Does it _have_ to be a VPS? I have lots of hosting space, but it's on
a shared server.

I can install as many domains as I'd like, capping at 40GB of space,
1800GB of bandwidth per month, 160MB of RAM and I've already pre-paid
for it.

developer and would love to help with the site. I helped with Ground

I'm a web developer by professional, so if I'm available for my
clients, I should be just as available for this domain

I can then host and theme a Wordpress install and make multiple users
for moderation.
