Right know I'm into the mobile business and we are making some applications. The programmer team leader (hired by me in GAF) in charge of building this app is asking me this for hosting. Now The application will have around 20.000 users or maybe more. App will serve currency, weather info and ads. So my questions are:
Will I need a dedicated server, virtual dedicated server, or simple shared hosting with the below requirements? wich will be the best option for me?
In any case, wich hosting do you recommend, any site in particular? I need one that is cheap and follows my needs.
Some of the requirements I don't understand, I mark them with parenthesis.
You will require a hosting with this specification. These are primary requirements
1. unlimited bandwidth
2. latest mysql server
3. php 5 or later
4. shell access in the server
(Why would he need shell access, what is the function of this?)
5. i think you will get unlimited space too at small cost
6. ability to run cron jobs in the server
( what are cron jobs and for what will he need them?)
Thank you for answering this question. I'm just becoming a new user of this webpage.
