    If you're seriously going to get one million visitors/month you're best off going for a dedicated server. Even a VPS wouldn't cope very well with that traffic load. The cheapest dedicated servers I know of come from https://www.wholesaleinternet.net/dedicated/ and they start at $10/month.

    It really depends on the Website. Does it have a lot of Images or Videos or just Text? How many Pages etc...
    I had Problems with a lot of Hosters in the Past no matter what kind of Server I ordered. All Problems were gone when I switched Harddrives to SSDs. If you have a lot of Content and a lot of Images etc...a slow Disk can not handle all the requests, no matter how much Ram or how powerful your CPU is.

    If it is a wordpress site... Get a linode or digitalocean droplet + serverpilot.
    Serverpilot is like a very minimalistic alternative for cPANEL.

    If you don't need SSL even the free version of serverpilot would do.
    If you do need SSL, serverpilot costs only $10/month per server.

    For email, you can use zohomail for free for upto 25 users.

    This is the setup I use on my money sites. No other shared hosting plan will come anywhere close to the speeds I get in this for the price.

    1 million. That is ambitious. Start with shared hosting and aim to get 10,000 monthly visitors first. Then go to VPS, and then to a dedicated server.

    Actully it is service related website where people came and they will post pictures/write something. At first month at least 100,000 people will come on site and I don't wanna loose them because of bad host. My first month budget is around 40-50$ for hosting. If required more than that then I am ready to upgrade more than that.
    NO, My site is not on WordPress platform, but it has heavy database.

    Do what @satyawrat suggested. DigitalOcean scales seamlessly and should accommodate your requirements pretty well.

    This will also help you start small and prevent losing a lot of money, in the event the project doesn't take off and you sit wondering why a million people haven't yet flocked to your website.

    How certain are you of these traffic numbers ?
    At first month at least 100,000 people

    If that is the case, spend now and get a dedicated server to save you upgrading.
    There'll be some great offer for Black Friday weekend, I'm sure.

    Your definately going to need to increase your budget at least by half. Expecting platinum service for dirt cheap prices can be the downfall of your website :) Spend more money and get service you know you can rely on.

    get a dedicated server and install it with Litespeed + cloudlinux + cPanel , then only you can manage 1 million visitors in a month.
    minimum CPU you required in E3 or E5 with at least 12GB ram , and it should be SSD drive not SATA or else your users will experience slow browsing.

    This is true. Some more investment is needed for sure.

    Yes for sure + SSD in HW RAID 10 and it will all be well for how much you can do all of the listed above? (cPanel paid, CloudLinux paid, LiteSpee paid).

    If you are on a budget, and you have single website and considering that you do know how to manage servers, get dedicated server without any panels and any additional costs managed by your service provider install Nginx/Apache, PHP and MySQL and get things running and upgrade down the road.

    While doing math, do not forget to calculate bandwidth in the process as well and don't forget backups and server location. :)
