I have a small eCommerce website & I get only around 100 visitors a day. Now I want to start an advertising campaign & if a lot of people visit my site, I need a guarantee from the web host that they are not going to take down my website. My friend suggests me to move my website from shared hosting to VPS. Any recommendations?

It all depends on your website, and the amount of traffic it is generating if it is a new one then, in that case, shared hosting would be the better option. When hosting an eCommerce website, security is the first and foremost factor that you should keep in mind.

Move your website from Shared Hosting to either VPS or Dedicated server. If you keep on using Shared Hosting, then once your domain becomes famous and visitors flock in, it'll be very difficult for you to keep your domain from getting jammed.
Instead, it you relocate to VPS or Dedicated server, you can utilize the resources allocated to you to efficiently host your domain and provide no fuss to users.

Yes, of course, VPS will be the right choice for your e-commerce website. VPS server is totally based on the virtual generation, which will divide a physical server into multiple virtual servers.
These are the most important benefits of using web hosting for an e-commerce website.
    eCommerce software compatibility. One of the main features every eCommerce website needs is the shopping cart functionality.
            Customer service.
              Email addresses.
                SEO features.

                  It not advisable to run e-commerce like competitive websites with frequent visitors on a shared hosting server, as it will affect the website performance. Since daily payment processing and updates are frequent on eCommerce like websites, it is not secure to run the database on a shared database server, you need to go for a dedicated server with good amount of RAM and good processing speed . Also always ensure that backups are enabled for databases in regular intervals so that it is simple to restore the website in case of data loss.
                  Or else you need go for a cloud server.

                  Since sensitive payment information are associated with eCommerce website an SSL security need to be implemented as well.

                  VPS is always a better choice cause you will get the full server(virtual) to host a website. You’ll get more resources such as RAM, disk space, Bandwidth, etc. in VPS than Shared Hosting. Also, you’ll get better security and performance as well as more reliability than Shared Hosting. But it costs more, so make sure that it is affordable with your budget or not.
