I have StopForumSpam, Project Honey Pot, CAPTCHA , Manual Approval enabled and registration timer set to 40 seconds.
My VPS server has the following specs:
60 GB Storage, 1 TB Monthly Transfer, 768 MB Guaranteed RAM, 1.5 GB Burst RAM, Hardware RAID 10 and is hosted by ServInt (their support is awesome by the way). The plan is called Essential VPS and costs me about $50/month.
Just yesterday they temporarily upgraded me after a downtime to see if my forum would do better on a higher plan and the site did do much better on their higher Signature VPS plan.
My question is: For a forum of my size isn't the current Essential VPS plan way too much? Or do I really need to upgrade?
Need some expert opinions please. I have also attached a Google Analytics report with this post. Thanks for your help.
