I've been developing a website that makes many calls to facebook/twitter/linkedin API's while dealing with my own database for multiple users. For the initial hosting, I went with the cheapest I could find, which was godaddy's $5 hosting plan.
I knew that I would have to switch to something more powerful down the road, but apparently I'm having to do it whilst still developing. I run many php scripts that communicate with my own MySQL servers while contacting other social network api's aswell. The GoDaddy servers are going so slow that I'm getting connection timeouts with the social network servers.
I've done my share of research and came to the conclusion that InMotion has the best serving capabilities when dealing with dedicated servers, so I plan on switching to them in the future. In the meantime, how much more performance can I expect from InMotion's basic VPS server? These are the specs.
RAM: 512mg/1gb Burstable
2 Ip addresses
I'd like to ask the opinion of the people on here. Is this overkill? Will this suffice? and how much better than GoDaddy's $5 hosting is this? Do you have any other suggestions?
All input is welcome, Thank you!!!
