Dear experts,

It seems that many cms for social websites requires VPS hosting account. Currently I am working on a website using Drupal Commons on a share hosting account, but I am afraid I will have to upgrade my hosting account to VPS to be able to use some modules such as memcache.

I don´t really have the budget to get a VPS account, so I was wondering if you guys know a a way to work around. I don´t want to start my site from zero, but I guess if I have to I would have to do it.

I am expecting the site to grow progressively, and I hope to purchase a good VPS account when I have the money, meanwhile I need my site to start running decently. I am expecting on average a two thousand people in a period of 2 months or so...

Could you please give me some advice on the matter, I have the feeling I am not seeing the whole picture.
