    Hey everybody!
    I'm about to start my company's website/forum using XenForo, but first I have a few questions.
    1) What are some good web hosts to host on?
    2) Does XenForo have a shop built in (or an addon) to make people be able to buy subscriptions using PayPal, and right after they finished the payment, they are instantly upgraded to VIP and allowed to download a certain file?
    3) Is there any way to have a "Home" tab that is not a forum tab? Where it's just like a website's front page?

    Thank you very much,
    Have a great day.

    Hosting is largely down to personal preference. As long as they comply with the requirements, it's up to you who to go for. The requirements are listed here: http://xenforo.com/purchase/

    User upgrades are built in: http://xenforo.com/help/user-upgrades/

    Yes - you can easily create such a tab and page various ways. I use a XenForo Page node for my home page.

    Onimua, of http://xenfluence.com has created a store add-on that is currently in alpha testing. You can see a preview of it on Xenique when the site is back up (Which is soon hopefully -_-).
