To figure that out, you need to answer (at least) these questions:
- How large is your site?
- What server system will you be running?
- What website software (WordPress, Joomla!, Plone, etc) will you be running?
- How many visitors do you expect every month/day/concurrently?
- How much disk storage space do you need?
That's just a starting point, but it's an idea. There is literally 100's of variables that you would need to know in order to give a proper answer.
The best answer that anyone could reliably give is this:
Start off with a reasonable shared hosting plan with a host that has good upgrade paths available, and upgrade to more resources, or a VPS, dedicated server or cluster as it's needed. There's almost always no need to go full hard-core from the start, so it's better off to see what you actually need first.

For me Uptime and Speed, Support and Price are very important factors when choosing a right web host. Would also prefer a cpanel host.
You can rely on hostwinds as they have good reputation and offer nice ssd hosting solutions. So far, you will experience any downtime, and the servers will be fast.

It depends on many factors: your budget, number of visitors and your skills in server administrations. I'd recommend to start from vps which would deliver all needed features for every webmaster at reasonable price. Personally I am using hostwinds and happy with them.

thanks for the tips. BTW, how much traffic a vps is capable to handle?

I could say "A VPS will easily handle 2,000,000,000 concurrent visitors" and when it doesn't you'll ask and then I'd say "Oh, not that one. It's not powerful enough."... Get the idea?
