Hey, I was thinking of buying a server for storing my app's data. I am confused in regard to what type of server is to be bought with what sort of storage and bandwidth and whether it should be a shared server or not. Is it the same as the one bought for hosting websites or is it different? My app will get a maximum of 80 users at best. Also is it possible to use that single server for storing my app's data as well as for hosting a site?

80 is a really small number. How much data will each user store? It sounds as if even a shared server will be able to store the app data and hosting whatever site you have.

Yes by my estimate the total app data may not even reach 1 GB, but my concern is whether a single shared server can host a website as well as store my app's data and database.

The answer, of course, is: it depends. What is the web site like? Meaning, how many concurrent users are there, what are they doing, how much storage do they need.

I host the backend of my app (which has many more users per day than 80) along with a web site in a Tomcat instance that is just one of many on that server.

Hi, Its totally depend on your app server you have used while developing like MySQL and its depend on your app server. Your user is not enough so you can base package for your app.
If you want to to know more about then you have to provide me some useful details for your app. So, I can help you in better manner.

Thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
