    You might want to look at VPS hosting or go straight to dedicated if your site is growing quickly.

    75k - 100k visitors a month is too many for shared hosting.

    I had to jump from shared when my site hit around 30,000 visitors a month, to a VPS.

    And then I needed to move again, to a dedicated server when it hit 250,000 - 500,000 visitors a month.

    A lot of this stuff really comes down to the resources you're using - shared hosting can't deliver the resources your site needs because it's spread across hundreds of other sites.

    If your site is run on Wordpress and you've got a bunch of plugins installed, then it's gonna need a fairly high amount of resources. If it's a static HTML site then it'll use a lot less.

    With VPS, you're still sharing resources with other sites but you're guaranteed a specific amount of RAM and a specific number of cores.

    Before you jump ship ask Hostgator what kind of resources your site is using, find out how much RAM you need and the number of cores. Most likely you won't need that much, just a guaranteed slice.

      Well said Micahel cause the more traffic you get to your website the bigger your hosting plan so my fellow warriors rightfully said VPS hosting is the way to go buddy.

    Heard awesome things about SiteGround. I am happy with Krystal, a UK company. With a basic package - about 15 USD a month depending on the currency exchange fluctuations - they did a fine job handling my guest posting blitz over the past month. Guest posted on a big time blog with 80,000 subscriber email list on Tuesday and no hiccups, slow down or down time.

    But with those numbers, looks like it may be a VPS thing.

    Which will not be cheap per se, but something you will need to invest in as your website grows.

      I think it's good for most, but my friend was with them (dedicated server), his site gets millions of visitors a month and the server was struggling to cope.

        Siteground is good, but once you grow more you need to move on

    I am happy with Cloudways managed hosting. They are like a middleman, the site is actually hosted on Digital Ocean, and they manage it, and provide an interface for you to control it.

    I'd recommend you to use hosting services from hostround.com as their plans are full-featured and servers are solid and responsive around the clock.
    There is no downtime on their servers.

    Siteground and Hostround also work great for you. You can also go with Dreamhost as well. Excellent hosting company.

    Some budget web hosts are as good as that VPS hosting deal you were looking at. Web business idea you have in mind doesn't need a dedicated hosting yet. You can host it on a shared hosting first and make the switch.

    the words 'good' and 'cheap' never belong in the same sentence unless that sentence is, as follows: "It is never a good thing to look for cheap services if you depend on them for the growth and security of your online business."

    If you approach things with a pauper's mindset, there's a good chance that you will end up a pauper.

    Just sayin' . . . . . .

    If you only have static files I would recommend AWS Cloudfront because you only have to pay for the traffic. If you have dynamic content you need a server to run the server side code. This can be on shared host or a VPS. As you can see shared hosting has limitations. It can be still ok if you can generate static content and upload it to AWS so your shared host won't get any traffic.
    BTW: What do you use, wordpress?

    I'd recommend you use VPS deals from time-tested companies, I mean hostwinds.com and vpsfront.com, their servers are solid and prices are low.
    Support is active and helpful around the clock.

    Dang I have Host Gator I hope I don't have that problem, I don't even knowhow to see how manypeople see my site a month, I don't really care though I just want to see the money roll in on clickbank... I don't even know how I got my site started I can't even imagine switching hosting companies that sounds scary, you can't upgrade in HostGator to a more powerful plan or something? 500k visitors a month? Are you making millions or what?

    Wait, John Chow uses Host Gator and he gets over 250k visitors a month, probably way more than that... 20 visitors and it crashes? That doesn't sound right...
