Hi there @diveshjain25,

Every website is different and has different resource requirements.

The best way to find out which server would be suitable for your needs is to deploy your website and then run some load tests. For example, you could start with a smaller server and upgrade gradually as you run your tests.

To get started with load tests I would recommend the following tutorial:

This will help you figure out if your website needs more RAM or if it consumes more CPU so that you could then go for a Memory-optimized plan or CPU-optimized plan.

Also if you can optimize your website and cache your content with a plugin and a CDN like Cloudflare, you should be able to handle a hundred or so concurrent users browsing around on a smaller plan.

Regards, Bobby

Thanks for the help👍

What other information you need? Because I am little bit confused to pick the plan so it will be helpful if you can help us!
