Large Wordpress website slow - I need advise on hosting and cloud

    Hi Folks,


    Can somebody please lend some advise regarding hosting and speed


    I have a large wordpress website with around 100,000 pages
    Disk space on server: 5GB
    Mysql space: 300Mb


    My host said a large number of posts will slow down the site which is understandable. I currently use shared hosting and it's slow as a turtle. Some folks suggested I get a dedicated server but it's off my budget to be honest.


    I've optimized the site with Cache and compression + plus other optimizations quite a bit.


    I would like to know if I can host my website in the "cloud" which seems to be a cheaper option. Something like Amazon cloud ?


    Is this possible ? Will hosting on the cloud speed my site up and remove the load from the shared server ?


    Also most of the disk space is used up by images. Is it possible to have the images hosted on a "cloud server" and remove them from my shared hosting server to free up disk space ?


    Finally my host Hostgator said "that in most cases the current production version of Mysql on our shared servers will have significant delays querying databases with over 100MB of data"


    If someone could please advise what would be the best path to take ( cost effective ), I'd really appreciate it!


    Thank you

    does your site loads scripts/files from external sources?

    i would highly recommend liquidweb. i run all my sites with them for one reason: the service. they will spend as much time as you need to work through issues, and come up with the best setup for your needs. and they wont charge you for it like iweb will, for example.

    I have a similar question, but it deals with a type of site I'm marketing for someone, it relies on user generated content.

    How expensive exactly is hosting? Like for say 5,000,000 basic web pages, nothing fancy, just pictures, some text, etc. I know he is taking care of that, but not sure if I want a share into what he has if the hosting is not going to allow for a return...

    If it pays off get a dedicated, its around 150$/month. I am very happy with cybervurx.

    A VPS would probably be your best bet. Would be around $20-$30 a month. What is your budget?

    If you do not want to get dedicated server then get a VPS. cheap and reliable. Shared hosting is only good for small website.
