    hosting cost for social network

    Hi,
    I am working on a kind of a social network. We have few hundred users who use our site and have a hosting for around 250$. Its enough for the beggining, but we are expanding and we are awaiting a lot of new users soon. I am curious and it would be very helpful if some could give a feedback, how can the price for hosting raise according to number of users, how high can it be for 5 000 users or 10 000...
    I know there are also other things that influence the cost, but maybe some tips or thoughts, some experience would be great.

    Thanks

    It depends upon what script you use. Check out this thread http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1050702
    It might be helpful as it was lots better for me. I have 2 site hosted in this server using Social Engine 4 and I charge $50/mo each. Sites load fast and each of them have about 5k users.

    I'd be interested in checking this out as well. For flexibility, you may want to look at some type of cloud solution so you can expand with ease.

    Very interesting indeed, could you PM your URL so i can take a look. Though i'd think of buying my own server in that case..
