    yes you can host that to ordinary web host unless you have big traffic on your website.

    If your site isn't using much bandwidth,then you should go with shared hosting,however if it is,then you might want to consider switching to a VPS server

    As sysguru mentioned, any host will do. BuddyPress is just a plugin for WordPress, so long as you find a host that supports WordPress (most, if not all do!) then you'll be OK.

    ... and don't forget to keep WordPress updated! Seeing a lot more instances of people compromising outdated WordPress installations.

    It really depends on how active those will be. If you are expecting 500-1000 online at a time, it might be better to go for a managed VPS just so you won't be stuck with the shared hosting resource limits (CPU, MySQL connections) and with management when you need help you ask. If you are fairly experienced in servers go with an unmanaged VPS.

    However if you are not concerned about the shared hosting CPU/Mysql caps you need an account with maybe 30 GB space and 500 GB bandwidth to be safe.

    First of all, how do you know you'll have 2,000 members in a month? Often times, people highly miscalculate or expect there blog, social networking site, etc to 'take off' with a grand number of visitors and traffic. This is often not the case, unless you're doing some heavy marketing.

    Honestly, I would just start with a quality Shared Hosting provider that has plans and products that will allow your website to grow over the course of time. Stay far away from 'Unlimited' hosts if you honestly expect your website to have any sort of real use. If your site grows, eventually you'll need to upgrade from a Shared platform onto something like a VPS. Virtual Cloud Servers are great as you're able to scale your resources (Memory, CPU priority, Storage, and Bandwidth) as needed to sustain the growth of your site.

    Anyhow, best of luck! The most important thing you can do at this point is get started off with a quality provider. As I mentioned above, I would not even consider Unlimited Hosting because your needs are rather basic. Wordpress can consume a lot of resources (Memory, CPU), and most Unlimited provider will have you suspended for 'high resource usage' much faster than the typical quality host who does not oversell.

    every hosting provider would be able to support wordpress but you should search the quality host according to your specific requirements such as disk/bandwidth etc.
