How do I determine which hosting plan is most appropriate for me?

There are a number of variables at work when making this decision. The primary determinant of how much computing resources you’ll need to host your website adequately is how well it caches. Sites that have membership, e-commerce components or set a unique session cookie tend to require more computing resources due to having a lower cache-hit rate, forcing each page request to travel to the server. Provided your site is mostly static informational content or news stories that cache, you can get by with less hardware.

We did this blog post awhile back to help folks step through the decision tree for determining the minimal adequate plan for their hosting needs.

If you need help choosing the most appropriate plan for your situation please contact our sales staff for assistance.
