we're with surpass hosting. I couldn't tell you the size of our equipment...I do know I have heard my hubby mention things like dual processors and that the next server we go to will have to be a second server that's like the one we're on now. It is a dedicated server. so that's nice. The shared one, we weren't sharing so nicely - our traffic was pulling a lot of load.

dedicated server at hostway.com, paying $200 a month. Been with them for about 5 years, I have no gripes. If I am paying more than what I should be, can somebody hit me up with a PM or something and let me know how much less I should be paying, and from where. thanx

I've been with SiteGround for over a year. It's a shared server, and I must say, it's not the greatest. It runs you 5.95/month. I'm not happy because we have a relatively small forum, yet we constantly run in to server resource issues.

I'll be looking to moving to something else later, probably HostMonster, or possibly SoftLayer.

Just an update - we have a dedicated server and a colo at Liquidweb. Absolutely love the support. You can get someone on the phone 24 hours a day. We were moving 25 gigs of data to the new server and ran into a problem that required someone at the data center to get involved. We sent them an email request at 3 am. thinking it would take a several hours, it was done in 20 mins.

Haven't run into a problem they wouldn't fix yet. And always friendly. This report is after 11 months of service. Once we receive our server from our old host I'll tell you who to stay away from

If its really a bid board, go dedicated. There are too many good hosts to list them all

Bongwater, nice site but at 175 members on, it's slow as molasses...

Don't know what you're getting for $200 but it's way too slow.

How can some of you afford to host such small sites on Softlayer?

..and why do you respond to a thread about Big Boards, if you have a small site.

Not sure what exactly defines "big board" but we're hosted by LiquidWeb on a dedicated server. It was a huge $$$ jump going from VPS to dedicated, but it's been VERY worth it. Huge difference in load times and performance. LiquidWeb's support is unmatched. Love them and will probably never leave them

After reading this thread, I am thinking about moving to Softlayer too. Can I ask anyone hosting there what Softlayer's support is like. I need to be able to get people on the phone when and if things go wrong...
