Topic: Need a recommendation for web hosting
Can anybody recommend cheap web hosting for my site?
It's an application where users post contents and images and view them. They don't post often, only when creating and changing the profile, although it allows max 100 images total per user (but usually it would be much less). I reckon it would be about 2-5 Mb storage per user, images and indexes, and I will need to upgrade to a better hosting plan once I get more users. I don't want to get into an expensive plan right now because the users for now will be only my friends. I optimized the application as much as possible but the bottleneck where it might become slow is uploading images.
I will need ImageScience and Ultrasphinx installed. The application uses caching in the file system, but if memcached is available it would be great.
I was considering hostingrails.com, but some reviews say it's slow. Does anybody know how slow it is?
