    According to their official website VPS or Dedicated sever are essential for PHPMotion Hosting. So if you have a low budget, then at least you need to choose VPS. You need to consider below URL for more details.

    Yes Vps is a good option because its very cost effective as compared to Dedicated Server.

    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Yeap, VPS is a great choice to run PHPMotion script. However, for better performance and reliability you should opt VPS, which is based on hardware virtualization technology instead of software based. [/FONT]
