Re: Pulse: How Are You Hosting phpBB?

In most cases a $2.99 VPS is going to be a heavily overloaded service given time or provided with very, very little resources. Even at this price point, most would require a control panel of some sort which will take up most if not all of the resources provided in such a cheap VPS. Well the $2.99 i...

Re: Pulse: How Are You Hosting phpBB?

Yeah VPS used to be the common phrase but now companies have moved to Cloud. In fact many hosting companies don't mention VPS any more. True modern cloud is really more like clustering 2.0.

Re: Pulse: How Are You Hosting phpBB?

Cloud hosting provides several advantages: 1) It is your own environment as you are isolated from others meaning if a website is hacked on another account it can't effect yours. 2) It is like having your own server so you get to decide what policies to set.

Re: Pulse: How Are You Hosting phpBB?

I know of many hosts with $4 and $5 clouds and one with $2.99 VPS. These are full virtual environments. So as the price drops the field is shifting.
