    What kind of host should I get to handle being Dugg?

    I have this nifty js script which I expect to be Dugg or slashdotted. After gzipping, script + all images will total 50 kilobytes.

    It is a static page, no server scripting whatsoever.

    Will a shared host be sufficient to handle all those simultaneous requests? I would like the files to be transferred to end users insanely fast (eg. google.com splash screen speed)

    Should I shell out extra for dedicated? If so, what kind of specs on server?

    Thanks for the help

    I would think just about any host could handle a 50k static file. No offense, but with 50k and a static page, that is just not much.

    There's one shared host who is supposedly extremely fast (from what I've read on WHT). Is it MediaLayer?

    Edit: I think Zone.net are also pretty fast. Maybe you could get a VPS from them and install lighttpd

    MediaLayer will easily be able to handle that with fast page loads.

    I think any reputable host will be able to handle getting dugg for a site like yours.
