The site generally has low traffic, but for the first time in my history as a DH customer I will be hosting some projects that may have 400 people hitting the site at the same time, with bursts like that through the day.
I know from running wordpress that it can be kind of slow sometimes, and have been thinking about moving the domain from shared hosting to a VPS. I cannot find much information anywhere on whether that would solve my potential problem (i.e. 400 visitors waiting for a page load that does not finish). This is hypothetical, but I do not want to find out the hard way how much traffic the shared server can handle or that I am pushing the shared mysql too far. Thanks for your help. CK
