Best droplet for webshop using Prestashop

  • Posted June 17, 2014

Hello,

I’ll kick off two webshops.

The first will only have about 100-200 visits a day and the other will have up to 500-1000 visitors a day.

Which droplet size should I choose for each?

I will use Prestashop.

I’d suggest going with a 1 GB droplet. You might be able to get away with the 512 MB, but the larger one will ensure that you can deal with any traffic spikes. If you use the 512 MB droplet, I’d recommend add a swap file:

It will give you a bit of a buffer if MySQL starts using a lot of memory.
