When shopping for hosting, each plan has a different configuration of resource. This is one example plan:

  • 1 Core CPU
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 300.000 inodes
  • 30 Entry Processes
  • 30 MB/s I/O
  • 5120 IOPS

How do I calculate such plan so that I can buy a suitable one? Say I have a WordPress website that usually have 50 traffics per day, but can get up to 500 per hour. It will install several plugins. Would that be enough?

This answer in the question How to find web hosting that meets my requirements? looks promising, but it doesn't actually answer the question.

    installing word-press plugins just for plugins sake is not good. Every plugin you install on your WP site is a possible back-door to your systems and there is really no guarantees that plugins are created with any care. – Neil Meyer May 22 at 14:15
  • do you have any suggestion? If I don't need them, I wouldn't install them at the beginning – Ooker May 22 at 15:12

    500 per hour is only one every 7 seconds. You don't need a powerful server to serve 1 request every 7 seconds. – Maximillian Laumeister May 22 at 19:49

    Is this on a VPS? Looks like it. If so, you can generally start small and add more resources as you go. – Steve May 22 at 23:29
