    I have about 20 sites, running on WP, with 100k-300k traffic on each on them. Using supercache, and Cloudflare. I am currently running on dedicated with Hostgator, however I am planning to cut cost, and wondering if there is any another provider that can provide the same service at a more affordable price?

    My running processes is often maxed out, as traffic peak can hit 300 visitors at one go, as per LIVE analytics. (20 multiply by 300 = 6000)

    Preferably a host which many of you uses with good reviews.

    i use OVH for my high traffic sites i think it is the best seller for dedicated servers

    and i think hostthename VPS is not enought for your traffic you need way more RAM and CPU, and you need to a good config cause wordpress is hitting your DB hard with that kind of traffic

    Would prefer a fully-managed one.

    I have a good range of dedicated servers as well as high tier VPS as well. The one that is listed on BST sales thread is Level 3 and based on your requirement, Level 6-7 VPS would be perfect for you.

    You can checkout the all the levels over here:

    Hey ugjunk, great to have you reply over here :)

    Any discount coupons for VPS level 6?

    Also, I have added you in skype, have some questions, and I might purchase immediately after that.

    If you have an active 6000 people at one time, a VPS would destroy you.

    You need to optimize, but in the mean time you could look at dedicated servers from OVH (keep in mind the servers are in france) or get a cloud based solution with timed solutions and automatic resource propagation. So if for example you have 6000 at any time at 3pm and requires 5ghz + 8 gigs of ram, but at 4am its 3000 and only requires 2.5ghz + 4 gigs of ram the cloud server would scale down automatically saving you money. If it spikes during any time, the resource load would automatically increase to accommodate the stress.

    I can't recommend any cloud providers as they all offer different features and have different thoughts on what "cloud" computing is. Check out webhostingtalk.com for cloud providers and massive discounts.



    When you can, optimize! Find slow queries, fix repetitive tasks and also change your web stack. Apache itself is not very optimized. If you can, try switching to something such as nginx, litespeed, lighttpd, cherokee ( http://www.cherokee-project.com/ ) or another httpd server.
