The point was not that you can get a cheaper dedicated server, the point was that saying that a VPS is underpowered and you must go dedicated is incorrect.
VPS's can scale to any level depending on needs.
I'm all about the Dedicated servers myself, BUT if someone wants a VPS and wants to be able to scale up, there are options.
The information on the $200/month VPS was in direct reply to the following statement;
You could start with a VPS however its performance is never equal to a dedicated server.
Just because VPS is in the name, that does not automatically mean it's underpowered.
