Unfortunately I am on a tight budget, so I cannot start with a virtual host or dedicated server. I will have to put up with shared hosting for a while.
Do you think it's OK to host my site at a US hosting provider, even if the visitors will be from Hungary? I don't think there should be a noticable slow-down, but who knows.
Another thing...these inexpensive hosting comapanies, like Hostgator, BlueHost, StarLogic, etc. does not seem to offer an upgrade, should your site ever grow out the shared hosting plan. I mean I see no referring to virtual hosting plans or dedicated servers. Since I am to run a dating service I need to plan ahead in case my site gets popular and lots of members log in at the same time.
I'd like to start out with an inexpensive hosting plan, but would like the possibilities of an upgrade in case my site gets heavy-loaded.
Could you please recommend a fast and reliable hosting company that offers everything from shard hosting to dedicated?
