Worpdress website getting crashed whne visitor load increases

We have a simple word press website having articles and some videos , though we have enough bandwidth with 2GB RAM, whenever real time traffic reaches around 1500 visitors website get crashed and doesn’t load. Please help if someone can test it: Is this issue with word press or server related?

You need to make sure that your website is well optimised:

  • Remove any plugins that are not being used
  • Try to reduce the number of requests that you have for each page
  • Use good website and server caching
  • Maybe implement a CDN solution as well

Of course adding some additional RAM might still be beneficial.

Those are just some basic suggestions.

I am using Centos web panel, though it is not user friendly as Control Panel. My wordpress websites also get down suddenly and not log record are displayed. I have to restart the server in every 3-4 days.
