  • Sustainable hosting question

    Hi all,

    I am currently debating on buying the vB license and running a forum on a 4.2.2 platform (until 4.2.3 is stable). I am wondering, when I release my forums to the public what kind of hosting I will need. I am anticipating 100+ online users in the peak hours, even more. It is an old forum I am going to revive, used to be very popular. I don't want my forum to be slow, lag, or cause frustration to new members. I want them all to blaze through the pages and be satisfied with the speed on my end.

    I am asking what kind of hosting package will I need, VPS? What kind of specs

    Thanks!

    With a 100+ people you'll need a VPS with good virtualization, 2 GB of RAM and decent CPU. As your grow, you should be able to boost both RAM and CPU with a good company.

      Wayne, thanks for the reply!

      I am currently hosted under arvixe on a basic account. All my domains are on there, would their VPS support a fast vBulletin experience?

      I am assuming i'll have to use the third option @ $70/mo, maybe some add-ons too?

        They seem to support everything you need. However I can't vouch for their speed. That varies a lot among providers. Ask them to see a couple larger sites that they host. You could save yourself a bit of money and get the VPSClass product with a memory upgrade. It would only be $50 a month to start. If necessary then you could update later.

          Wayne, thank you. Right now since the CAD currency is much lower than USD, it's going to cost me more than the advertised price >.>. I might start with what you've suggested, however, the 3rd option just seems more sturdy, safer. I am afraid of hackers, spammers, ddos, etc; i am going to run a gaming community, and there is mutts around.
