In a few weeks I will be launching a website/new product with a partner in a niche they specialise in...
Now I have a hostgator package that currently hosts a bunch of my domains.... So I was wondering how that server/account will affect my site launch if we have plenty of traffic coming in for the launch?
We are looking hit 20k-50k visitors for the launch with the lists we are building and social media presence. This figure is our low-medium estimate.
Now I'm not too sure if this is a lot of traffic or what's considered as a lot of traffic, but I want to know would my hostgator account withstand this many visitors at one time?
I've heard of servers crashing and not working for people during a launch. Like i said, I'm not too technical... I'd like to know some more information so we can reach the most amount of people when we do go live and send out mail and promo.
