    If the demo is working fine where I'm able to add forums and add avatars, does that mean my computer is capable to run the vbulletin forum?

    No it does not, and I would strongly recommend against hosting a forum on your pc, unless you have a very good connection and near 100% uptime.

      You should be using a hosting company. How many users are you likely to be supporting on this forum?

      If it is something on an intranet that you can calculate your load and usage then by all means, but if it is a public board that you have no metrics on size and scalability then you will need to have this on a legitimate server with a good connection and lots of memory.

        I'm expecting anywhere between 200 to 1000 forum members, and maybe many visitors. So in other words I should purchase a dedicated server?

        I have this server from Dell, PowerEdge T100Dual Core Intel® Pentium®E5400, 2.70GHz, 3MB Cache, 1066MHz FSB
        PowerEdge T100 Memory2GB, DDR2, 800MHz, 1x2GB,Dual Ranked DIMMs
        Primary Hard Drive160GB1 7.2K RPM SATA 3Gbps 3.5-in Cabled Hard Drive
        Is this good enough? Do I need an operating system on the server?

        Thanks for your help

            Okay, I noticed Godaddy.com does the web hosting but which plan do I need based on the forum that I anticipate to form? As I said I anticipate 200 to 1000 members

            thanks
