You're *really* expecting a 5000% increase in members, a 30fold increase in traffic and a 50* increase in disk use ?
WOW - care to share the marketing plan ?
You're already having problems at 20 members with oversold shared hosting, and whilst a different host will solve the initial problems, you will need to move to a dedicated solution long before you hit your membership targets.
So, alongside your 50* membership increase, do you have a 15* budget increase set aside ?
We've handled a car owners forum with ~15,000 members, ~300 active on any given day - and it requires several dedicated servers, load-balancer, separate DB server and ~£2000/month
