I’m on a shared hosting plan and recently I’ve been hit with ongoing Service Temporarily Unavailable messages that visiting my own website is impossible (I only using Wordpress and I can’t even write a post).
I believe I have it optimized to the best of my abilities - with wp-cache and eliminating luxury plugins.
But I’m still hammered with the connections as my support ticket says so they throttled the site.
My site has about ~71,000 page loads and ~19,000 unique
visitors a month. My Alexa traffic rank is 54,504 with all 3 growing slightly every day.
I have no issues with disk space/bandwidth and I am not troubling to DreamHost (using less than 8% in both).
The front page averages about 18 queries whilst a single page averages about 30 queries.
I have 6 scripts that call from outside sources (advertisements, user online, stats).
What is the typical size or whatever where I should be looking into the dedicated server option? Because that’s expensive for a blog that doesn’t generate any $$$ (I have $2.00 earned over a 1 year span).
I’m looking at these 2 sources (http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze/) + (http://www.websitepulse.com/help/tools.php) but any other help would be great.
