    Is a dedicated IP, such as on the bigger options on www.urljet.com/vbulletin-hosting.php really needed? In other words, if everything else is the same, does a dedicated IP make any difference?

    Which hosting you suggest?
    1st we want to start the forum first, which low cost hosting/ shared hosting
    but when the forum grow maybe we move to vps
    and then next to dedicated server

    if possible in single hosting company. so we did not having problems with moving the content.
    it is better if they can help moving the data fast/ no long downtime

    Thankyou

    I think marblehost services will be fine for running forums with.
    They are not pricey and reliable.

    Any other alternatives?
    They aren't far from where I work either, always thought that could be handy if things got out of hand like it has with previous hosts, but they have been fantastic.

    If it helps, we used to run vB4 with them (now XenForo) and according to analytics we get approx 30,000 page views per day, this is based on a forum with approx 2m posts. I mentioned above they host AVForums (15m+ posts!) which make us look tiny and they host them with ease

    Tim who runs Nimbus used to be the MD of Global Gold if that helps.

    Dave.

    We run a Large Forum, and webstore etc http://www.truckdriver-online.com

    We used to host with HostGator, and used to suffer fron slow forum loading, occassional hiccups, and some technical faults, so we decided to move to based in the UK.

    We use http://www.nimbushosting.co.uk as listed above.

    Great thing that persuaded us to move to them was they offered free forum migration service, I didnt have to lift a finger, and to top it all off the website/forum has never run smoother and faster, and wouldnt hesitate to recommend them.

    PLUS THEY ARE HALF THE COST OF HOSTGATOR!!!!!!! - Bonus

    Visit URLJet - they have some of the largest vBulletin forums they host featured on their frontpage. Some have over 10,000+ users online much of the time. They provide managed server and vBulletin hosting, so quite a bit different than your standard webhost.
