I have a couple of nop sites on smarterasp.net, performance seems ok, one 3.7 site has 200 products and the other is a fresh 3.8 (in progress) with about 10 products and growing. performance seems ok, bit naffed of at the amount of recycles as they are not used heavily and they are also in the advanced shared plan (cant afford anything higher!).
I have the keepalive set up on scheduled task, but that seems not to keep them alive, even if set to every minute, as they will suffer from slow startup from time to time (usually when demoing to client).
Looking for other peoples expeience/solution to keep it alive/warm in smarterasp.net shared plan, other options i thought was to purchase extra 256mb, or use an external ping (any free ones ou there) any thoughts please?
