    Thanks for the great contributing posts. I agree with you guys also because I have been looking at losting for a long time now. The reason I mainly keep looking is the fact that the forum I want to move to vBulletin. Means the world to me.

    I am glad to see that you have recommended A Small Orange, I have been suggested that many times. I also know that if you go on any webmastering or webhosting forums members are going to through you cheap offers for lowsy hosting.

    This is something that is found on all of these types of forums, don't get me wrong though there are good members who generally help you. However you requesting hosting information just gets the resellers, and unproffesional sellers attention.

    Thats why I regsitered here, to get opinions from those who actually care about vBulletin hosting. Here there are obviously members who have high stat forums, and therefore have hosting opinions and facts.
    Just to echo this: I am very, very demanding of good service. When I was using shared, I always put my sites on separate plans, so high traffic at one wouldn't affect the other.

    In moving to the VPS-Extreme plan at HostICan, I put everything on one plan. Never regretted it. Runs like a fine Swiss watch. In talking with their customer service people, and the conversations get real geeky, I'm impressed by their absolute dedication to excellence and making sure the network infrastructure is as solid as possible.

    Peace,
    Gene

      I do beleive that HostICan is a good hosting company, however it would help me allot of I heard this from allot more vBulletin users. If you know what I mean. I would also like to compare information and stats not pricing with certain companies.

        HostICan is a small company, so I don't know how many people around here use it, although they are certainly good with database-driven stuff. My suggestion is that you take the Google trip and see what others think about them and other companies. That's always a good way to get wide-ranging information.

        Peace,

          I have posted many request topics in a certain decent webmastering forum, however because I was requesting I was getting allot of offers that I didn't really need. However I have just posted an new thread asking if they have any experience with HostICan and if they have feedback. I will see what information I can get from there. I should get some quaity information as I always get my questions answered there.

          I am up for HostICan, I just want to do more reasearch. I would also like to browse through forums that are very popular and have loads of activity that are hosted on them servers. Hopfully I can get my descion done soon, so I can get a start on moving to vBulletin.

            I don't frequent that many webhosting forums and agree with you regards the potential for cheap offers to be thrown at you for lousy hosting.

            What I did was to search various hosts using WebHosting Talk and the vB forums, and when I found the host I was interested in, checked the offers forum at WHT to see if I could find a deal that suited me. It worked out a treat! I certainly would never entertain in your face selling of webhosting via any forum and tend to distrust reviews unless they are backed up by several people - that is why I referred you to WHT. I intended not that you start a topic, but that you do a search for reviews instead. Fortunately my current host passed all my tests - they have a superb reputation which was stated over and over again on WebHosting Talk. I guess it's case of checking out everything as much as you can ... as you state, our vB forums are important to us.

            I hope you find suitable hosting and again, good luck!

              Yikes

              I am new to this forum but not to vBulletin, free websites(beware) or computer developement. In fact, I must have 3 or 4 free websites that give me access trouble or don't have the tools to look really professional! Consequently, I don't use them. I tried to edit one today and my computer went wacko with Active X, FTP etc. which are all installed on it. I need more memory. I need a good Host that is inexpensive and has all the features (editing etc) Any Feedback appreciated

                    So it's not only me... IMHO, one should be very wary of posting on WebHostingTalk too. I was shocked to find WebHostingTalk, IMHO, engaging in blatantly arbitrary censorship. Here's the text directly from their ridiculous "rules" which should place fear into anyone posting there:

                    "We reserve the right to remove, modify or move posts at our discretion and without explanation."

                    It's no secret to me now how even traces of criticism of WHT disappear from their forums. IMHO, the text there simply cannot be trusted.

                      The other problem is that they have vested interests -- quite possibly because they are advertisers -- and if you write too much verbiage against the prevailing winds, you'll wind up in trouble.

                      Believe me, I have actually talked to their executives, including the parent company's CEO, and found them extremely difficult to deal with.

                      Peace,
