    Hey guys,

    I need help with the different hosting solutions.

    I have a website with the following stats for the last month:
    112,000 visits
    186,295 pageviews
    Traffic mostly from US, UK and Australia.

    It's a Wordpress informational site with about:
    15 articles
    500 photos (some in High Quality)

    It runs WP Super Cache, Yoast SEO, a few other plugins and I use the Free CloudFlare.

    I also have about 10 other websites in the 20,000 to 40,000 monthly visits and many more smaller sites.

    At the moment, all my niche sites are on different shared hosting (Bluehost, Dreamhost, Hostmonster, etc.)

    I would like to move my higher traffic site because I'm getting warnings but I have no clue what to get. I don't have any network experience and want something simple.

    My questions are:

    1- What kind of hosting should I get for my Wordpress Niche sites? I have read a lot on the forum and online and it would seems to be better to go with Managed VPS because it seems simple. However, other people seem to think that Wordpress dedicated hosting is better.

    2- What are the specs I should take for a managed VPS?

    3- How many sites can I run with a Managed VPS using regular specs? Could I transfer my top 10 sites on the same Managed VPS?

    Thanks a lot for reading and I can't wait to read your answers!

    I think if you have budget issue then go for Managed VPS
    or either if you donot have budget issue then you can directly go for a dedicated server its upto how much you want to spend.

    But being a web hosting expert it is my advise make sure to buy from managed support so that you donot have unnecessary headaches of server management and you enjoy doing your blogging :)

    get one vps.. with 1 gig of ram, 45 gig space, dual core processor (2 cores), 1gbps port speed (100mbps is enough.. but if ur sites visits grows then go for higher). You can increase ran and cores anytime.. bandwidth u have to decide as i am clueless abt your sites bandwidth.

    Something like digitalocean may suit you, you create and manage your own droplets and only pay for what you use - for the smaller sites you can create smaller, cheaper droplets that cost $5 a month, for the larger you can up it to a larger droplet that costs $10-20 a month (although they are charged by the hour so you can budget say $100 a month) and if one droplet isn't being used to the full potential you can opt for a smaller

    cloudways offers managed hosting on digitalocean or amazon servers.
    They're not to pricy. I've been using them for two months now, and I'm satisfied. The best thing is they have 24/7 support.
