    I would recommend you to go for a Windows VPS with good enough ram to support ASP.NET well. With a 2 GB of ram would be enough to kick start and can be upgraded as your resources utilization on VPS.

    I doubt you would have a lot of traffic when you're "starting a community", why don't you just start small and scale as you need? Growing a community is not very easy and often needs a lot of time.

    Perhaps look at a provider where you pay per use. Since your community will start out small, you won't be paying a lot. Use someone that can easily scale up as you need.

    Perhaps Microsoft's Azure or Amazon AWS?
