Minimum VPS plan for wordpress site with 100K visitor/day?

  • Posted December 7, 2014

Hi, I am not a tech person, so can you help me to choose a plan? My wordpress site will be 99% similar to this site http://themeforest.net/item/newspaper full_screen_preview/5489609. So any experienced person will get a rough idea of how much resource the site may need. So if my site get 100K visitor per day & average visit duration is 5-10 minutes, which minimum VPS plan will be perfect for me? I dont want my site to be slow.

Thanks

100k visitors * 7minutes(10 pv) = 1000k page views. That is average 20pv/sec and may spike to 100pv/sec sometime.

If you make static cache plugin enabled (take a search of wordpress plugins), and there are no many pic uploaded, I believe the $5 plan can handle it. (use Nginx instead of Apache)

But I still recommend you to buy 2 plans, 1 for Nginx 1 for Mysql. (maybe additional 1 for file upload/download). So that you can decide which server you need to upgrade when your site become slow.

well 100k + nginx + php-cgi + varnish cache, a 2 core, 2GB droplet should work fine, might well try 1 core, 1GB droplet first and see and if its to much you can snapshot it and move it to bigger plan
