GeoDirectory v2 was built from the ground up to run on any hosting and with any caching system.

Our hosting of choice is Cloudways, in particular their Vultr High-Frequency option.

We use it for our demos and also for some personal projects and we are very happy with their performances.

For directories with regular traffic, the first option (1GB) is more than enough and you can always upgrade when needed.
