    I just want to make a simple forum where people talk about politics.

    The topic does not really matter either.

    It is the resources that the site/system is going to require that will determine whether shared hosting is suitable or not

    Yes, plus;

    Processor utilisation, sometimes called 'Load Averages'.

    Memory usage both average and 'burst'.

    Data transfer (NOT the same as 'bandwidth').

    Database queries per minute/hour.

    Yeah! It's good, but sometimes it depends on hosting server like dedicated servers and others. As per my suggestion it's good and helpful.

    That is a completely useless non-answer.

    Shared hosting is always good for a start up. Moreover you can migrate to a virtual private server at any point of time once you know about the whereabouts of shared hosting.
