  • Good hosts or didicated servers

    Hi im looking to get v bulletin but i want to either have a massive web hosting package or a good dedicated server. Im looking to launch a massive site (well try lol). Every dedicated server host only offers 40 gb of bandwidth a month and i dont know if thats good enough. Anyone on good hosts or servers that they would recomend?.

    a dedicated server should offer way more than 40gb of bandwith, my current dedicated server offers me about 1tb of bandwith a month _

      Yeah, there is no way a dedi only has 40GB of bandwidth. I can see that for shared hosting.

      And a bit of a suggestion, start with shared hosting first to see how your site fares. Theres no use in paying $100+ a month for a dedicated if your site only has two members. Wait til you get members and lots of activity before you even think of switching to dedicated.

        No i would rather get a dedicated server as i also plan on running a few other sites from it and transfering a few others to it. Where is it you are hosted zachery?

          I really don't think you need a dedicated server for 40GB. Look into this shared host:

          http://www.asmallorange.com/

          They host my site. The server I'm on is considered full and server load is rarely above 1.00.

            No im looking to host more than one site on the package and for that i think i nead a dedicted web server. I plan on adding to my sites and running around 10 of them which comes to over $100 anyway a month so im checking out my options the now.
            The webhost i have the now has a cpu of 4 is that bad?.

              Depends on the type of server.

              If you want to go dedi, I suggest you look at rackshack or servermatrix

                  You can host more than one site on your package at A Small Orange. You can either use Addon Domains or pay an extra $5 a month for WHM which allows you to make free standing cPanel accounts.

                    Not to be mean, but if you need to ask that you probably will not be able to run a dediated server.

                    Get a host that will let you host more then one site, mabye a reseller plan or something like that. If you need to move then learn how to secure and run a server or move to a managed dedicated server.

                      They have just earned a new customer lol. I looked over there prices and will just run them all on differnt packages until i am paying around $100 and then go dedicated. Also they say that soon ASO will be launching dedicated servers too.

                        You only need one package/hosting plan unless you need more than 150GB of bandwidth (which is the amount in the largest package/hosting plan). You can get reselling for an extra $5 a month and that will allow you to have mutiple sites on one package/hosting plan if you don't like Addon Domains.

                        By the way, tell them I sent you, there is a referral box for it.

                            Are you using 1and1? I would like to here from others that are using 1and1. I am thinking about moving to one of there managed accounts for $59 a month. But I would like to here from users that are using them and see how well their larger vBulletin's is running on there servers?
