      Thanxx for the HeadsUp! That is one common thing I've picked up in perusing the forums on here: Find a good host and save yourself some headaches. For now, from all I've read, it looks like our group will probably go with A Small Orange as a HOST.

      Many Thanxx to all who replied, to this thread as well as others about general inquiries of the available HOSTs out there to choose from!

        Perfect choice indeed.. You won't regret it.

          If you're not comfortable with installing vBulletin you can hire someone from vBulletin to do it for you. This service is available during and after purchase for $135.

            Linux is a operating system. It is not a web host, think of it just like Windows

              Linux is generally preferred for running a server. It by itself is not a web host.

                Just look for a shared web host account

                  Nope, I recommend to find a hosting provider that offers shared hosting accounts on a linux box, that offer apache as web server, php for the programming language and mysql as the database. This is what vbulletin requires.

                    No, Just look for a host on the Internet that you pay to upload vBulletin too. All you need to start with is a shared host account. That will cost around £40-65 year. Depending on how much space and bandwith you want to start off with. I pay £67 year for my host top share "Platinum" account. Which is nether here or there as a one of payment for a years shared hosting paid up front.

                    just to give you a rouge guideline

                      I just wanted to report back that we ended up going with A Small Orange (http://www.asmallorange.com/) for a HOST. Their 'Tiny' plan allows us to start at a great rate (just $2/mo) and allows us to grow whenever we need to one of these days.

                      Things I particularily liked about them were: 1)All the positive comments I read from actual users on several forums, 2)The vBulletin 3.5.x Optimization Guide in the 'Getting Started' forum, 3)The fact they didn't limit our emails/hour as some HOSTs do, and finally 4)Their own ASO Forums with lots of Q&A's.

                      Anyway, I did manage to get vBulletin installed there alright and so far things are working well for us.
                      Cheers, AD
