Lots of redirects via 301s can server crash?

I’m running a big marketing campaign on Monday where I gave a lot of people individual links that my shared Webserver will redirect via htaccess. For example:

domain.com/blog1 -> redirects to -> domain2.com/?=trackblog1

domain.com/blog2 -> redirects to -> domain2.com/?=trackblog2

domain.com/blog3 -> redirects to -> domain2.com/?=trackblog3

I’m using a shared server from bluehost and I’m afraid it will crash under to many requests. Could that be the case? What could I do to prevent the server from crashing.

I expect at least 30,000-50,000 request overall. Should I be fine?

Thanks for the help!
