Looking for a new host solid with optimizing xF

Well-known member
I currently have a dedicated server in which I run my xF site and a few others small sites for some clients. I am looking for options and want to go with someone who is great for optimizing a server for xF.

I wanted to ask a few of those of you with larger xF sites as to some you may recommend. If that sort of thing is not allowed within the forum, please PM me.

I have two recommendations.

One, is the host we use for ValveTime.net but they only have UK servers which may be a bit pointless as I imagine most of your traffic is US based...

They are Nimbus Hosting: http://www.nimbushosting.co.uk/xenforo-hosting.php

The other recommendation is US based and I've heard good things about them.


The guy to speak to is registered here: Mike Edge

I can also definitely vouch for Nimbus Hosting, regardless where your visitors are from, the support and service is outclass.
Here is my current list of recommend host.
All of which I am either currently or have recently used personally for a minimum of 1 year (or more).

I pay $54 for a - Dual Intel Quad Core Xeon 5420, 2 x 500G, 8Gb ram, /29, CentOS 64, 100mbit unmetered.
And it's super speedy heh
Don't you think it's a lot? Could get that specs in 130$ or so. No RAID 1 is kind of risky.

Not really for the memory and an SSD. Backups are made nightly to the backup harddrive and then synced with a local computer. I'm going to be reducing it soon though since I just sold my largest site.
