Are you sure about all of this?
It's just a simple website right. At this point.
Why get an VPS provider? It makes no sense.
VPS is what you do if you want to build a complex website or a server
that sports additional features other than the website. A place to run
python scripts, do some background processing (or backend) a place to
install an FTP server, and so on.
Just for the website you just don't need it. The only thing that is
something that is not always available with webhosts is SSH access. I
would typically want that to be available.
But then all of the other maintenance (that is not for the website
itself) falls in the hands of the company you are purchasing it from.
For example, this one seems fine: http://www.one.com/en/ftp-php-mysql-ssh-sftp
Of course, being a software project yourself you DO want some
"ownness" to it. But I think VPS is just too much, places too much of
a burden on the volunteers.
That is, unless you are planning to do much more with the website.
(This one.com is weird though, it seems you have to register a domain.)
Buuut, it seems you are already on the tract of getting a VPS. Take
care though. Take care, and watch it.
