Question

DO for large website?

Hi,

I run a large website with about 700,000 visitors, 7,000,000 pageviews and 4 TB of traffic recorded during our busiest month ever.

Do you think DO is suitable for a site like this? If yes, which plan would you recommend. We’re currently with Hostagor Pro dedicated server (http://www.hostgator.com/dedicated).

Thanks in advance!

@gagadaily: Unfortunately we are an unmanaged VPS provider and do not provide installation services. <br> <br>@Leckoren: http://wiki.nginx.org/NginxHttpUpstreamModule#ip_hash ;)

@gagadaily I have just made this setup my self, and it works well, but note that if you website uses the PHP SESSION var, you will need to do extra setup or put the session data in the mysql server. <br> <br>I am right now writing a DO Tutorial on this setup as I have seen none that explain it well or how I like it done, :)

Thanks for the replies everyone. <br> <br>@kamal Is it possible for DO support to set that up for me (at an extra cost, of course)? I’m new to this and would probably not be able to do it on my own.
