I am looking for a scalable ASP.NET host for under $20.00/ month.

I need it scalable just in case my website is featured on popular blogs and traffic increases dramatically (in that case, I would increase my budget).

So far I checked Amazon EC2, Rackspace and GoGrid, but they are far too expensive. I also checked GoDaddy 4GH but it limits MSSQL to 200MB.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Despite the fact that this will probably get closed for being off-topic, I'd like to know the answer. – Justin E. Morgan Feb 16 '11 at 21:04

Scalable how? If your website is featuered on popular blogs or sites it's not going to kill your website, because i highly doubt you will get enough clickthroughs. – Phill Feb 16 '11 at 21:06
@Phill I agree -I estimate 1% of the blog's daily visits. Thank you. – Bruno Ligutti Feb 16 '11 at 21:53

Scale, ASP.NET and $20/month is a pretty tough combination. Personally, I would pick a host that offers decent upsizing capabilities -- such as upgrading from shared hosting to a VPS in a pinch -- rather than buying something that claims it will scale for $20 a month.
