Hosting requirements for Buddypress

    I am considering Buddypress for a business directory, and then letting businesses have their own blogs. My concern is for the amount of hosting and bandwidth that would require. I’ve never done this before, but I do operate many of my own sites using shared hosting on hostgator. Can anybody give me some direction as to what type of hosting I would need. What to look for. Tips for setting up BP to minimize bandwidth, and an idea what i might expect to pay for the hosting?

    Thank you,
    Steve

  • In part that depends on how big a BP install you’re going to have. I would read this: http://wpmu.org/dedicated-or-shared-hosting-for-wordpress-mu/

    Basically you’d look at it the same way you’d look at a WPMU site. How much traffic, how many users, how many groups and forums etc etc.
