How much activity can XF handle on a shared server?

Prior to today, my activity peaked each day with between 30 - 50 concurrent users. My site never reached 60 users online at the same time.

Yesterday we published an official interview, it was picked up by a few sources and we have had over 100 concurrent users online for most of the day. Right now we have 70 online. I am on a shared server and everything seems to be running ok.

I wanted to ask the community two questions:

- At what point do you feel it is necessary to move from a shared environment to VPS?

- What is the most activity a XF site has on a shared server, where the page load times seem ok?

It depends on the server configuration and specification, the number of hosted domains, how busy they are, etc.

There is no hard or fast answer to the question.
