No offense but please do not go with A2Hosting, they have spent a huge amount of money but last year they were hacked and all their Windows Server (including VPS) went down for more than a month (In my eyes, if it can happen to Windows, it can happen to Linux and for that matter any other OS).

Couple of other points:
1. Their support team is ridiculous, they delete the tickets if they are caught providing misinformation.
2. They did not have any backups (they restored 2-3 months old backups which disrupted our work even more)
3. Their response to the crisis was horrible.

I would sincerely recommend to stay away from them. They might have fixed everything but are you willing to take that risk?

Regards,
Chinmay.

What about the mongoDB?

Every decent Cloud Service Provider supports MongoDB (I personally prefer PostgreSQL - gives me both a relational database and a document database)  - and even I would have gone with it if I was 100% sure that my solution will benefit from it.

In your case, your technical and business requirements will be able to clarify, if MongoDB makes sense or not.
