I have a kickass domain name and a great script that will hopefully be making me some serious bank over the next few months. But everything hangs on getting this right first time. The script needs cronjobs and PHP5.2. I can get webhosting with cronjobs enabled at one host for a few dollars a year. Or I can get a VServer for 5.99 a month with unlimited traffic, wildcard subs, SQL Dbases, php5.2 and the works. In your experience how well do shared servers function with cronjobs running as well as all the other trimmings when compared with a VServer? What should I invest in? The site will eventually be a Youtube clone, but with paid-to-share functionality. So people will earn a few cents whenever they share a video from my site. Not sure on the legalities of paying people to share public domain content (do I need to go offshore for this?). People will also be able to upload their own vids, so space wil become an issue, but in the interest of risk management, I'm thinking shared to begin with? Hope this all makes sense, just looking for some advice from older wiser heads.
