    I've been reading all the web hosting forums here and it's been confusing.

    Somebody suggested A Small Orange but it is not mobile friendly, will that affect much if I have Xenforo?

    Been thinking of InMotion, HawkHost as well.

    Could you help?

    We would prefer the following:
    around $5 per month
    based in US
    mobile friendly

    Our private community is around 100-150 members right now. Been using Ning but plan to migrate to Xenforo. We already purchased the license but can somebody help us with the webhosting suggestions?

    I recommend @Mike Edge. Excellent support and hardly any downtime.

    I did not have much luck with the host recommended in above post. Lost money. Lost data. Details in my signature.

    I use it and if I'm not mistaken, when I hired @MattW he was so impressed he started using them too.

    Liteally 100% uptime for several years now and support responses within seconds.

    Honestly your pricing is a little out of sorts. Your high-end package is close to the cost of some of the lower-end dedicated servers from such companies as Namecheap and Dreamhost.

    Disregard. I didn't see the $5/month part. :D

    For somebody who is not familiar with all the computer software languages, it is really helpful to know which webhosting you use.
    I've read about Nimbus but this is UK based.
    A Small Orange - not mobile friendly.

    HawkHost or InMotion anyone?

    Is unmanaged VPS ok?

    I'm on Hostigation, and find them very reliable. $15/mo for a decent VPS.

    If not, HostUS.us is also good...

    Don't mind him, search his posts.. He complains about every host he has used.

    Searching, you will find many recommending us.. Always someone not happy regardless how much you go out of your way for them. That's just part of business, sadly.

    Yet he is the only one where I lost data and money. Must be incredible bad luck.

    Let's just leave that there. You've had you say on it; anyone curious about it can read the previous discussion.

    Small orange is no more or less mobile friendly than another host:) the website itself is what decides mobile friendliness, presuming the speed is decent, been a while since I used small orange, but they were blazing fast for my xenforo forums when i was there.

    I have been using digitalocean for almost 1.5 years now and no real downtime they work perfect, installing Xenforo is not that difficult either if you are little technical.

    I can help you out for free to set it up if you need some help or here is a guide I made to set it up with hhvm works pretty fast that way: Tutorial: Install XenForo using Nginx and HHVM on Fedora.
