            The BEST host

            I have my forums hosted with

            I can honestly say that realwebhost is the absolute best host I have ever seen. They're customer support is EXCELLENT. They're prices are UNBEATABLE.

            I recomend Real Web Host for any hosting application.

            YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED!!!!!!!!

                    i'm on dedicated plan #1 w/ 512MB RAM... sharing with one other person to help with costs. i end up paying $100 a month.

                    i've done lots of little things to increase performance of my forums: gzip output, font classes, removing many of the images from the templates, etc.

                      Of the hosts you listed, I would avoid and Buznet because they claim to offer unlimited bandwidth. That is generally a sign of a poor host, because there is no such thing as unlimited bandwidth.

                      I've been kicked off of a lot of servers due to my traffic. Keep in mind that bandwidth is only part of the issue. Your forum will be resource intensive, and this will cause hosts to dislike you. With up to 70 users online at a time, you may be in need of a dedicated server.

                      One of our forums has an average of 80 users online at a time, and in peak hours goes up to around 150. That forum uses 3 gigs bandwidth per day, although with gzip it cuts that in half.

                      We are with VenturesOnline and have a #4 dedicated server. They are by far the best host we've ever had.

                        I use the new V650 plan and I am very , very happy with them and there support is very good. I got this because my site has decent traffic 75 users on at one time in peak hrs and average of 20 most other times and it is very fast even at peak times and haven't noticed one bit of down time and we have been with them almost a month so far .
