Best hosting for discourse?


(Jay Abie) #1

Hello,

I’m here to ask about best hosting I can host my discourse community on.
a hosting can handle 10,000 daily visits as users and price range from $20 - 25/Mo. with good storage space 50Gb gonna be good.

Please advice me.

Thanks.


OVH VPS CLOUD - Any advice before i start?

Either www.discoursehosting.com or self-host on a VPS.

Thanks for your reply, the hosting is good but the offered storage is small for my budget , any other options ?


(Felix Freiberger) #4

Within that budget, you probably won’t find a better managed hosting provider, so you will most likely have to go for…


(Jay Abie) #5

That is fine, i didn’t mention anything about managed so that is fine, as long as i have the storage i want as indicated in my post with ability to handle that amount of visitors daily.
( 10,000 visitor.).

Any ideas for VPS with these specifications?

Thanks.

You can start with a $20/month digital ocean droplet. You might need to bump it up to a $40 if things get slow.


(Jay Abie) #7

Thanks Jay,

The $20 is good fits with my budget, but can this plan handle that number of visitors i mentioned ? or this depends on other factors ?

If storage is your bottleneck, you might also consider using Amazon S3 storage to complement a VPS with less storage. Discourse cones with built in support for storing user uploads on S3.

You could check out : Pricing - UpCloud

They have awesome performance, good support.

Only Downside: No DDoS Protection, YET (Its on the roadmap)

Or in germany: Cheap Windows & Linux VPS Hosting at an affordable price - Contabo.com

^^Dont know details about them though, but WITH DDoS Protection.

That is clear enough, do you have any ideas about scaleway ?
they have:
8 Dedicated x86 64bit Cores
16GB Memory
50GB SSD Disk

I’m good with the storage, but can these computing resources handle the 10,000 visits everyday ?

thanks


(Jay Abie) #11

i will have look on these, Thanks A lot.


(Christoph) #12

Uhm, what?? They are offering 4 Cores, 12 GB RAM (sic!) and 300GB SSD storage for 9 EUR per month?? Sounds too good to be true, TBH.


(Steven-Anthony Winderlich) #13

I heard that yesterday already but its true :slight_smile:


(Christoph) #14

Are you using one of their plans? If so, please report your experience (perhaps start a new topic, like there is one for other providers).


(Steven-Anthony Winderlich) #15

I dont have one of their plans but i know someone on Discord who has their 8 bucks a month plan.

He never had severe issues once a downtime that was critical and unplanned which he got informed about right after it happened.


(Jay Abie) #16

@tophee please tell me if those computing resources are able to handle the 10,000 visits everyday from scaleway.

8 Dedicated x86 64bit Cores
16GB Memory
50GB SSD Disk
