The shared server that we’re currently using to host book.realworldhaskell.org is, as you’ve probably noticed, prone to sluggish response times. This is because it’s hosting rather a lot of services and content, notably the Subversion and Mercurial manuals.
As our traffic levels continue to increase, I’d like the book content to remain nippy, and so I’m thinking of moving to a virtual private server arrangement of some sort. That market is crowded, to say the least, so it’s very difficult to make an informed decision.
I’m looking for your recommendations for a provider that does a good job of balancing price with availability, network bandwidth, memory, configurability, and so on. Thanks for your help!
