50 connections seems very small! Will it be enough?

Our "Lite" plan's 50 concurrent connections allowed are enough for nearly all of the sites we host. This is because each client that connects to a website typically only needs the connection to be open for a small fraction of a second while the client downloads the page; after that, it is closed, and does not count toward the total.

With a busy forum, for instance, forum pages might take 0.2 seconds to load. This means that about 250 people could load a page each second, assuming they don't load them all at the same time, and realistically the site could handle many more users than that, because each user is not clicking a new link every second.
