My project botmake.io usually had around 1000 daily visitors with quite a stable graph for a long time. The stack of the project is LEMP and it is built with Laravel.
Since most of the traffic was teenagers, I understood it is not going to help my premium package sales and they won’t be able to afford it. Normally it was never in my plans to put advertisements on the website but it was the best option to monetize the teenager traffic.
When the amount of traffic and data on the database was low it is not possible to notice the slowness but you will notice it at some point.
