    Web hosting upgrade

    Hello all.

    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
    40gb Storage
    750GB Bandwidth/month
    2 Ip addresses
    Linux/Cpanel

    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!!!

    You've not said what the hosting is for? What type of website will it be? ie for a single paged website, that's overkill, for a site like amazon, it's not enough.

    I mentioned the API calls but I could go into more details.

    It's an aggregator of online sources. I'm building it with PHP. My scripts make calls to dozens of public api's available online. I also use many databases and tables to store user information and access tokens for different accounts.

    My page will be displaying many pictures, videos, and anything that can show up in social network feeds. I will also support the uploading of pictures and videos.

    What other kind of information would you need?

    What country do you want the servers to reside?

    I'd personally say that a cloud-structured set up would be best, catering best for burstable/flexible resource allocations.

    Also, remember, you get what you pay for.
