I have a php script which requires no web hosting or disk space etc. The script simply retrieves infromation from a server, does some processing on this information and than passes it on to a client (an iPhone app in this case). The only thing is that if traffic gets high than there is a high demand for bandwidth and speed.

Does anyone know of a service with high speed and badwidth (apart from web hosting services) that allows you to host (on a static ip) such a php script?


Accepted Answer

You may want to try some sort of cloud service where you can set up the environment you actually need. Let's say your script need a lot of RAM but only little CPU power (or the other way around) you can have exactly such a system. Amazon EC2 is one of many cloud computing providers out there.
