I have a website based on WordPress. This site has 5.000 to 15.000 unique visitors per day. With my current VPS sometimes the site is a little slow because of the slow query wordpress. My VPS: 2x 2.0GHz CPU, 2048MB DDR3 RAM, without using SSD HD, nginx, varnish and memcached.

I want to buy your Cloud (4GBMemory, 2 CoreProcessor $ 40/mo) and install Nginx and Varnish… This cloud may be fine for my site?

I also need to cater to administer and update the server? I am not a systems engineer.

Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for your kind reply.

Then this service is not suitable for me that I do not have a lot of experience to management server? I pause to have some security vulnerabilities and that the server is not properly optimized. I noticed that this community there are good guides…

This is the CPU and RAM consumption of this morning. Today there are few many users. I do not have access to the old statistics.

Considering that my current VPS does not use SSD, Nginx, Varnish and Memcached…

I am sure that with Cloud 4GBMemory, 2 CoreProcessor using SSD, Nginx, Varnish and memcached, my site will have no problems.

Thank you very much.
