    I have about the same and my dedi is slowly dying. No way a VPS can handle this unless its a static page.

    I definitely agree receiving that large amount of traffic will require a dedicated server.

    If your site is just text you should not have an issue running your site on a VPS account. I would recommend start with 1 gb ram on a managed server. Then if you need more resources its easy to upgrade your account.

    On the shared plan they might be running cloud Linux which will limit your resources you can use.



    On your issue it could be how the server is configed. What process are you using, how much ram, what type of drives are you using. Is your site text or images. If you have a full dedicated server you should have no issue unless its config wrong. or you have an outdated server with low resources

    Very surprised it even works on a shared hosting account. If that's the case and its all static content you can try a managed VPS.

    This is hard to believe. You're saying your traffic is 21,600,000 per day and your website "is working slowly" on a shared hosting account. Mate, you need an entire rack with dedicated servers with that type of traffic.

    Sorry, I did not express myself correctly. The number of visits to my site is 20-40k per say and sometimes 250 people in one time on the site. Do you think I still need dedicated server? Or VPS

    Then VPS would be enough for that traffic. If you'd ask me what hosting company I'd prefer, I'd suggest you siteground.

    Start out with a VPS and then scale if needed. No need to jump right into a dedi.

    You need a dedicated server. The VPS that you'll be requiring will cost just as much as a dedicated server. If you need more help, PM me.

    if you've little knowledge of nginx then go with VPS only! Dedicated box would be useless if you've less than 2M traffic / day i guess!

    checkout gorillaservers I stumbled upon them when researching machines that can process big data. they have enough resources on each machine to easily handle 250 req/second. if your using something like wordpress consider caching static html in compressed form and serve it up with nginx server.

    Professional adjustment is more important than server type. You have to tune and optimize your LAMP (or LEMP, better), then your site will not be "working slowly".

    i would prefer dedicate over vps, price wise you should be better off and performance wise too.

    That being said you should always optimize the server / vps, and your wordpress site to optimize it for speed and user experience.
    optimizing wordpress it self would save you some vps/dedipower. disable things like heartbeat, use caching ect ect.
    Should not hard to be find in google: optimize wordpress.
