    Hello Fawaz,

    Very smart of you to browse around and ask on this web site (and others) for experiences with Globate.com hosting solutions in combination with vBulletin.

    If my memory is correct I helped a few customers in the last year to setup their vBulletin upgrade/installation and/or install some styles. The host was stable, fast and I had no issues. However, as I do not host my site(s) there personally that could be 'luck'.

    By just looking at their specifications on that page, FreeBSD is a good operating system, Apache is a nice web server, PHP 4.3.4 works with vBulletin, MySQL 4.0.13 works with vBulletin and they offer phpMyAdmin. If I see it right XML is enabled, and the server API is CGI (I don't prefer it to be CGI, but it shouldn't matter).

    curl, xml, gd and gzip/zlib are all available according to that page, so you should be able to run vBulletin.

    So yeah, vBulletin should run there without an issue. But that is no guarantee of course.

    What you perhaps could do is contact them and request them for a test account or to upload a file for you to run through a browser. This script will help you check if all requirements for vBulletin are in place.

    Here is the post with the script: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=103980 (vb_test.php)

    Hopefully someone with globate.com experience can give you more information then I could.

        Hello again,

        You're welcome and happy to hear you've confirmed they offer a no-good-money-back (30 days) guarantee. Perhaps get that through email, so you have it in writing.

        Good luck with the test and the server move, I'm sure things will work out just fine.

          I don't see SSH support anywhere, which you might want to use to backup your database, but for a small forum, it's not a big priority...
          Best Regards

              Good call. I remember the old days where every account came with telnet - but unfortunatly due to security being an issue these days more and more providers are only providing shell access through SSH2 on the much more expensive hosting solutions like managed/dedicated servers.
