I've been stalking this Xenforo forum for about 6 months now and I like how the community gels and to me that's as important as the software (which I like btw).
I currently have a VB forum (yeah I know...) on a cheap shared plan with Bluehost - it doesn't get a great deal of use but it may "pick-up" one day (so it's not a big user of server resources ATM).
I have a new forum idea/subject and I want to run this one on Xenforo. So, I'm thinking of upgrading my Bluehost account to the "pro" version (still shared but supposedly better) and then parking my new XF forum along side my VB installation.
That way, I just have the one account with the two forums and if my new XF forum goes well in the future and starts outgrowing the shared resources, I may then move it to its own VPS or Dedi.
Is this idea ok for starters? Or, should I host my new Xenforo forum on it's own separate account from the beginning? Any feedback or ideas are welcome.
