Hi all! I have a Virtual Private Server hosted by GoDaddy. It's pretty cheap, and it's not that bad really.

It runs Red Hat Fedora Core 7, and has:
10GB space
500GB Bandwidth
256mb ram (1GB Bursted)

Assume for a second that i'll be looking to run a blog from it, so nothing too heavy, although there will be a database obviously.

Will it survive getting dugg? Or will it die painfully and quickly?

How much can I expect from this Virtual Server before it dies? 100 views at any one time? 500? 1,000? 10,000 a week?

I have no idea at what point servers can no longer handle the strain before the page stops loading for visitors, so i'd be grateful for your opinions on this :KS

No1 can know it if you dont put the source code of the page here.Do you use caching, how many php queries do you use at that page (and mysql) etc etc.For server side we have to see config files etc : )
