    Well, as we have mentioned on our forums several times, our limit is 40 concurrent users averaged over the month (ex: 20 min, 60 max at times). Never was it mentioned you'd be doing 150 users at times (minimum 50).

    Posted by two individuals in different threads on WebHostingTalk about this issue:

    a rackshack server should be fine, just make sure you get someone who know how to use it.

    Actually, I think the issue of large sites has nothing to do with Zeonhost at all. Virtually every reputable provider of shared/virtual hosting that I know has limits on site volume whereby they tax the shared server and should appropriately be moved to a dedicated server.

    Although 0.30 may not be considered high with some other hosts, we have higher standards, and a single web site which brings the load from 0.04 to 0.30 (our max per server for all users is less than 1.00) is causing a problem.

      Like I said at the end of my message, Zeonhost is a great host for the price, for smaller vBulletin installations. And I'd certainly consider them again for smaller installations.

      But if you expect your site to grow to moderate size, all I'm saying is: plan ahead.

      And in the spirit of sharing experiences that may help other users out there, I've shared mine.

      I'm certainly not one of those guys who will drone on endlessly about "what a sucky host someone was" or whatever. I've seen you guys do an excellent job, and in fact I was extremely impressed with the level of support offered throughout our experience. Having said that, I was a bit put off by the large number of unannounced reboots (which, as I understand it, is an extremely rare occurrence), and admittedly, we were larger than we anticipated after our move. It appears that ezBoard seriously under-reports the number of "current users".

      ezBoard never reported more than 55 users on our board at one time, and our first day on vBulletin with a redirect from ezBoard, we hit more than 120. So, while we passed on what we thought were valid numbers, we were grossly wrong, and I feel definitely partly to blame for that. We made our choice for host based on invalid numbers.

      So, let's call it a draw.
