Buddypress hosting & performance
Can anyone recommend a suitable host for an active Buddypress website.
I am presently on a shared hostgator account, some of my page loads are sluggish and when my users are writing on a groups activity wall, it can take anything between 2 and 10 seconds for the message to post.
I contacted hostgator support about the benefits of upgrading from a shared hosting account to (what they call) a level 3 VPN, their answer :
“…if you are considering upgrading to a VPS server because of resource usage issues, we would strongly recommend upgrading to a Level 5 VPS at minimum. Resource shortages that would generally cause the sluggishness you’ve described would be issues with available memory and/or CPU. The CPU and memory available to you with a Level 3 or Level 4 VPS are going to be very comparable to an account on our shared hosting platform.”
They also pointed me in the direction of this article:
Does anyone have any recommendations for a host, or methods of optimizing the performance of Buddypress.
