I have to give credit to the folks at EngineHosting (formerly pMachine Hosting—more on that later) for handling the spike without any real issue. The site continued to respond well enough that I hardly noticed that it was under any additional strain. If you need web hosting, particularly if you want to run ExpressionEngine, then you’d do well to check them out. They’ll even install ExpressionEngine Core (the free version) for you on your account.
