I'm currently developing a website that, in my humble opinion, is unique and valuable enough to become quite successful. But i do have a concern; what do i do if my site becomes "too" successful? I dont have the money to buy my own data center, i simply have a webhost like anyone else, which obviously wont support a massive amount of traffic.
The catch 22 here is that i wont have the money to support a massive amount of traffic untill my site gets a massive amount of traffic. Is there a way to plan for success, so that success doesnt ruin my plans?

There are three things I can think of that might help. First, take a look at some of the help options available through companies like [channeladvisor.com...] and [digitalriver.com...] Just become familiar and think about whether what they offer might work for you. Second, if you know a lawyer or a banker (it's easy enough to talk to one for free if you don't) start getting familiar with the options available to people who have too much business and not enough money. It has happened before many times.
Third be sure to organize your facts and ideas in a way that can build into a business plan in case you might really get successful and need one.
