    I may need to leave my host at end of this year because the special prepaid price I paid (1176. for two years)
    • 8 Gb RAM
    • 8 vCPU
    • 150 GB SSD Disk Space
    • 10 TB Bandwidth
    • Linux
    • cPanel
    • FULLY MANAGED
    will jump to 146. USD per month although supposedly they will offer me some sort of deal. I am happy with my host though, just don't want to pay 146. per month.

    If the "deal" they offer me at end of year isn't good enough, what else do people recommend for something equivalent where the LONG TERM costs will be lower?

        How much traffic do you get? How many people signed on at a time.

        But you see - when I compare the bigwetfish plan that is equivalent to what I have now, it is actually £169.00 GBP per month which is even more.

            I run more than four forums, but the issue is not the number of forums but the traffic. How many people are signed on at the same time on your forum? What kind of Alexa stats? How fast do the private messages load for you in the vbMessenger?

                When the two year prepaid plan ($1176. was what I paid) for the 8Gb server expired, I ended up prepaying for two years for a higher Gb server with the same outfit, Liquid Web. The choice was either pay full price less 30% on a monthly basis for an 8Gb server with Liquid Web (came to $102.20 per month), or discounted rate prepaid for two years for 16Gb server ($2280.), which came to about $7. less per month for a better server. This includes cPanel for 5 accounts. Fully managed, and their tech support is excellent.

                $2280. for two years (prepaid), VPS, includes cPanel for 5 accounts, fully managed:
                • 16Gb RAM
                • 8 vCPU Cores
                • 200 GB SSD Storage
                • 10 TB Bandwidth
                • Linux
                Looks like the 8Gb version of the above is now only $840. for two years, but in any case, at prepaid plan's expiration renewing on a prepaid basis for the same plan is not an option. Maybe in two years LW will let me renew for the lesser plan, prepaid?
