I have been a webmaster since 1999 and I have had my fair share of websites. And one that really stands out in my mind! Is my old Linux forum and it was growing at a rapid rate and it was growing so fast that I couldn't afford the hosting anymore and so I sold it. And to me those were bad growing pains.
I have a new website now and it's growing slowly and it has just outgrown shared hosting and I just moved it to a vps. And I am very happy that it's growing a slow rate where I can keep up with it. So my question is do you think it's a good or bad thing if your website grows at a rapid rate?
