When to Choose a Basic VPS Hosting Plan?
Basic VPS is the most basic form of VPS Hosting service provided by Hosting Raja. Basic VPS is mainly used by those customers who have experienced an increase in traffic to their website and a shared hosting plan isn’t able to handle the traffic. There will be limitations in shared resource eg. msql connection, mysql.
Basic VPS can be used for a website with a traffic of around 1000 users per day.
A shared hosting plan can never be an option with a website experiencing a moderate to huge traffic.
Shared Hosting plan is mainly opted by newcomers, who wants their website to be live on the internet. If you have plans to grow your website in the near future or if your website is experiencing an increase in traffic Basic VPS plan is the best option.
A shared hosting plan can sometimes be dangerous for your website. In a shared hosting plan there are hundreds of other websites on the same physical server. If few of those websites in your server consume too many resources, your website many be affected either by a downtime or a slow website speed.
What is the recommended VPS Plan ?
We suggest minimum 4GB RAM and dual core processor for any VPS hosting. Most of the modern days CMS (Content management system) needs lots of processing power and more memory for effective cache management.
When you enable cache, most of the cache are stored in the RAM memory so that it can be served quickly. So having more memory is important for your website to load faster.
When should you upgrade your VPS hosting plan ?
There are many situations where you have to upgrade your hosting plan. Eg.
If your website stops working randomly. - There are lots of reasons why website stops working, it could be due to less RAM, more number of Apache connections, high Mysql load. You can solve this problem by optimising the source code to consume less memory or by upgrading more memory.
Your Apache/Varnish cache stops - Apache and varnish’s memory consumption is always proportional to number of http connections.
Server responses slow - If server gets more request than what it can handle, the requests are queued to serve one by one. So in this case you have to upgrade your RAM and Core.
