Shared or Dedicated or VPS or Cloud hosting to host a custom PHP application

I have to host a web application which is powered by a wordpress + moodle LMS + custom php application, expected traffic around 1000 clicks per day, traffic will scale slowly.. which hosting is best for our requirement is it shared or VPS or dedicated or cloud. Want low hosting costs at the beginning.

What determines quick page hosting is it the RAM on the server ? If that is the case 2GB or 4GB RAM required for quick page downloads on end user systems? Assuming there are 20-30 concurrent users viewing the same page.

Also kindly suggest which vendor is best along with the type of hosting(shared/cloud/VPS/Dedicated) suitable for our requirement.

Kindly advice, thanks in advance!

At 1000 pages / clicks per day you should find that any basic web-hosting account will more than cope with this. The vast majority of shared web accounts even come with a control panel that will let you install wordpress automatically. If you really want to go to a VPS then, again, even the lowest level of VPS should be able to cope with 1000 pages a day with no worries. Start with a $5 a month shared hosting account and see how it goes.
