Hi, I am wondering whether my forum VPS hosting has the right specs. In the past few months, my forum has been frequently hit by spam registrations and so much that the site goes down for a few minutes and sometimes hours. My forum has only about 7.5k members and usually less than 10 online members, around 100 guests and 20 robots at a given time. I know it's the spam bots that slow my site because usually after a downtime, I get a lot of spam registration awaiting my approval. I have StopForumSpam, Project Honey Pot, CAPTCHA , Manual Approval enabled and registration timer set to 40 seconds. My VPS server has the following specs: 60 GB Storage, 1 TB Monthly Transfer, 768 MB Guaranteed RAM, 1.5 GB Burst RAM, Hardware RAID 10 and is hosted by ServInt (their support is awesome by the way). The plan is called Essential VPS and costs me about $50/month. Just yesterday they temporarily upgraded me after a downtime to see if my forum would do better on a higher plan and the site did do much better on their higher Signature VPS plan. My question is: For a forum of my size isn't the current Essential VPS plan way too much? Or do I really need to upgrade? Need some expert opinions please. I have also attached a Google Analytics report with this post. Thanks for your help.
