    Hello,

    I would not suggest you hostgator's VPS service for phpmotion site
    Their traffic can get very busy resulting on high loading times.
    When hostgator sees that your site is using a lot of traffic, they limit your throughput at only 4mbps :(

    I do provide VPS's with 100mbps traffic at my hosting company : heyhost (dot) net and you'll get good support
    or I suggest you
    server4you or
    1and1 vServers
    Although there is no good support

    why not purchase dedicated hardisk with few GB memory? VPS not enough, because you need to convert user uploaded video, handle webserver, etc
