    Currently, I am on shared hosting with 1 website receiving 3k uniques per day will crash it down...

    I'd like to buy a vps but I want to host all my websites there about 6k uniques per day in total but I do not know what vps and how much resources will be needed as I do not want to pay for more than what I am eating.

    For experienced bhw'ers please help.

    DigitalOcean 2core, 2gRAM, 3TB Bandwidth= $20/month
    OVH Classic VPS 4vCore, 8gRAM, 10TB Bandwidth = Approx. $26/month

    Thanks

    BTW, my websites are mixed with wordpress and simple static htmls.

    Do you need access to control panel's like cPanel?
    Will you be sending emails from your server? If yes, how many per month?

    P.S : I setup my own servers and I use Digital Ocean and Amazon AWS.

    cpanel is not necessary though, not sending emails... just pure blog traffic...

    OVH may look cheesy but they use OPENVZ virtualization for "classic" servers. In layman terms, OPENVZ allows you to oversell the available system resources.

    Digital Ocean uses KVM which is a kernel based virtualization so you'll get 100% resources that are allocated for your VPS. You can also check out Linode which uses Xen that are as solid as KVM.

    Your sites will be making a lot of PHP/MySql requests, so even if you've 8GM RAM, your bottleneck will be the hard disks on OVH. I recommend you to go with DO.

    Without control panel, adding sites on your VPS can be done easily if you know how to edit a notepad file. It's that simple after you setup the server.

    ovh is not really good, they are only good to have a "clients support" wich suck !!
    more traffic doesn't mean you will need more Ram,

    i have a blog on shared host with 5k to 10k per day and i am fine

    I use OVH for several servers, and hold them in high regard.

    I think the only problem with DO is if you want to have more than one IP, unless its changed you cannot assign more than one IP to the box. Saying that, as long as you don't want to cater for Windows XP you can just use SNI for SSL if needed.
