    Talking Good VPS with Scalability... for new project.

    Good afternoon,

    I cant believe I'm asking for help, but here I am. Me and my younger brother are creating a new website, making this my 3rd Internet Venture. We have done allot of research and have concluded that this is a very good opportunity for us and a VERY unique niche.

    So, set-a-side from my businesses; I want a host who can take care of the hosting as am Already tied up with 4 full-time jobs and I cant fit taking care of another project on-top of my jobs already I already work near 23 hours a day.

    So, Specifications MUST include Linux and be able to cope up 100's of MySQL queries (possibly 1000's per second). There must be an option to add more nodes instantly or very quickly. This must be a solid, DC host; not some reseller with limited ability to switch nodes on and off.

    Ideally, we want to start small and as the site grows, our needs grow; thus the need for scalability.

    So, starting budget would be around ~10.00 as we have no users as of yet. I don't care about support. I already run a Hosting Business with techy's so support is not much a concern.

    I look forward to reading your suggestions.

    P.S: I have already thought about cloud, because I like the idea of switching boxes on and off when i need them, but we don't need that yet as we haven't launched yet .

    KnownHost offers managed service if cPanel is ordered.
    Hosting is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.

    Which location you are looking to?
    In my opinion most of the VPS hosting is quite flexible in terms scalability. Not much concern about it in stead. :: Cloud Hosting Reliable Xen VPS :: Serving Customer From More Than 40 Countries.

    Your best bet is to check the Buy&Sell section of this community as it's a great advertisements section to find all information's about current specials, promotions, and sales that the provider is offering to WHT and get the best prices you can on the provider you like.

    After you find a list of providers you like; It's then good to update this thread with 'em asking feedback about which one you think would best fit for you from the requirements you told us and then we can help you more. There's no such thing as a best provider; only the best provider for you.

    Good luck,

    Slightly offtopic, but when you do find the ideal VPS provider, you should look at Percona MySQL. It's a retooling of the MySQL and it scales farther and is more performant. There's a free version and a paid version with support.

    People running a Wordpress blog or whatever don't need it, but once you get to high levels of concurrency (and esp. with InnoDB), Percona shines.

    I'm removing to the list, bad reviews had been flooding WHT so far. Though I'd add Linode to that. (they have nodebalancers now, yay!)
