Server Optimization

Hello, Digital Ocean team. I just migrated my blog to the digital ocean from NameCheap. Previously it was hosted at dedicated server 8gb and 4 CPU. It was capable of handling 2500 online visitors at a time. Then also 30% of CPU and RAM was used. Due to the digital ocean scalable feature, I migrated to here. Now I am using 8gb 4 CPU dedicated droplet. when it reaches 100 visitors at a time my site is down and loading very slowly many times in a minute. So what could be the reason? Please let me know.
It won’t be the DDoS problem because my CPU and RAM are free.
Please tell me a complete solution else I migrate to my previous host.

It sounds like that you are hitting your max server connections for your webserver. For example if you are using Apache2 you would need to adjust your ServerLimit.

If you share the exact software stack that you have installed on your server, I could try to give you some suggestions for possible optimizations.
