I'm using the budget Hostgator plan at the moment for my site which is about $9 a month. I've managed to arrange a mailout to a friends list of 250,000 next month and I'm pretty sure the resulting visitors would crash my current setup.
I'm just looking at the Hostgator VPS services and their $39.95 plans carries these stats...
Do you think this would be enough? I know this is a 'how long is a piece of string?' type question but would appreciate a little bit of guidance.
All my videos and pictures are served up from Amazon S3, so the actual server needs only to dish up the basic theme.
Any ideas? Thanks guys!
