That's another concern.  Most of what Ben listed, while great advice, requires 
a dedicated server.

How well does Drupal scale (number of users or number of nodes) for cases when 
you're on a shared host, and so don't have access to opcaches, db 
replication, etc?  How can one squeeze the most performance out of a shared 
hosting environment?  I don't know the answer that that, personally, but if 
someone does, please point me to the handbook page (or write one if it 
doesn't exist).

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
