Great question! Given the specificity of your requirements, I would recommend that you start with our VPS Hosting plan - especially if you're going to be using NodeJs for package management purposes. 

I've successfully installed Laravel and done basic work on a Shared Hosting plan, but you're going to find yourself limited by the server's default settings - if you need to change or customize any extensions beyond their default, you'll end up needing to upgrade anyway and I think any serious Laravel optimization is going to require that level of control. 


I checked a PHP 8.0 phpinfo page on one of our Shared Hosting server, and of the modules you listed as enabled, but a few like Enchat are not, so my personal recommendation is to just start with the VPS from the beginning so that you can better customize your PHP settings. Hope that helps!
