  • Looking for a VPS or maybe a big shared hosting plan, please help.

    Hi guys,

    Well my actual hosting is giving me a little problems since some time ago, because they told me that my forum was or is using a lot of resources in the server (memory and process), so I optimized it, but I decided to change to another hosting.

    I think my forum is not so big to pay a VPS, but maybe I am wrogn, check ir here. This is my forum: www.all-reefs.com/inicio/index.php

    Also the problem is that the bandwith of yesterday and today is a little more than 4 GB and the plan that I have of my hosting have 40 GB, so I don´t want to upgrade to the next plan, that is why I am looking a new hosting.

    With my actual hosting I have 6 GB od pace and 40 GB of Bandwith

    I have 2500 registered users, 520 active users, 600 visits in 24 hrs. (users, guests and bots) and in a time maximum I have 45 users connected (with bots and guests) in the forum.

    Ok so please recommend me a good hosting and if you think that I need a VPS instead of a big shared hosting ??, for the situation I can´t pay a VPS but if I really need it and don´t have a choice, no problem I will do it.

    Thank you a lot in advance!!

    Don't go by the amount of members or the amount of posts that you have, go by the amount of concurrent users, i.e. the amount of users that are using your forum at any specific time. Of that number is 45 then you do not need a VPS, you simply need a decent host.

    Go for a relatively well known company like Hostgator, I was with them at the start and didn't have one single problem. I had more than 45 concurrent users and they never complained about it once.

    Here's a group of good shared host packages...

      Does your forum use excessive upload/download of huge attachments?

          That's really fishy. Are you sure that there's no hacker stealing your bandwidth with his bots? Check your Awstat to see where your bandwidth is getting used up.

              When you go to your CPanel >> Awstats, can you post what you see there?

                I see this in the awstats:

                DAY VISITS PAGES HITS BANDWIDTH
                01 Apr 2009 816 11216 63381 2.07 GB
                02 Apr 2009 140 15309 848 321.99 MB

                Total of Bandwith: 2.329 GB


                But in the cPanel say this:

                Bandwidth monthly Transfer: 5142.12/40960 MB

                      Here is the screenshoot:

                      http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/3...sbandwidth.jpg

                      You will see there 2.39 GB

                      But in the cPanel home say this:

                      Bandwidth monthly Transfer: 5142.12/40960 MB

                      in the cPanel home are almost 3 GB more than the awstats!!!!

                              Look through your stats there, you should be able to see where all the bandwidth is being used at.
