  • Need a new host asap.

    I run a vBulletin Android Development forum that is massively growing.
    In the first two weeks we gained over 2,000 members, and 1.2 million hits.
    Our main source of traffic is another large development website, XDA-Developers.

    Our community runs vBulletin, with an ajax chat that takes toll on the server.
    We are currently suspended (surpass hosting on a VPS) and need to move to a stable host. something cheap would be nice.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT:

    Hi,

    looks like you need dedicated hosting and that isn't cheap you have two options

    1) unmanged dedicated this is cheaper BUT most likely you will have to pay extra if you ask for support (eg if you don't have the knowledge and knowhow to have root access then this isn't your thing)
    2) managed dedicated this depends on the host you choose carefully read there management terms on what they do and what not managed dedicated is more expensive

      I was recommended ASmallOrange's Cloud Server plan, for 35$.
      Any thoughts?

        I have been with asmallorange pretty much since it was started....

        Im not sure about the cloud plans yet as I have no experience with them... But I can recommend ASO in general. I started with them on a simple shared plan and now I own 3 dedicated servers hosted and managed with them. (and Im about to add another) They have always been helpful and gone above and beyond the call. They have helped me grow since my first forum.

        You can probably start on one of their VPS's (see here) and then look into what to do next. Once they see your traffic they can better recommend what dedicated you may or may not need. They have managed and unmanaged dedicated servers now as well. Mention my name (Joeychgo from LVC Media) - it might get you a little extra help. (no I dont get a commission)

          Are you running vB3 or vB4?
          My vB4 site consumes as many resources as my vB3 site which has 10x the traffic. Both are where on a VPS. I've since moved my vB3 site to a dedicated server with 4 times the RAM.

            Hi,
            I would contact www.urljet.com - they will give you a package suitable for your requirements. What makes them different to any other hosting provider you will find is that they specialize in vBulletin, and give you support that goes way beyond that of a normal host. They provide you with additonal features like hourly backups, LiteSpeed server technology (far superior than Apache), and a host of other features which you will not find elsewhere.

            I have been with them for well over a year and never had an issue, their managed vBulletin support goes far beyond that of any host I have been with to date. Support is available 24/7/365 - telephone, support desk and email. I have been with many top hosting providers over the years, and none of them even come close to URLJet.

            Many of the big boards I've seen around even state they are hosted by URLJet, when I mean big boards I refer to forums where 5000-8000+ users are online most of the time, even with this amount traffic, they run very quick because of all the optimization that URLJet does not only to your server but your vBulletin as well.

                  I wouldn't use hostgator because there servers are very overpriced compared to other datacenters, also cloud hosting isn't something you want because if your site gets large your going to pay 10x more in price than if you would of went and got a true dedicated server.

                  What is your budget, than I can recommend some good choices.

                            Just a note than LightSpeed isn't far superior than Apache. With the correct tuning, Apache can be more powerful, and resilient than LightSpeed.
