There are hosts that offer quite scalable services and allow you to easily upgrade or downgrade your plan or service when needed. You can choose a plan with higher specifications just in case your traffic increases. Thus, your website will be able to handle the amount of traffic you get, even if it’s significantly high. Or, if you’ve noticed that only in holiday season the traffic to your website drastically increases, you can upgrade the service you’re using and move to a plan that offers better characteristics (only for this specific period). When your traffic is back to normal, I mean when the holiday season is over, you can again downgrade your plan and thus you’ll save some money. At least that’s what I usually do with BGOcloud’s Magento hosting plan that I’m currently using.
