I wanted to learn PHP for various (not very interesting) reasons and so have spent the past few months creating a PHP site for hosting funny videos, images, games and jokes (similar in nature to Break.com). I’m looking to have it hosted so that others can (hopefully) enjoy the fruits of my labour!
The site is quite dynamic and uses PHP extensively (as well as SQL to display the content details and allow users to post comments on the content).
My question really is: should I use Dreamhost to host this site or will it struggle with the load? So far I have about 2GB of content to host and roughly 14 mySQL tables.
I know this really depends on the number of people who visit the site but any advice is greatly appreciated.
