Errmm... Guess I'm replying to all your threads.

1) Don't know. Can't know.

2) When do you want vps? When you feel comfortable in managing a vps. Really, low end vpses aren't even more expensive than shared hosting. And almost always more resources.

When you need vps? When you feel that your current host is inadequate. There's no specific number I can give you, or anyone.

Though I'm guessing you already bought the license, but personally, if you were to go to shared route, you'll be better off with IPS hosted. Just seems to make more sense cost-wise. I haven't tried IPS hosted solution myself, but since these servers are for IPS hosting only, they'll be better optimized to serve IPS needs better than generic hosts too. Though, prices kind of rise fast.
