Okay all, I'm getting ready to get my license here and I have some questions on which steps to take exactly. I am currently using Host Gator for my WP Membership site. There won't be much to transfer so my hosting with HG will be basic. Can someone tell me if I'm on the right track with this hosting package (starting from scratch)? VPS: CPU: 0.56 GHZ RAM: 384 MB Disk Space: 10 GB Bandwidth: 250 GB The second package up is this: VPS: CPU: 0.84 GHZ RAM: 576 MB Disk Space: 22 GB Bandwidth: 375 GB Will the first package be sufficient to get me started? As far as lay-out (theme?) goes the only forum I have found so far that I like is http://general-forums.com. There is another layout I like a lot, but it's a vB site (sorry), http://www.zenhex.com (although I do not like the colors on either of these). Does XF install the software on my server and does anyone know how I can get my site to look like the above? And lastly, I'm planning to buy a forum that fits well with my niche to help get my forum started. Does anyone know a source that sells forums or has anyone used http://www.paidforumposting.com? Thanks!
