    Our forums is rather small, been out for ~6 months and has 2,884 messages, 160 users. Apart from xenforo it will run a backup every 12 hours internally and remotely, do you think that the KS-2 plan from here will be sufficient or should I get a higher plan?

    I assume you don't use Cpanel, DirectAdmin or Plesk?
    If using stack LAMP or LEMP setup it should work fine.

    I meant why is it required..

    Anyways,
    what do you recommend, i meant if it isnt enough power i can upgrade to the next level or high but just looking for the cheapest and easiest option (bit of a noob)...

    oh also it will be accepting backups every 2 hours (only 15gbs before zipped.) from my other server.

    KS-2 plan is a bit slow.
    If your budget can afford KS-4 then go with it.
    KS-4 can handle even a medium size forum.

    hey guys the KS-2 plan just came available, just wanted to get any final opinions on whether it can handle a small-medium xenforo site considering you have to pay setup fees as well.
