    Have you survived a digg or have a high traffic WP blog?

    I am looking to start a new blog, now this will be a busy high traffic one in no time but am worried about the hosting as WP can take up some resources..

    So I am wondering who here has a high traffic blog (5k+ a day) or has survived a digg and what host you use?

    *I do have my own dedicated server right now but it has 4 high traffic sites on it already so don't want to add to it, and apart from getting the same server (which I pay $400 a month for), I am looking for a cheaper alternative for my new project.*

    Thanks

    I'd get a VPS, and make sure it's a decent one, which should cost 1/4 of your current server or even less, depending on your needs. Also, run wpcache and don't use pointless addons that are badly built.

    Have you looked into what some places call Semi Dedicated hosting? Basically Shared hosting on a more powerful server and about 1/10th of the users per server. It seems to work really well for high traffic sites.
