    You'll need a dedicated server.

    A dedicated server with 80GB lasted me over a year and up to 1000 education blogs, but its 1GB memory ended up being the limit I hit first. Get more than that if you expect your site to be reasonably busy.

    Web space is nothing; memory is what you need. besides, the blogs themselves don't take up webspace - uploaded files do. ;)

    (Clarifying: yes, the blgos DO take up space in the databse and sometimes that counts towards your webspace.)

    Also, you can start with a VPS.
