Best Hosting For A MyBB Forum?
#21
Why not just pay for actual web hosting, instead of a MyBB only host? It's not that expensive

Best hosting for a MyBB forum Big Grin

That is quite a good one .

Not really... only the starter package is good, if you want what you pay for then get host gator's shared.

99% of MyBB forums don't need more than the Starter package. If you do, then it's because it's a big forum. And while Hostgator does offer "unlimited" disk space and bandwidth, they'll kick you off the server as soon as you use more than 10% CPU.

I'm currently hosting http://www.eaforums.com/forums - which has over 500k posts and is using the Network plan (Just $14/month with coupon) - Hostgator would never let them stay on shared hosting.

What do you mean MyBB-only web hosting? My hosting isn't MyBB-only.

I use Hosting24, they have unlimited web space and bandwidth for $5/month

I have already used 1.5TB of bandwidth this month, and have had no problems.

About Hosting24... Do they kick you from the server if you use too much of the CPU? And I didn't know host gator had it at 10%, I thought it was more like 20% then they kicked you off shared.

They will temporarily "freeze" your account for 5 or 10 minutes (can't remember which) if you do

I have had it happen to me once due to a faulty code in a file, but after those 5 minutes it will bring your site back up

It will just send you to a static page saying the site has exceeded server resources

But as for banning or anything like that, no not at all

That's great then, I may use them in the future. I use to use their free host but it just got too popular and slow that I just stopped.

Please also remember that HostGator allows only allows 25 simutaneous Sql connections. What that means? Only 25 people can log in simultaneously at a time. Please note that it does not mean that you will see only 25 users online but have read of people having problems with 50 or more people online getting errors of Max User Connections reached. The number 50 varies some people have had problems at 80,100 and some as low as 30. This should also be a key factor as you are running a forum and not a static website.

I was with hosting24 for over 2 years but left them recently because of persistant downtime
a shame as they started off well, except for they don't allow you to mass mail, so no newsletters etc

i'm currently with just host so far so good
