I have been working on my site for the past 6 months, I finally feel like I have everything in place to start promoting it.
But I have a few final questions. Firstly, about hosting, I have read all about dedicated hosting, VPS and that this is what we should have for multisite, but when I asked my host about it. Now they have been incredibly helpful from the start, but they said that I was fine on the shared hosting and that a VPS wasn't needed yet, that I should just go up though their packages as I need to. I have had no problem with my hosting and have even added the multi databases without issue. They are a local (Irish) host and seem great, but are they right?
Secondly, I have decided not to get a SSL certificate, as I now have 3 domains using the multi domain plugin, and would have to go for a wild card subdomain certificate for each (very expensive) and I am using paypal exclusively for marketpress (chained payments) and Supporter. Do you think this is a safe option, not getting the SSL? Should I get one for my main site?
Thirdly, every so often my site gets exhausted. I have allocated 64M in .htaccess. I have read about this php.ini file. I don't have one. Can you just create that file yourself? Is going over 64M excessive?
Finally, thanks for all the great advice!
