    Need your suggestion about photo gallery site

    I want to buy a VPS to host my photo gallery website.
    I need 800G-2000G/month bandwidth and about 80G+ diskspace.
    The price is not too expensive (less than 60$/month). Do you have any suggestion about it?

    I'd look into a dedicated box in that price range from www.volumedrive.com.

    If you just want a cheap server, volumedrive should be the best one but they looks like on BurstNet network. You are operating a large photo gallery, the most important to you is network speed, I will suggest to get a VPS instead.

    Dedicated box under $60 is hard enough to find one with fast network.

    The Burst network wasn't slow when I used it but might be over-saturated now with their "Insane Pricing Sale(s)", etc. VD is a solid provider and uses new hardware so you can't go wrong if you need a sub-$60 on a budget.

    you need (if you do not want post here bad reviews and ask for new hosting provider every 3 days )
    - increase your budget
    - look for dedicated server at list
    The gallery takes lots of CPU and RAM usage. You have to take that in consideration (Not only space and bandwidth)
    You have to remember about that

    I would recommend burst.net
    Not sure what you mean by "slow". perhaps you had a slow server, because I am currently with burst and their network is not slow. They also have very cheap servers.
