Title: Better web host for small forum.
Post by: Saaina on August 02, 2016, 10:00:34 AM
Hello everyone!! Good Morning!!
I am new on this forum. I am looking to start small community forum with 10-15 members. I know basic of web host and forum but I never tried to learn in-depth.Please suggest me best web host for small forum. As I hunted many companies. I donít know how to choose hosting whether its shared or VPS, Dedicated etc. along with great support because I will need technical help like keeping pages off search indexing etc.One more thing, I have already purchased the domain from some other provider . Budget is low 10$ per month in earliest stage.

I run few forums with MilesWeb.Com without any problem. It will depend upon forum script but make sure it should not be heavy/ bloated/ unoptimized. You can opt for shared hosting.

I will suggest you to check Softaculous. Because this application contains huge numbers of forum scripts. This will help you to make choice.

In my opinion forums could be big or small but it demands more server resources then the average website.

As someone suggested shared hosting, I donít think this is better option because shared hosting wonít be enough as you will need to upgrade immediately.

If numbers of users is 30 or 20 in a month then there is no need to opt for a VPS or Dedicated.

Forums is not just about MySQL but it also needs ton of php just to power one page.

Your requirement fits well in shared hosting account. Once your forum starts fetching more traffic then you should consider upgrading to VPS or Dedicated server.

Yes, agree. And traffic on forum may get increase with its popularity. So, its better to have VPS hosting or dedicated servers to run forum.
