    Hi, i need a good advice from expert pepole here on bhw.
    I have something like 20k daily users, but i think i'm going to be always more than that.
    Now i'm on a shared hosting, but i will need better than that.
    So can someone telle me if i need a vps or a dedi?
    I do not use db, no blog, the most part is php script.
    What is the better solution to not have problem because of the traffic?
    Thanks :)

    I believe a VPS with over 1gig of RAM would be sufficient for this. Since you arn't using any CPU intensive scripts.

    I would put that in cloud vps, optimize and cache most popular pages. I would also run gtmetrix.com on that site

    You should be able to find out from your current host how much bandwidth you are using by looking at the stats.
