Hey guys,

I wanna know what host you guys use on your big boards. Do you guys still use shared hosting or dedicated? Please reply. Thanks. :D

I imagine dedicated as there is a lot of server load, but some people think that if you have a big board you have to fork out for a dedi server, this is not true. If you find a stable shared hosting provider they will let you host a big board doing this you wouldnt have to worry about RAM/CPU usage etc, but I would contact a shared hosting provider before buying and ask them if you can.

Regarding servers my top would be Softlayer ;).

We used a dedicated server from softlayer. They are very good :).

I use SoftLayer also and have been absolutely thrilled with their service. :up:

Softlayers prices aint bad at all so I would suggest picking up one of those bargain deals and have a nice speedy forum ;).

I have 2 servers with Softlayer and 2 with LayeredTech. Both provide great service at a reasonable price.

Good Luck

Softlayer is great, if not amazing. But I still think unmetered collocation comes cheaper. :)

I have a dedicated server with simpli.biz - great group of people and excellent support.

Used to be with The Planet, narrowed my choices to Softlayer and LiquidWeb knowing I would be happy with either, got a great deal from Liquidweb - been there about a year, very happy...

I used to be with EV1/the Planet - and recently moved to Softlayer and am loving it so far.
