Pligg is an open source CMS that lets users submit and vote on content. If you’re looking to create the next Digg or reddit, this is the software to use. But what about Pligg hosting?
Any host that can handle more popular CMS’s like WordPress and Joomla should play fine with Pligg. Look for a provider that uses a LAMP configuration (Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP). Unfortunately, other database types like PostgreSQL and SQlite are not supported.
When determining how much space and bandwidth you will need, keep in mind that dynamic content management systems tend to use quite a bit of CPU and memory.
You will likely need to move to a VPS or dedicated server before you start using huge chunks of data transfer or fill up a 1 TB hard drive. Consider how many simultaneous users your site will have when determining hosting requirements.
