I run a blog that is averaging around 15 000 unique visitors a day, and well above 30 000 page loads. Now the amazing thing is that Dreamhost hasn't told me to go die yet(I guess I can thank wp-cache), but I'm fairly confident they'll tell me soon enough since I'm closing in on my daily CPU quota.
I must admit that I don't know much about hosting, it certainly isn't what I'm blogging about, so I was wondering what kind of dedicated server I'd need for a page of my size? I was thinking about going for a very basic specced server, but I honestly have no idea at all how demanding WordPress is on a server, and pre-paying a server for a few hundred dollars only to find it doesn't even come close to what I need is not something I'd like to just try..
Thanks for any assistance!
