Maybe you should ask "Is my hosting provider server powerful enough for described needs?". And then define those needs. – Sampo Sarrala Oct 20 '12 at 16:36
depends what your site does? and what @Sampo said is a good indication your don't really know? – Riaan Oct 20 '12 at 16:41
as it has Failed requests: 3,499 (58) is it normal? – عثمان غني Oct 20 '12 at 16:43
Are you an administrator on this server? Do you have console/command-line access or do you just administer your server through a control panel? – MDMarra Oct 20 '12 at 16:47

814 requests per day should be easy to serve unless you have a plugin or theme that is doing something really resource intensive. I would recommend using the "wp super cache" plugin because it will do full page caching and decrease the load your site is putting on the server significantly.

50 unique visitors per day is nothing. You could host that on a cell phone. The "power" of your server is most likely not the problem, though you haven't listed any specs. I suppose if it's running off of a Pentium I with 16MB of RAM you might have a hard time.

I was actually going to say the same thing about my phone. – mfinni Oct 20 '12 at 16:47
