    Seaking Full Managed VPS + cPanel for ~ $50

    Hi everyone, long time lurker first time poster here.

    I'm looking for a reliable and powerful VPS solution. I need to be absolutely sure who to go with because I do not want to switch hosts again.
    So far I have KnownHost and FutureHosting in mind. How do they compare to each other? Are there any other recommendations?

    Some information:
    MyBB forum with 2,500+ users, 16,800+ threads, 252,000+ posts, and an average of 250 posts per day.
    No less than 2,000GB of bandwidth needed per month.
    Enough RAM and CPU power to handle a large number of downloads. We use this for fast downloading bzip files (maps, models, sounds, etc) to our Counter-Strike: Source and Team Fortress 2 servers.
    It needs to be managed and I would like a cPanel.
    Price of around $50. I would not like to go over this.
    Overall, we need a fast and very reliable host.


    Thank you, I appreciate the help.

    I've been with both as well.....and I like both companies and the people involved.

    But as Sheba says, it's a one horse race! KnownHost!

    XTremo and I are starting to sound like broken records whenever someone asks for a managed VPS recommendation.

    Go with KnownHost. You won't be disappointed.

    What WF said!
    Except in our case we're not young fanboys running round the board like headless chickens trying to carry favour with a host. We're just giving an honest opinion based on our experience.

    Don't know about WF but mine goes back to 1998, and I've seen plenty of people come and go in that time. And up to this point, KnownHost is the best I've used.
    Yes....that's my opinion. But there's probably hundreds of members here who'd say the same thing. We can't all be wrong.

    I had WiredTree for a while and they were great, but they seem to have been having some problems lately according to people on here.

    Go with Knownhost been with them for what seems forever (I also had Futurehosting and while they are a good deal they are not at the same level as KH IMHO).

    Two here interjected that Futurehosting is not at the same level as KH... I am with KH now, but consider Futurehosting as well for 1 or 2 vps's because of their Chicago DC... so if either would care to provide more detail I would like to know more... tx

    FutureHosting are great....fantastic value for money and a good bunch of people.
    However, as others have said, very few providers are going to square up to KnownHost....they are that outstanding.
    If you've never been with KH.....you'll be very happy with FH. But if you're accustomed to KH levels of excellence you'll see the difference.
