10$ Hosting plan capacity

I was wondering how many hits per day/month a 10$ plan can handle.

Any experiences ?

Thanks

How many roads must a man walk on before they will call him a man?


You need to know:
a)  How much "stuff" needs to happen with each hit; and
b)  How much "stuff" your plan can handle.

Why even bother worrying about it. Start out with the $10 package and have a plan ready for when traffic/processing seems to be a concern. You can move onward then.

"Why even bother worrying about it. "

Hmmmm... maybe because if the $10 plan can't even handle the load on day-one then it would be a waste to even go there?????  ;)

The answer is definitely "it depends". Each hosting plan and each application is different. Figure out what the typical request for your app requires and then look at the legal mumbo jumbo for a specific hosting plan (they are all different). That's the only way to know for sure.

Is there any (free) tools that let me test the website capacity ?

I'd start by thoroughly checking out the hosting company. How long have they been around, do hey have great tech support, how many users do they cram on each server, do they backup your server etc. etc. Everything flows from there.

which hosting company are you using?  Many of the smaller ones will oversell servers and you will end of getting poor performance.

Looking at the legal mumbo jumbo is a way to know for sure?  Wow. BZZT. Running the site up to capacity is the only way to know for sure.  The legal mumbo jumbo is just that. Mumbo jumbo.

Microsoft has released a free web application stress tool, which will also give all kinds of other info about server capacity.

IMO: the big web-hosters are just as likely to oversell. In fact, in my experience, the big hosters are more likely to oversell.

Furthermore, if you go with a more expensive host, one that doesn't oversell; that host might just decide to drop their prices through the floor to get more customers - so you get crappy service at twice the price.

$10, not 10$.  The dollar sign goes in front of the number.
