I've just finished an online text book/homework system website. I plan on launching in a month or two and am beginning to get nervous about whether I have the right host. I was hoping that I could have some help pointing me in the right direction. I'm not sure which of the following information is helpful, so I'd be be happy to provide more if needed:
1) In my wildest dreams, I'll have 10,000 users per day (this would be the number of people who can sign in and access the system --- there's an easy way for me to cut off new users if I need to do so).
2) Each user will be submitting homework solutions that are kept in my database forever (or until I die!). This translates to roughly 1000 homework solutions (less than 4 written characters per answer) per new user that is added over a 2 month period; after that, an old user can still access the site, but they won't be contributing any more to the database.
3) It would be very, very bad if my site "went down" since students will be submitting time-sensitive homework questions.
Right now I'm using Godaddy and have had no problems with them. However, I've been reading up on them on the web and it looks like they have tons of complaints.
Anyway, as my post is currently, you may need more information before letting me know if:
1) Godaddy is a good host
2) If there are any database/traffic issues that I also need to consider.
Thanks so much!
