http://stackoverflow.com/questions/685162/how-much-traffic-can-shared-web-hosting-take

stated that a $5/mo shared hosting account on Reliablesite.net can support 10,000 - 20,000 unique users/day and 100,000 - 200,000 pageviews/day. That seems awfully high for a $5/mo account. And someone else told me it's far less than that. What's your experience?

I have a site based on Python, Django, MySQL/Postgresql. It doesn't have any video or other bandwidth heavy elements, but the whole site is dynamic, each page takes about 5 to 10 DB query, 90% reads, 10% writes.

Reliablesite.net is an ASP.NET hosting company. Any Python/LAMP hosting firm that can support 100-200,000 pageviews on a shared hosting account? If not, what kind of numbers am I looking at? Any suggestions for good hosting firms?

Thanks

If your application is optimized, you shared hosting account can handle 10k unique visitors per day.

You can find a great hosting for your needs at WFT (WebHostingTalk)

One of the biggest hosting provider is GoDaddy (I RECOMMEND IT). Their shared hosting plan with Python starts from $7/month. With them you can host multiple websites on the same account without extra charge.

And also take a look at this offer: http://mediatemple.net/webhosting/gs/features/

(mt) MediaTemplate company is not that big as GoDaddy but is also in good standing. Reliable.net is too small.

So, here recommended options are:
