    Searching for an affordable webhost for uploading a community website, sort of small social-media, may get bigger but to start with.

    It needs to:

    - Be affordable to start with.
    - Offer some possibilities to get some visitors, enough data to have a nice start growth.
    - Maybe some nice extra deals, like some companies offer free ad cash.
    - Possibility to expand if your site grows.

    How do you feel also to start small and upgrade your account to your site's needs.

    Also, I search for a site that offers me some nice packages compared to the price they ask for it.

    Not that experienced with web hosts and I'm sure there's a difference in terms of what they offer!

    Best advice is to go to the marketplace and look at the reviews and what they offer. That would be a good start.

    I would go first with namecheap. They support is extremely good.

    That is how most of the larger sites start out. They will start out on a basic shared hosting plan. Then as the site grows then move into a VPS and then over into a Dedicated Server.

    Very Few will start out going right with a Dedicated Server unless you have funds to do so and you plan on the site taking off fast.

    I would go with a VPS right from the start and ask the tech them to install the script/CMS on it. Find a provider that can give you free installation (saves you $40 usually). Even for new websites, it's not recommended to go with shared hosting any more, because it often goes offline (DDoS, oversell, you name it)

    This affects your ranking, and that's what you want right? To become popular.

    I suggest hostwinds. I recommend their service, not only that their server is fast and rock-solid but also they have fast and very good support team.

    Not that I'm fan of shared hosting but will have to disagree with you (unless you are talking for one penny "unlimited everything" providers).
