(I tried to search for an answer using the search button but couldn't find something recent and specific...)
I'm having my first ever product launch...
...and planning to move my sites (one site for the front end product and another is a membership site that would be promoted at the backend).
1) Do I need a Dedicated Server or would a VPS do for the launch?
2) What hosting companies would you recommend?
3) Would membership sites (let's say you have 100, 250, 500, or 1000 members) require a Dedicated Hosting? Or would a "shared" or "VPS" hosting do?
I'm sorry if I can't mention any number for the case of "traffic" during launches because I have never done a launch for myself. If you can help me figure it out, that would be awesome as well.
Thanks in advance.
