How to Determine my web site hosting needs - Which ISP? How much server space? etc.
Posted on 2014-02-23
I'm setting up a professional networking membership site that will be accepting payments for joining . Initially, there will be no live chats/webinars or streaming video but there will be on-line newsletters, links and blogs.
-. How do I plan/anticipate how much server power I need to run this site?
-. Should I use Azure? Amazon Web services? 1and1? Go Daddy?
-. If I have 10,000 paid members, should I plan for a worst-case scenario of 8,000 of them hitting my site at the same time?
-. How do I plan my hosting needs?
-. At this stage of my business planning cycle, I'd appreciate any advice you have.
