  • Need suggestions for hosting of my forums

    Theyre getting big, and im expecting a influx of users soon
    were currently on virtual host but its SLOOOOOOOOOOOOW

    gonna have to go dedicated server


    i have about 60-150 users online concurrently. 5000 members atm - expecting up to about 10,000

    any ideas for good hosting deals?

    check out the dedicated packages at www.venturesonline.com

    regardless of where you go, with the much traffic, make sure you don't get stuck with an IDE or EIDE hard drive. They don't take too well to overuse.
    Also, if you're going to double your concurrent users, make sure and get at least 1 Gb RAM.

    what's the big event that will double your numbers?

          I don't know, Martin. You might be better off with the cream pie in the face.

              venturesonlines.com is where i'm hosted too on a dual p3 866, 768mb ram 18gb scsi server

              i'd say go dual p3 933 with 1gb ram and a 36GB scsi drive, that should keep your users and site happy

                  you upgraded to 2GB ram ? cool

                  i was assuming that 5k members = 150 users and 10k members = 300+ users assuming members

                  pageviews don't tell alot when it comes to vB?

                  150 users viewing 100 pages per day = 15,000 pages/day

                  vs

                  500 users viewing 30 pages per day = 15,000 pageviews/day

                      well, I average about 200 or so mostly all day, peaking for a few hours/day at 300, then there are freddies boards, too.

                      my site alone gets about 100k pv/day right now. it's been steadily increasing since June.

                      the number of pageviews definitely counts into the server you need.
