    vBulletin (Owned License)
    I would like information about what comes with purchasing 3.6.8 and if there is a newer version or even a better forum software for the price then vbulletin right now in your honest opinion.
    The owned vBulletin Forum license allows you to run the software on your site indefinitely. Along with this license, you will receive one year of free updates. Beyond the first year, you will have to pay a nominal fee, currently $30, to obtain updates for an additional year.

    This license includes free support via email and on the community forum.Phone Support is not included in the license price but may be purchased for an additional cost either at the time of initial purchase, or afterwards through the Members' Area.

    vBulletin (Leased License)
    The leased vBulletin Forum license allows you to use the software on your site for 1 year and gives you access to products updates for that year. After 1 year, you must renew your license or remove the software from your site.

    This license includes free support via email and on the community forum. Phone Support is not included in the license price but may be purchased for an additional cost either at the time of initial purchase, or afterwards through the members' area.
    I don't know about other forum softwares, i didn't need the research since I'm very happy with vbulletin... I've had no serious problems, and when I needed it the help was A+++ category. Friendly, quick, and efficient.
    Is the best 160$ I've ever spent ^^ no regrates what so ever.

    I would also like to know who to get hosting from(as in who is competitvely priced and how much are ball park figures on traffic for 50,000 members)..how much bandwidth would one need...
    When my site had about 50k visits a day it would drain about 12gbs (each day). But my sites is rather special as most post are very long (50k+ characters) and one of the most visited post has around 1 million characters visited 10k a day :S) Currently with about 70~75kpeople each day around 19~20gbs a day :S (I wonder why my server wants us there so much)
    So it will probably be less for other people

      yah, i'm thinking of an automotive forum with pictures and avatars and what not..so that would be a lot of bandwidth, but that is another thing i have to deal with. At your 50k visits a day what was your hosting cost if you don't mind me asking....

      I will definitely be purchasing vbulletin...if you know of nasioc.com that uses vbulletin and it's search problems that it has(150,000members)...are these search issues related to vb?

      if you have time pm me some prices you paid for hosting will ya I am trying to get off my feet without a loan or partners

      I appreciate your help, I am just trying to add up costs...dreamweaver(or other prog), registering site, hosting site, moderating site...etc EEEk
