      Before moving servers have you put in an optimization request?

      I would do that before anything. - Forum Hosting at it's best! Email [email protected] and find out more!

        I think the configurations mentioned are too low for a site of that kind of traffic. You would need good dedicated servrer with dual / quad processors - Opteron/ Xeon and preferably 4GB - 6 GB RAM. That is from my experience, managing a forum with 1000+ users online at a time. Another option is to have a separate database server. 700 users online is good traffic and you need a good server to avoid sluggish performance.

            The key to any decent vB hosting is SAS (SCSI) drives on a minimum of RAID 1.
