    As I said earlier in this thread, I've been using Servage (won't bother to put in a link again, since moderators tend to change them) for some time, and I'm extremely happy with all they can deliver and also the service level.
    I was investigating Dreamhost also at the time, and from my impression the both deliver the same package, but Servage have Swedish representation so they "won"

    /p

    Ditto... They were a complete disaster, in the roughly 4 months my site was hosted with them it was off-line 8 times because of server or database glitches.

    Since switching hosts over a year ago I've had zero problems.

    Yahoo webhosting?

    FFS why spend a fortune on decent forum software, then put it on utter tripe like Yahoo and GoDaddy? If you want to use these third rate services, why not just get free software? vBulletin will NEVER work satisfactorily on these terrible hosting services.

    You can get much better hosting from reputable specialist hosting companies for less than $5 a month.

    vBulletin 4.0, Is this possible in Yahoo Webhosting?
    Unfortunately you won't be able to run 4.0 as the system requirements aren't met. You can read the minimum system requirements in FAQ - What are the system requirements for vBulletin?

    Hostgator used to have 25 simultaneous users limit on shared server accounts. Check this first before signing up if your forum has active traffic.

After several calls and emails begging for common sense, Yahoo agreed they were in the wrong and dropped "past due" charges.

    Two lesson learned:

    1. Never sign up for webhosting with your domain registrar OR do not register a domain with your webhoster. Keep the two separate.

    2. Keep old emails pertaining to business or any money transactions for at least 5 years.


    thanks for the advice,,,,I'll need to keep that in mind when I transfer to hostgator.

    I've got no idea how large your site is but at least think about moving, I have no particular love for hostgator but that is who we use and it works. Tech support answers quickly too.

    It may be possible that yahoo allows things that HG does not that you are using. HG does not appear to be any more expensive. There are many hosts available for you to pick from.

    Geocities is closing on OCTOBER 26, 2009. Expect that many customers will be in yahoo webhosting..

    How can we convince Yahoo to upgrade their php 4 to php5? From anyone in Vbulletin team can tell them? As customer in Yahoo webhosting. What we can do?
