    Best paid forum software

    What is the best paid forum software in your opinion? If I were to choose a paid solution, I would go with IPB. I'm not a fan of XenForo or vB even as an end user, but IPB is pretty nice to use.

    Temporary bans

    Do you tend to use temporary bans to discourage bad behavior on your forum? Recently, I have been staying away from bans. I believe that bans should be reserved for scammers, hackers, predators, etc. Users who are unpleasant can usually be handled with the moderation queue.

    Do you know how to manage a dedicated server?

    Managing a dedicated server seems like it would be kind of like managing an Apache server at home except on a larger scale. I think that with a dedicated server, you usually get remote access as if you were using the machine from home.

    Best place to get a dedicated server?

    What is the best place to get a dedicated server? There are so many sites that offer dedicated hosting. What's a very reliable provider?

    Dedicated server need

    For the level of traffic you describe, a higher-end shared hosting package or VPS should be sufficient. If your users are getting 503 errors, then it may be a problem with the host.

    Unhappy with dedicated server?

    You can go back to VPS or cloud hosting in most situations. Some sites simply get too much traffic to be able to use a VPS and require powerful dedicated servers. The vast majority of sites, though, would be fine on VPS or cloud hosting.

    Best control panel for dedicated servers.

    My favorite is cPanel. It's really the only one I have used, but I can't imagine something being more user-friendly and powerful than cPanel. I don't feel the need to switch to a different solution since I'm already familiar with cPanel.

    Do you have a vps?

    Do you have a VPS? What do you host on it? I have thought about getting a VPS before for game servers and other types of things, but I never was able to justify the extra cost. Some places have very reasonably priced VPS offers, though, so I may consider it in the future.

    Cloud hosting vs. other types

    Is cloud hosting better or more reliable than other types of hosting? Why would somebody choose cloud hosting over other types? I have never tried cloud hosting. I know that many big websites have taken to using it, but I don't know what the benefits are.

    Promotion codes

    Do you usually look for promotion codes before signing up for web hosting? Whenever I sign up for a new hosting account, I always look for promotion codes. It's amazing how much money you can save just by putting in a simple code!

    What are the benefits of getting dedicated hosting?

    A dedicated server can handle much more traffic than a VPS or shared hosting. When you're on shared hosting, a single server is dedicated to perhaps hundreds of different sites. When you're on dedicated hosting, you have a whole machine to yourself.

    Should i get a dedicated server?

    I really don't think that you need a dedicated server yet. Forum Promotion was on shared hosting until about a million posts. I wouldn't recommend staying on shared hosting that long, however. I'm just giving an example. There's no reason to invest in more than what you need at this time.

    That's good that you haven't seen the need to contact your host's support yet. Hopefully your good luck will continue. Even when you don't need it, it's nice to know that it's there in case you ever do need it.

    How long have you been with your current web hosting company?

    I have been using HawkHost since 2011. I am very satisfied with them and plan to use them for all my future sites. :) They have excellent support, and they're pretty cheap.

    Most important thing to look when signing up with a hosting company?

    I think it's important to choose a web host that has really good reviews and an excellent reputation. Any decent host should promise 99.9% uptime and have 24/7 support.

    Have you ever had a dedicated server?

    Have you ever had a dedicated server? If so, where was it hosted? I have considered getting a dedicated server or at least a VPS before back when I was running game servers for Ultima Online. I ran a game server on my home computer that got DDoSed, so I wanted a VPS or dedicated server so that...

    Have you ever wanted to register a domain name only to discover that it was taken, much to your dismay? I have been lucky so far because none of my domain names have been taken! There have been times where the com has been taken and I registered the net, though, which was fine by me.

    Avoid abbreviations for domain names

    I think that abbreviations can be a great way to make a domain name more memorable as others have said. For example, I am considering buying a domain name for my clan Betty Crocker Armory. That would be an extremely long domain, so I think I'm going to purchase something along the lines of...

    Have you had to contact your host's support team yet? I have had to contact the HawkHost support team on a few occasions. Every time, they were extremely fast to reply and solved my problem very quickly. I would strongly recommend HawkHost to anyone for their solid hosting plans and their great...

    000 web hosting

    I would host a site on my own computer before I would use 000webhost. :P Sites hosted on 000webhost are so slow that it's unbelievable. I guess you can't expect anything different from free hosting, though. :P
