Ideal locations would be:
Ideal control panel would be
- Direct Admin
- Big on freedom of speech
- OK with adult content
- Allows for challenge of DMCA Notice (or defers such to our discretion)
- Allows for backups
- Allows for semi - long running scripts (for example, rebuilding search or rebuilding cache. Not something done regularly & is only done manually when I'm working on the site, but when done usually around 12 AM - 4AM)
- Well supported & managed (though we never need it when things are working as expected, its nice to know its there)
- will allow for more than 1 domain name (4 total)
- will allow symlink across those domain names (we use it for static content for cookie less domain)
- Current software (php 5.4 with plans to move to php 5.5 when released)
Main site is web forum community with an active 100 members online. Traffic varies between 20 - 1000 guest (average would be 150).
- Affordable (not to mimic a household utility bill)
1 Dedicated IP (but preferred).
