    Sounds good, are you on a dedicated server or one of their VPS packages?
    They use a VPS.

    Any problems (which have been very very few) have been rectified quickly.

    Our forum is roughly 400-500 on at any one time (including guests).
    1700 members per day
    250 threads per day
    3000 posts per day

    Don't have any slowdowns either, and the server copes with the times we've had stupidly high peaks too, without breaking a sweat.

    I took out a plan with GlobalGold yesterday and Tim has been most helpful in getting everything moved over from my old server.
    Highly recommended!

    After reading all of the positive comments about Global I just called Tim and I must say that I was rather impressed.

    So I have decided to move and hopefully the service will be as good as everyone has said.

    Tim was very helpful and in fact he is going to do the move himself which is a surprise to me. I have always done this myself and thought what the hell, I can sit back and relax and let Tim take care of it.

    I guess I will know in a few days how things are working and I will update this later if anyone is interested in Global feedback.

    I am in Canada and just transferred from GoDaddy over to GlobalGold. I could NOT be happier. The service with Tim is the best I've ever experienced for any kind of product. All the problems and errors I was having with Godaddy are now GONE. I highly recommend them for a vBulletin host!!!!

    Exactly. Just a guide really.

    I guess I need to contact them and find out.

    Made my decision easy, I was just looking for a joint to hose me.

    Done.

    They will even install VB for free.

    Done and done.
