Hey guys i need some help with dedicated servers. My website got to a point where it's getting huge amount of hits with over 150 visitors on the site at the same time and my hosting plan just cant handle it. They told me i need to get a dedicated server. I dont really have much experience with them. Is it hard to set up? Also i have local broadband internet connection. Will they charge me more if i have thousands of people coming in and out from my server?

You don't need a dedicated server with that volume of people. You should be able to handle that with a regular hosting plan at the right company.

Change hosting companies. your host is just trying to upsell you something you don't really need yet.
