  • Poll of top choices for hosting

    Okay, I can't screw this up...got to get a top notch hosting company cause I don't want to move again. So I've created a poll with what appear to be the top choices from user comments and other research. Please select your top choice and feel free to give reasons why (or why not for another) in a post.

    Also I have several sites to host, so is there a caution about doing a "reseller" plan that would allow me to host several vBulletin sites under one account? Thanks for all your input! You all ROCK!

      First I've seen of them. Are you affiliated with them in anyway or do they host your site?

        http://www.valleyhosting.com

        They don't host me, but they host 4 forums which I work on, and as long as I can remember, they were never down.

        Great support aswell, and a very fast server.

          I've done much research on the subject before settling with my host, but from that list, the only two that stand out as quality hosts would be ASmallorange, and Geeky Designs. But I haven't personally tried either. Most of the others I haven't even heard about.

          And there's nothing wrong with hosting multiple vB sites under a same host, as long as all your sites together dont' get too much traffic and don't use up too much CPU, and as long as you have a separate vB license for each site (but that goes without saying)

            No, they are supposted to be the best, don't choose Dreamhost to host a forum

              Their website information looks very good. Impressive facility setup. I wish I could edit the poll, I'd add them to the list. Thanks.

                Any more information on Geeky Designs? Are they adding sites? I like the idea of hosting with guy that knows vBulletin so well.

                  I have been using Real WebHost for a year in August and I would never change.

                    While we're not actually hosted with Geekydesigns (only because we need a dedicated server), I would definitely recommend them. Zach has done an excellent job of taking care of our server since we moved to it a few months ago.

                      Zachary, you're getting a rep as a webhost now.

                      Be nice that there are more vBulletin friendly webhosts. Who not only will accept vB on their servers, know the software itself (and it's mods). Then the server is tuned for vBulletin performance, not just a generic one.

                      vBulletin is creme-de-creme forumware, it needs the same type of webhosts who view the forumware more than a slot to be filled.

                        We switched to RealWebHost for our forum some time ago and have had excellent service.

                          'm hosted on Realwebhost, I have been with them for a long time and have now bought a dedicated server with them .. I host several vbulletin forums with them (mine and resellers).

                          Their support it superior to all other hosts, I'd agree with the post above "Excellent service" no doubt.
