I'm with Liquid Web now, managed dedicated. I can't say enough about their customer service, it really is top notch! Yet when I go look at WiredTree.com, because Anthony Parsons just switched to them, their pricing is a little better. I don't know if what I have is "outdated", "good" or "better" than what WiredTree offers. Sometimes my forum seems slow, or I'm "waiting", but I really don't know. If I work on anything else, like installing another test forum, it really seems to drag my forum down. I did try to upgrade my test 3.8 to the current 4 (just to see , I do have my XenForo license ) and it made the forum horribly slow.
My real problem is that I really don't understand and need some input. I try looking for information to understand the differences between the types of servers, but I'm just not finding what I need to understand.
I run a Coast Guard spouse support forum and website. Compared to your websites, it appears very primitive, but it works for me. I would like to update it, but I just don't have the time to tackle that now.
It's a private site, but I am willing to give you access to the forum.
There are about 75-150 members on the forum at any given time.
