    I started with a VPS and had some serious pain moving from one VPS to another as my community started to grow. After 1 k users the VPS setup was not good enouth. We have now 8 k users and we have moved to Rackspace cloud. Things are much better now, but we had to ask for help from iPragmatch to speed up SE. This included installing Nginx as a reverse proxy, replacing MySQL for MariaDB, installing and configuring XCache, etc. We publish registered users on our front page, you dont need log in or register to see the basic stats. Our community is in LaCubanada.com

     

    Best,

    I currently use Godaddy's VPS service its $59.99 a month. It comes with a cpanel. I'm currently running a SE3 and it has 10 plugins. So far there are 430 members on my site and I hope to have 1,000 by march. I haven't checked to see how many people can be on it at once. However, one day the site had a flood of traffic  where about 50 new users signed up at once. The site ran slowly and was down for a while and then came back up. It works okay but I am exploring other options because I'm not sure about its capacity.

    I've been using Burst.NET for 3 years now. Good service and so far I've no issues with them. I'm paying $140 monthly for an i5 quad core 3.1 GHz with 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB space and 5TB monthly bandwidth over a 100Mbps port, a CENTOS 6 64 bit operating system and running on cPanel/WHM. As of right now, I have yet to test a live SE install as mostly my SE install has been a glorified dev install, but I'm also running a couple of wordpress installs with a zenphoto gallery which is generating the most traffic. However, last year I ran SE4 and never had any problems with the speed and had 20-30 users at the same time. Most of the plugins are from Webligo with the exception of the Suggestions plugin from SocialEngineAddons and the SocialDNA plugin from SEmods. Right now I will have a PHPFox install and will do a side by side benchmarking test.

    I'm using wiredtree. Decent specs for the price but they're not familiar with SE.

    Linode.com we currently use it to host our demos (one of them is webhiveteam.com/demo4/ ). It’s on a lowest plan (VPS with 512mb), but it works faster than most of VPS our clients use. The only con is that it goes without any cpanel or administration. All you get is a console and nice tutorials how to setup server, database and php. slicehost.com pretty similar hosting however we have moved from it, because got an feeling that it’s not developing.

      That's right. It's a good option if your budget is tight, but you don't mind to learn. There are tutorials, forum and stack scripts to help. But you start with black console and clean OS instead of a neat cpanel

    For my community I use liquidweb dedicate. They cost more comparing to others, but support is great. When your website is down at night you get reply within 15 minutes! That’s something!

      I had the same experience with liquidweb support. However I don’t know prices - it was a client’s project
