SolX1 has around 10 standalone websites split between two managed VPS servers, each with 8 cores and 8GB memory (following some good advice on WHT back at the start of 2021). There are no issues with his current setup with everything working well, but the servers are close to their limits. He's now trying to decide between getting a dedicated server to replace the VPSs or adding another VPS and moving some of the sites to that to spread the load. The sites have high traffic with many concurrent users, but they are not resource intensive so bandwidth and disk space are not important factors. They are also independent of each other, each has its own files and database. He's more worried about the number of concurrent users the dedicated server will be able to handle. He uses Litespeed server. What would you opt for?
Selena is going to launch a new website and is hesitating over the choice of domain names between, for example, domainname.com and domain-name.com. Factors that might be considered are SEO (does the addition of a hyphen make it easier to index keywords?), human readability (do humans naturally type domain names without hyphens so adding them would make the name harder to remember and affect traffic?) and competition (is it safer to register both options, then redirect one to the other when it has been decided which will be the primary domain?). What would be your preference, either as a regular site visitor, SEO manager or developer?
