The best option for hosting a medium Moddle Site



Hi guys,
In this moment I need an hosting for a medium moddle site, but I need the more efficient and cheapest hosting possible.
A shared hosting is feasible? or my only option is an VPS?

Thanks for your reply.
We can't really answer you that unless you gave us so more details re: traffic of your site. Why are you switching hosts? Is it because another host said your using too much server resources? If so, you'll most probably need a VPS.

VPSes in general allow you more server resources, as an "isolated" resource. Your guaranteed certain things like RAM and a VPS is really flexible. It's your OWN 'mini' server.
The traffic

The traffic is relatively low. Really, is a new project, approximately for 200 or 400 students and 50 or 60 courses. I'm not sure of the exact traffic, but in some cases need video downloads and documents attachment.
My question is about performance and resource consumption of moodle (nesesary memory, cpu, database connection, etc).

Moddle is a php and mysql (or postgres) based virtual education platform.
I see a "Moodle" but no "Moddle." Either way, I think whoever wrote it would be in a better position to tell you what its base resource requirements are as that's a fairly esoteric product.
