I'm looking at deploying a new commercial web service I've developed, but I'm unsure as to the market potential as yet so I don't wish to purchase a heavyweight server immediately. An ISP who i've dealt with before and I'm pretty happy with are offering economy servers with the following spec for a good price (around $65 pm)
1.8GHz 2Mb Core 2 Duo
If all I'm running on this server is Apache, PHP and MySQL with a well designed, initially small, database for a single domain only will this level of hardware be sufficient to give me reasonable headroom?
ADDED: Bandwidth is 'unlimited' and I've a couple of other dedicated servers for clients there who've I've not had an issue with under this formula so I don't think that's a concern. I also have shared backup space on the ISP I can use so that's at a reasonable level too for the moment.
