I want to make a new blog site with a shared hosting plan but I am afraid of number of connections can be limited on shared hosting accounts. For this case, how many connections are you allowing on your shared hosting? I can estimate if know your limitations and upgrade to a VPS when its required.

Hello Chris,

On our Shared Hosting plans, we are NOT limiting the connections.
What we do limit (and all hosting companies ) is the average usage of resources such CPU/RAM. If your website(s) start using a big amount of resources for a long period of time, we may request you to upgrade to VPS plan where you will have better performance and resources .

Best Regards,
CyberHour

CloudLinux does allow hosts to set a connection limit.
But I will elaborate:
Concurrent connections are not the number of users allowed on your site at a time. It is instead the limit for users who are attempting to connect to a PHP or Perl script. *insert limit here* concurrent connections would be more than *insert limit here* requests a second (assuming the page takes one second to load). In another way, *insert limit here* users would need to visit your site at the same moment to hit this limit.

When starting out, I wouldn't be to worried about a connection limit. The general number is around 20 concurrent connections.

RAM/CPU/Processes vary.

Hello,

To me you should not think about that, it is webhosting provider's matter to offer a good service even if that means balance load on its servers.
But let me give you an advice, if you know you'll migrate to a VPS one day for sure, you should host your website on a VPS rightaway because, when you will want ot migrate it will ask you so much work you'll have regrets.
Maybe a webmaster can confirm what i said.

Well not really , we are migrating our customers from Shared to VPS/Dedicated for Free . We understand that new projects start small and expand. We are happy to see our customer's projects are succeeding .

Now if you know that your startup request fixed amount of resources then yes you should start with VPS :)

Some shared hosting company's also limit you to a certain number of processes (Concurrent PHP scripts). If you see a company limiting this, keep in mind the average php script takes less than a second to execute. So that won't be the amount of concurrent visitors you can have. I think shared hosting is a great way to get started though. Just make sure you pick a good host. :)
