I still have yet to publish apps but I am expecting (from other sales) that I could be getting 1,000s of users a day and could peak up to something very very high if the apps were to sell a lot.
I am looking for a VPS provider that I can scale up when my apps are being heavily used and then back down when I don't need the resources. Provider also needs to be very reliable as I can not afford to get a bad review. I do not require cpanel or any other GUI platform but would be nice. I do require at least 10GB of space.
Right now I am looking for something very basic as I am not using very much resources at all. Probably something around $30.
Here are the hosts I am thinking about:
stormondemand.com - seam to be reliable but not as cheap as dotblock
VPS.net - Unsure
alienvps.com - Very good prices but how reliable are they?
dotblock.com - I may like this option the best but I am unsure how good their uptime is
Also, if you have any other hosting suggestions please let me know.
I would probably get the most sales in the US so maybe central like dallas or something. I am not quite sure yet on the managed/unmannaged part as I have never worked with a VPS before but its never a bad time to learn. So I may try and get unmanaged to see if I can get that working and if not then switch to managed.
