I recently moved my site from Shared Hosting to VPS in Hostgator i.e. Snappy 2000.
I usually get 3-4k users per day along 9-12k visits (as per analytics).
Now, my site is quite large (https://exampundit.in)
I have tried optimization, CDN through cloudflare, DB cleanup, Image CDN through Photon. Still when traffic hits like 50+ per second (As per analytics) the ram usage shoots up and my site goes down.
Hostgator has been asking me to optimize scripts and all but I cannot do it anymore. I have done everything I could.
I really need help from you guys
