    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 use Webnx.com but they are unmanaged. I have a pretty good system down for optimizing for xenForo I think.

    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.
