Memory or CPU Cores for VPS

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

CPU will give you faster response while RAM will help you in caching. Both are important but I’ll give 2GB memory a try first if you want to make a choice b/w the two. Also depends on Virtualization technology. The CPU cores may not be 100% dedicated to the VPS. They may be shared vCPU.

Having said that 1500 visits are not that many to put on a VPS. A lightly loaded shared server that has plenty of CPU/RAM will serve it better.

VPS would be good if you (a) need some special configuration that is not available on shared server (b) need complete operating system/IP isolation from others.
