Need host that allows lots of CURLs
« on: July 26, 2017, 06:41:52 AM »
Hi

I'm gonna be using a third-party server for sending SMS's from my website.
Each SMS requires a CURL call to the SMS server.
I need to send lots of lots of messages (not spam if that matters, i have clients with membership contacts).

are there any limitations to curl calls on most web hosts?
any recommendations for web hosts that handles such things?

Thanks a million!

Any reply that mentions any hosting service other than Lunarpages will be immediately removed, and the member blacklisted as a spammer!

Lunarpages allows cURLs, and there is no set limit that I'm aware of. However, each instance does consume resources (CPU load, bandwidth), and excessive CPU load on a shared server will result in restrictions on an account. It would be best to open a support ticket to sales@lunarpages.com or support@lunarpages.com and discuss your exact anticipated load. They should be able to tell you which hosting plan at LP should best fit your needs. You can always start with a Basic plan (Linux, shared server), and if you run into load problems, upgrade to a more capable plan (at higher expense, of course). Just be prepared to have to move in a hurry.
