    I am planning to move from shared to VPS, because I've reached their CPU limit several times already (on "hot" hours). Also, 25 simultaneous connections is causing problems for me a lot as well, because on "hot" hours, I go beyond this limit often.

    I'm no looking for any speed improvement, because even on shared plan loading speed was okey to me.

    Basically I just need a plan which could hold at least 300 (up to 800-1000 on peak hours) users online at the same time. I don't host any videos or anything heavy, I just have a few blogs with articles and few images in each article and like this I don't consume a lot of resources anyways. But because of a high traffic, I need to move from a shared plan. Even with a shared plan I had no problems with ~200-250 users online at the same time and getting around 5000-8000 unique visits each day, so I don't think I need to order the best VPS plan.

    I'm thinking about their new "snappy 1000". It has 1GB of RAM, 1 core CPU, 60GB of storage (which is more than I need) and 1TB of bandwidth (I use now around 150-300GB each month, so more than I need as well).

    Anyone here tried their new VPS that are now called "snappy"? Anyone here moved from shared to one of their snappy plans?

    You can buy webhosting from me @ NexHost.net

    I'll allow you to use 100% CPU, Infact I allow most of my customers to do so upon request.

    Connections are unlimited W/ me also :)

    If you want 800-1000 page loads per second at peak hours you need a very high end VPS with nginx+dedicated mysql server with aggressive caching and optimized queries. If you just need 1000 users on at the same time (entirely different than loads/sec) then you could probably get away with a 4-8gb vps

    Also be sure to use nginx, percona DB, php-fpm and APC along with monitoring tools like percona cloud or vividcortex. It will allow you to find harmful queries that can be optimized.

    If you get 1000 pages per second, you should be able to afford a dedicated server. There is no comparison, the performance is overwhelmingly higher in a dedicated machine.

    a dedicated server would be better but a vps might be cheaper.
