New member busybee100 has a start-up company selling one-off products. This means that they are constantly adding and removing items for sale, generally running with around 500 live products at any one time, each with multiple images. Due to the way WordPress creates several images of different sizes for each product they've run into trouble with the number of files being hosted and were advised by their host to move to a VPS. Taking that advice didn't work out as they quickly filled up the VPS and are now back where they started. So what's your advice? Offload the images to another service? Optimise the site so that it doesn't store as many images at any one time? Any other ideas?
Another new member is starting his hosting research and wonders what he should chose to host a Wordpress website or general hosting for apps. If he has to choose between shared hosting with NVMe SSD or a VPS with SSD which one would you suggest would perform better in terms of speed and performance? It's not a simple this-or-that answer as NVMe tends to work better with larger file sizes, and opting for a VPS introduces the extra overhead of managing the server or paying someone else to do it for him. A VPS would give more configuration flexibility but shared hosting would take most of the management burden away and allow more time to develop the site. If you put yourself in the same shoes which option would you be inclined to go for, and why?
