    Anyone to know good reliable hosting for Xenforo, and one more question it is better to not enable suhosin on server.

    XenForo will work on nearly any host without issue.

    Pick one within your budget. :)

    Nimbus Hosting is phenomenal, we are considered a big board and they have been extremely helpful in every aspect.

    You won't be disappointed, speak with Tim and tell him Rob sent you.

    Unless you plan on using CDN, it would probably be beneficial to state where your target audience would be (of if worldwide where the majority of your audience will be based at).
    For most of mine the U.K. would be a poor choice due to longer response time (since I'm in the U.S.).

    Judging by the reviews of his customers they seem very happy with him and he specialises specifically with xenforo which would be a bonus if you have any side problems as I've known him to help others with add-on issues (correct me if I'm wrong mike).

    Definitely Mike's hosting:

    The security level of his hosting is much better than other companies

    What do you mean?
    A customer was being hacked several times before migrate his site to Mike hosting (and he was running under a shared hosting account, not VPS or dedicated server with root access). Mike didn't make any changes to the files and since then no new hack attemps were reported.

    Probably there was/were some other application(s) on the previous site with security hole(s).

    @Mike Edge , which are the security features of your hosting?

    We use CageFS from CloudLinux, which puts each user in it's own virtual cage where no user can see another user nor inject/symlink to them. Sort of like having a VPS, but you have access to more overall dedicated server resources as your just caged in the server rather then being in a VPS with only the resources assigned to that container. Along with the common things that all servers should do like CSF, default SSH port disabled, PHP hardened etc.

    Thanks Shelley :) That is correct we also help install add-ons and styles, try to help troubleshoot add-ons, free version upgrades and have even migrated some customers from other platforms to xenForo for free.

    There is no "xenForo based hosting". In theory, any host which fulfills the requirements of xenForo can run it without problems. And for the record, most hosts do.

    We consider our self a "managed xenForo solutions provider". Correct in theory most hosts can indeed host xenForo. But a lot of host, more so the big names like GoDaddy, Hostgator etc.. You start to run into exceeded resources when your community grows beyond a handful online. As Shelley pointed out, we also help troubleshoot add-ons, do version upgrades, install styles etc if our clients request it, unlike a high majority of those "theory" hosts would or even know what xenForo was.
