I'm going to be releasing a web site that might be enormous, or it might be a flop...
How can I protect against both possibilities without paying huge sums of money. I use Node for the server, and my poor little server on Digital Ocean probably couldn’t handle thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of hits.
Then again, it might be a total flop, and I don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars for server time when I probably won’t need it.
I always see these sites that get submitted to reddit, and their servers are down. It’s like, that was their chance to be huge, and they missed it.
I can pay, using ad sense for as much server time as needed, probably. Right now, I’m paying $5 a month for Digital Ocean, which is great, because I don’t really need that much space.
Is there anyway I could keep this set up, and just buy more processing power as needed?
