Soon, my website will have much traffic due to an event, is there anyway or any service that will help me to handle all the traffic without my website goes down?

I'm using WordPress running on Nginx with W3 Total Cache and cloudflare.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Don't know why this would be migrated from serverfault, but, are you running a dedicated server, virtual private server or are you using shared hosting? I'm assuming one of the first two, but the short answer is upgrade your server. Add more ram, get a solid state hard drive instead of a "regular" one, get a better or more processors, etc. – Andrew Bartel Jun 10 '13 at 4:03

How about budget?

  • I think you need add more RAM.

  • Using Xcache or memcached.

  • Using s3 amazon for your static file.

For more information ask in serverfault.
