    Filehost | Setup | Suggestions?

    I bought a domain and I planned to set it up as a file sharing host.
    However I was wondering if any of you guys had suggestions for who should host the website.
    I was thinking a VPS, since it has more performance than shared hosting.
    Another issue: I will need a dedicated server or a VPS with a lot of space?
    Can anyone elaborate more on this subject, never ran a file hosting website and I want it to be a high quality site before I launch it.

    Requirements:
    Host a filesharing site such as Mediafire or Mega.co.nz
    Host a forum for the website
    Host user statistics


    Thank you

    If you will require a large quantity of storage and bandwidth, then you definitely want a dedicated server. At the beginning you could be fine with a VPS, but as your file hosting site grows you will have to upgrade to dedicated server.

    Could you give me a suggestion on the size?
    To be honest my budget is a bit on the smaller side.
    I have $150 I can invest. Website is being built and domain is bought. But I only have $150 for the servers :/
    Thanks.

    I would recommend Amazon Web Services, been using them for quite many years now and their pricing is getting better and better with features that can accommodate your growth to hundred of millions on users! Awesome service!
