How to prepare for traffic?
I am a new DigitalOcean customer coming from a VPS for the past 20 years or so. I am really impressed with DO and love it so far. However I am a bit of a NOOB. I am not a developer but, lets say a more technically skilled digital marketer. I have a base 5.00/mo Ubuntu droplet with Ghost CMS installed and have been working on this site for the past month or so. Now I am ready to start traffic (via paid campaigns). I expect about 50k unique pageviews in the next 24-48 hours. How do I prepare? Should I upgrade my droplet already? Ghost is quite efficient on resource usage and I am using amazon s3 for CDN so I may be able to get away with the current droplet resources although not sure. I guess my question is How would you reccommend I prepare? Any alerts you reccommend? What is critical is that I dont get blocked, or throttled in my DO resources due to too much traffic. As I will be paying for the traffic if something goes down I will be burning money.
Any advice on prepping will be helpful, thanks!
