    Hello guys,
    I need an hosting that can support 2k online users.
    Visitors will come from a viral fb scripts, so I need an hosting who accepts that type of traffic.
    When you suggest me an hosting, please tell me also the plan. EG: not "hostgator", but "hostgator's business plan" and so on.
    Thank you in advance!

    A small VPS should do.. I hope you know a bit of server administration and can setup one.

    and btw, it that the age verification script? the viral app you are talking about?

    Thanks

    I have heavy duty servers, if you are up for a JV I can provide you complete hosting system.

    No hosting will allow you, you need a server.

    Also, are you Imraan N.?

    Thanks

    those are perhaps the best you can buy for fb. very reliable and no risk of shutdown if you host it on the elastic IP

    you need a dedicated server for that. On VPS or shared hosting you will get suspended if you make a small spike of traffic

    True that, could end up quite costly though. It would be nicer to get a SSD plan but unfortunately those are closer to $1k on Amazon

    Not true. It all comes down to how resource intensive the script is and how the script is setup.

    If the site is just static html, a 512mb VPS could handle it.

    I would recommend Digital Ocean https://www.digitalocean.com/

    To be safe I would go with their $20 plan, you can always up/down scale it automatically without deleting any data (in the same aspect as you would on EC2)

    With nginx that should easily handle 2k visitors online.

    OP feel free to PM me if you need help setting it up.
