Why are high-traffic events dangerous?

High-traffic events pose a lot of problems for websites with a standard setup. This is because most sites, especially those on shared hosting plans, can only expect a few thousand visitors spread out over the course of a month.

Even if you get more monthly visitors, the traffic is typically spread out over time. For example, if you get 100,000 visitors a month, that works out to about 140 visitors per hour. As you can imagine, getting hundreds of visitors in a matter of minutes is a huge increase.
