We need to choose a Linux VPS depending upon the traffic your website gonna receive. Here is the link where I brought my VPS from:

  • Income Traffic 0-750 views/day: Plan 1
  • Income Traffic 750-2k views/day: Plan 2
  • Also, Income Traffic 2k-5k views/day: Plan 3
  • And Income Traffic 5k+ views/day: I request you to switch VPS provider since I don’t recommend RamNode VPS for more than 5k views/day, reason is they only provide 1GB connection speed. How To Host Your WordPress Website On Linux.
