A client of mine wants me to help them set up a website on WordPress. They are about to go live with a big event that will get them featured on Australian television. My question is; what is the best hosting account/provider for the purpose of NOT crashing when there is a spike in traffic (as in directly after they are being aired on TV)?
I realise that I need to make sure the site's images and videos are compressed or even hosted on YouTube (videos) to not take server space.
But is there a company that guarantees 100% up time with cPanel management.
And if so, what specific hosting plan will I need to recommend to them (dedicated server, cloud server...)?
Any help and suggestions is appreciated.
