Very useful set of slides – In my IT work we are dealing with servers for a FTSE 100 company – I dont think we will have an issue with their server load for many months to come thanks for the useful information – As for my photography site and its 400 hits a day …..
Often people with ‘small’ sites tend to overlook the importance of server load, especially on shared hosting.
Most sites will trundle along fine, but I often come across sites where the server just doesn’t have enough resources, so the DB falls over.
Always odd, that site admins try to save a few bucks by going shared hosting, when having a proper server with ample resources will increase your business tenfold by not contributing to bounce rate.
Server speed is going to become more and more important. I’m looking into dedicated hosting rather than shared hosting but just can’t justify the price for such a small site. However, after reading these posts I’m starting to think that maybe it is worth it!
James: Have you looked into Cisco’s dedicated hosting service? It’s pretty good bang for buck in the way of smaller sites.
