Hi there,

This really depends on a lot of factors, as each website might have different resource consumption. I could suggest starting with the following documentation that covers some of the basics on which plan to choose initially:

After that, I would suggest running some load tests to figure out how much traffic your website is able to handle on the plan that you’ve selected:

The load test information should be able to tell you what services might be the bottleneck so you can focus on that and optimize further.

For example, if you notice that your MySQL service is crashing, you could follow the steps here and try to tweak it for better performance and so on:

Hope that this helps!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Best,

Bobby
