    You didn't mention anything about your hardware, current setup and configuration that makes it extremely tough to give you a real answer or solution. Can you please be more precise.

    - What kind of CMS/Platform are you using?
    - Are your servers well optimized?
    - How much RAM and CPU are you currently using?

    Did you ask your host and did you do any investigation on your server so far?

    You should look for a VPS with good specification like CPU-2 , Ram -2 , Unlimited bandwidth etc.
