  • Help Switching to The Right Server

    Ok i hope i'm posting this in the right section

    Currenty my forum has Threads: 24,481, Posts: 500,315, Members: 6,240 (i was supposed to have something liek 15000 members but i deleted who ever wasn't active)

    and about (like right now) close to 200 people online (including spiders)

    My Server is :
    P4 2.8 (2 cpu)
    1 GB RAM
    Dual 80GB HD
    100Mbit Port
    1500Gb Bandwidth
    cPanel/WHM
    $180 mo

    and my host is suggesting
    Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHz
    2Gb Ram
    2 X 120GB Drives
    100Mbit Port
    1500Gb Bandwidth
    cPanel/WHM

    for 240$

    Is the second server really that good compare to the other one? (yeah i trust my hostime company but this time i'm not too found in the core 2 duo) so that's why im asking you guy sfor help.

    And how's the price? i wanna know cause i don't make that much $ of my site so i don't want to waste my money

    Thanks!

    Those prices are kind of high, You could get away with using a high end vps or a low end dedicated like your using but with more ram.

      1 GB of RAM to the server, the cost is $40 a month or $270 one-time :-/

          I guess around $20 per GB of ram. Your price is okay, if they are providing managed services.

          My recommendations - theplanet for self managed hosting and liquidweb for managed hosting.
          Hosting Coupons: Hostmonster @ $3.95 and 20% off Mediatemple
