What VPS host do you recommend?

I have a $50/m budget and am looking for a good VPS host. I prefer US since its where I am but Pulseinternet doesnt look bad. What do you recommend?

When you say growing rapidly... how so, do you mean? With that small of a forum (currently), you could probably get away with shared-hosting. No need to spend the money on a VPS if it's not needed, IMO.

Yea there really is no need to purchase a VPS with that many members... I run my site (36000+ members) on shared hosting.

You really don't need a VPS yet at this stage, but I can recommend a webhost for shared and/or cheap-end dedicated servers.

www.crissic.com has decently priced shared, and their support is awsome. Been using them for a long while now and cannot complain.

They also have decent dedicates, so if you go with them for shared, they can easily move you off to your own dedicated once it is actually needed.
They also have some dedicated sales: http://crissic.com/dedisales.html
Pentium 4
512MB DDR RAM
60GB HDD
2000GB Transfer
5 Dedicated IPs
$49.99 per month -- just within your budget.

They have more expensive servers, as well as a cheaper server for $39.99. They are based over in Pennsylvania, USA

No need for a VPS yet, but you recommend a dedicated? Doesn't make much sense.

Theoldwiz how many posts do you get every day and on average how many users are online? Because looking from your forum stats, it doesn't looks like you need a VPS.

Then you aren't even close to needing a VPS yet. You are fine on shared hosting, as long as you stay away from those large ones like HostICan and Bluehost that use programs that jip you out of your resources.

I agree with most of these posters, there's no need at all for a VPS right now. And if you don't know how to run a VPS, it can be quite a hassle.

Ask your host how many concurrent mySQL connections they allow...then multiply this x2 or x3 and you get a general idea about how many users on-line you can have at once.

I'd suggest finding a new host that doesn't have large restrictions like HostGator. I can recommend one..
