Who hosts your board?

Post by beernuts »

Hi all, I know that some of you have very large boards. I was wondering who hosts you? My board is on what I thought was a reliable server, but we have 20 users and 500 posts, and we're already starting to see problems. Thanks for your time. Please only reply with hosts you would unequivocally recommend, AND only if your database has a lot of users.

I do mine inhouse.... using both win2kadvserv and RH7.2.

The current forum is www.amberorder.com and the development/buildout server is at cave.amberorder.com.

The linux box runs apache, windows runs IIS5.0.

Linux = 800 mhz PIII
Win32 = 400 mhz PII

Needless to say, Linux is way faster. They share the same database, and the average pagegen time is .41 on win32 vs .13 on Linux.

Anyway, for those who are interested in such things... <g>

$35 for one year, and nice & fast. before nuking (when i upgraded), my 1.44 board had roughly 3,000 posts on it, and page draws were always under 0.5s, usually under 0.1

only catch is you get 2G of xfer per month, $7 per gig after that. if your board is high-traffic, it'll get you. but if you have a moderate-traffic board (like myself), it's a great host. my board is in my sig, if you wanna take it for a spin. :)

Prostream.net can host large php websites with no problem. Before I took my board down (internal reasons) we had no problems. The prices are very competitive and tech support is very accessable (phone, e-mail and chat).

Rochen Hosting does my service for me and I absolutely love them. The board is quick as lightening, and they are back with me in a matter of minutes for technical support. I looked for awhile to find the right one for my first hosting service and I've certainly found the right one for me.

Yeah, I was gonna suggest FeaturePrice, they seem to have the most bang for your buck. I have a buddy that hosts through there, seems to work very well for him.

[edit] I just checked their website again, and I noticed something for the first time, they only offer MySQL with the Premium Plan and up ($ 203. a year). Ouch. [/edit]
If you can read this sig you're following too close.

They have just one plan, 10 USD/month. It seems to good to be true, but so far, everything has been superfast for us, with great support.
