    “How to choose the best joomla hosting for my traffic site?”, “How to choose the best joomla hosting for personal page?”, “How to choose the best joomla hosting for a my site with 5k visits/day?” and more questions like that send to us via contact  page every week. That ‘s the reason why we decide to publish this post to help you have a general look about what kind of joomla hosting you need to make sure it match with what your joomla site require.


    Now we will give 4 traffic level base on the number of visits to your site. If you use Google Analytics you can base on the number of sessions. In Google Analytics, the number can be found like this:


    1. Best Joomla Hosting for Web Traffic level #1

    Joomla site with Traffic Level #1 or low traffic site will get the traffic less than 100 vistis/day. In this case the best joomla hosting package for your site only need a hosting what is designed good for joomla. That ‘s mean, it only need to keep everything work well and keep server resource good enough to work with caching and security. You can choose one of these

    With the hosting package option above, it even work well for you until 500 visits/day, and if you do the optimization well with cache, it can work well up to 2000 visits/day.

    2. Best Joomla Hosting for Web Traffic Level #2

    Joomla Site Traffic Level #2 will be assigned for the traffic from 100 visits/day to 500 visits/day. With this traffic, you site can make money if you know how to generate it from your site traffic. And of course, if it ‘s a real user traffic. For this type of traffic you can choose just the same like level #1 but to make sure it have no down time (because the number of accounts in the same shared server is not too much), you need to choose a better hosting level.

    But you know, the secret is almost our customers are happy with the first package for level #1 with their website traffic ~500 visits/day. So that you can feel free to use the first package first before moving the the second one.

    3. Best Joomla Hosting package for Web Traffic Level #3

    Level #3 of web traffic will be in range from 500 visits/day to 3000 visits/day. With this type of traffic you can even make money enough at home without going to work any more. Here is the list of package you can look at to make sure you joomla website work well.

    4. Best Joomla Hosting package for Web traffic level #4

    In this level you already make a lot of money with high traffic website, but you don’t have to move to expensive VPS or dedicated Server, you just need to choose one of these package what can guarantee you take traffic from 3000 to 10.000 visits/days.

    joomla high traffic website

    These type of package for joomla sites will have a big different from site to site because of the optimization. If you site are optimized, it even take you more than 20k visits/day, unless it can’t run with only 2k/day. If you don’t know how to make sure your joomla site is optimized or not, you can check the tutorial how to Speed Up Joomla.

    What if your site got even more than 20k visits/day, this is type of ultimate traffic site, you need to look at more detail to the site instead of only base on traffic to estimate the hosting package. But almost this type of traffic, you will need a VPS or dedicated hosting to make sure your site work well. We will do another article about high traffic website soon to help you.

    And now if you choose the right package but you still meet the problem with traffic, you can contact us for more information why it happen. Thanks and welcome any comment.

      This is only for joomla or can I use the same information to apply for wordpress? I guess wordpress is faster than joomla, right?

      I think the first level with traffic from 100 to 500 are matched with almost people. But how about the other features with security or … Do they keep all for us?

      It ‘s really useful to see a good article about hosting base on traffic, it ‘s exactly what I need for my website. But I always choose the next level of hosting base on traffic to prepare for the next website traffic. What do you think about this way. Let ‘s say I have site level 1 traffic, but I think it will increase soon, so that I choose level 2. Does it work?

      • November 3, 2014 at 11:02 pm

        It of course work, but you don’t have to do that, just use the package match with current traffic and the hosting company will remind you if they see your traffic increase too much. Don’t waste money in the first time to choose the high package 🙂

      I have a joomla website what are working with 2k visitors/day, it should work well with your package SiteGround GrowBig like you recommend but it doesn’t work faster my old hosting. Do I need to do any more step to make it fast or just moving?

      How about 200k/day? Which hosting plan should I choose for my joomla site?

      • December 5, 2014 at 12:16 pm

        You can choose SiteGround growbig package, it will work well enough for your site. Remember install wordpress super cache or W3 total cache then configure with information in supercacher for it. It should work nice more than you think

      The reason lead me to this article and I take a lot of time to research on this because it show me the result base on the real traffic base on practice. But as I know, the hosting and the traffic will belong much to your site optimization. That ‘s mean in this case, the best joomla hosting base on traffic will work well in the case your joomla site is optimized. Or it is tested on standard joomla installation?

      • December 19, 2014 at 11:37 am

        Hi Zenmad, we base on the standard joomla installation and turn on joomla system cache to check and compare between hosting packages.

      I have a website what only take 5k/day visits what is matched with your traffic level but I would like to have a dedicated bandwidth, I don’t wanna share the bandwidth because it will make my website is not stable. I may fast in this time but not in other time. What is the best choice for me with my need? Should I buy a dedicated server or shared hosting is good enough?

      • January 15, 2015 at 4:54 am

        You traffic is in level #4, but if you do the good optimisation, you can use level #3 or #2 base on number of pages on your xml sitemap. The caching will work more effect if you have proxy cache, so that it can help you work well in level #1 if you know how to do with it.
