I have had problems running an image gallery ever since I started getting about thousand visitors a day, all generating a number of over 400,000 server requests per day (which is when my current webhotel asks me to take measures or they suspend my website). Traffic is ~30-50 gigaByte per day… Simply just images being browsed through.
I saw no mentions about the limit of server requests before signing up there, and I haven’t exceeded gigaByte traffic. It’s just that apparently it will harm their other customers if my website generates so much high load on the server.
Since the second time I was warned after looking over all possibilities of reducing the load (i.e disable hotlinking etc.) I have currenty shut down my image gallery to think of a solution. A friend recommended that I check out DreamHost.
I realize that anything near 500,000 server requests per day is quite a lot. Is it too much on DreamHost?
