    A better solution would be www.urljet.com

    They provide managed vBulletin Hosting across Shared, VPS or Dedicated packages - with 24/7 support and hourly backups. All servers are running LiteSpeed so instantly you have a gain in speed, since most hosts provide you with Apache only. As for where you are in the world, that isn't a problem either, they are partnered with a large CDN (Content Delivery Network) company which you can have added at no cost to you.

    Moving your site would not be a problem, they provide that service for free as well as many other services.

    I have been with them for over 18 months now, and not suffered any major issues - possibly a 15 minute outage due to a network issue. Server-wise they make sure you are setup correctly for vBulletin. You do pay that little extra, but for the service they provide it is well worth it.

    I have had my share of bad hosts over the years, but URLJet are a solid host.

    Sorry mate, I run a forum not a reseller of servers or web hosting, its not my gig. So yes, I need a bit of guidance in that area

    They're un-managed (have root access), so you'll have to do everything yourself. And yes it comes with Plesk.

    Open a support ticket with them, they might do if you ask nicely.

    Like CK suggested, I'd look into a dynamic/cloud server solution, especially if you're still growing. We use a Dynamic Cloud server from 1&1 Internet and it's as easy as logging into their adminCP and adding (or removing) more RAM, processor cores, and/or hard disk space. You're files aren't changed in the process. We've already had to do it a few times.

    Edit: Here's the link to the cloud server.

    Go contact Vidahost.com I always use [email protected] or [email protected], you'll either get Dom, Seb or Darren they're all really friendly. If you're in the UK give them a call as It's free phone and listed on the website. I've been with them 3 years now, they'll give you honest advice about what they can offer that's best for you. Tell them CK sent you their way.
