Host Suggestions

Discussion in 'Server Configuration and Hosting' started by David Gardiner, Dec 6, 2010.

  1. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good web host for a xenoforo forum, smallish forum so shared hosting, say circa $10/mth.

    Currently with hostgator but having xenforo performance issues.

    don't expect much with $10/month ..
     
  3. Whats ballpark for "ok" shared hosting, i.e. not vps, 20-30 ?

    To get good performance you need to go the VPS route ... there are several that offer managed service with Cpanel and all :) .... Shared hosting is unpredictable even from reputable hosts because you are at the mercy of your next door neighbor

    I would say go VPS, but then again, I sell VPS and dedicated servers :/

    I can suggest you to Dreamhost. I am working with them and have 8 website on one hosting package. Some of them small web sites and some of them medium. Never had any problem with them. Also i can give you a promo code if you want, so you can get almost %50 price cut down. ;)

    VPS is overkill for a lot of small forums.

    Sure if the OP can justify spending £30+ per month on a hobby site then fine.
    Otherwise, shared hosting is adequate and isn't the root of all evil as it's made out to be on here a lot of the time.

    I've used shared hosting for a few years with no problem apart from the occasional slowdown or hiccup.

    ServInt is a great host. They probably told someone in 'passing' to cancel the account.

    My lowest shared account is $15 a month...

    Having full control of your own site is well worth $20-40 a month.

    I would ask hg to migrate you to a different server. While we had issues when we were with them, performance certainly was not one of them.

    Save your money, most small forums run on shared hosting just fine. Sure it is possible for shared hosting to go offline from time to time, but most maintain an 99.8/99.9% uptime (better than my Comcast cable internet :D).

    As Dean said, try talking to your hosting provider. Namecheap (yeah, they also have hosting) listened to our problems over at a forum I'm a moderator on. Although it took 24-hours.

    Urljet is good for small forums. They give you vb and xf related support too. I also recommend asmallorange. For large sites, I really recommend ServInt. They are really good. I am with them now even if my sites not really that big.
