VPS have other domains using it. So 1 GB ram VPS won't be enough if you have that many clients and concurrent users.

It would be best to have a dedicated server for that kind of site.

I suggest a dedicated server or a colocation web hosting service.

As the others have said. And if you get as big as MySpace you'll likely need more than one server. You'll be talking plurals.

But then you'll be rolling in dough by that point LOL :O)
