How many visitors will my account/server be able to handle? Print

  • 21

Such questions are impossible to answer on the basis that all websites are different.

Let's consider two different types of website:

- A HTML/CSS website which is 200 KB in size.

- A WordPress PHP powered website which is 2 MB in size.

The WordPress website is going to require a lot more resources (CPU power, Bandwidth, etc) than one of the HTML/CSS website.

Even if we know the type of website, there are still too many potential variables that impact how many visitors an account/server will be able to handle.

As a general rule, make sure to cache as much content as possible, which will reduce the amount of resources required to serve the content. You can also off-load assets to third-parties. For example, instead of hosting large images locally, consider using a specialist service such as Imgur or Google Drive.

Everything is working as expected

I was looking for a simple syncthing server and didn't need anything fancy. I found Ethernet servers on server hunter and chose them because of their low price and good reviews. I had access to my server within a few minutes. It was easy for me to change the ubuntu to Centos and everything is working as expected.

Great service overall thus far

Three reasons I decided to try out the service: I heard and subsequently saw that the prices were great, it is very hard to beat those unmanaged special offer prices. I heard that the service was reliable, so far so good. It's only been a week, but I hope that it will continue to be reliable as I use it more. I heard that the support is excellent, and I have to agree. Great service overall thus far.

The networks are top of the line

Great upload and download speeds, apt-get updating is a breeze. The only mishaps was on my end, ssh had some weird buffer lag (sometimes unresponsiveness) that has to do with my connection with my isp. Just make sure your connection stable and everything should work just fine. The networks are top of the line.

Nothing but a joyful experience

Been with them for a week and the transition from old hosting to ethernetserver has been nothing but a joyful experience. Setting up new vps, networking is like a breeze. All set up by george and nothing to worry about really.
