    What do i need to host these things

    I would like to host a website with a wordpress blog, a mybb forum, an irc, and a vpn for 1-2 users.

    What kind of requirements would I need?

    Would I be better off to get a shared host like
    jixhost (unlimited for $4.99/mo),
    use a free irc server
    and get a vpn from someone like SuperVPN (unlimited for 3.99/mo)?

    I also have an old system im not using kicking around with a 1Ghz CPU 128MB Ram and a 10gb hdd.

    What should I do?

    You certainly would want to look at the pros and cons of each setup and see what is of value to you. I do like that with a VPS, you have more flexibility of your hosting environment, which will allow you to experiment with other scripts or applications.

    If you're still unsure about the VPS, maybe it try it out for a month and see if you like it or not. I know a lot of VPS providers are providing first month discounts in the advertising forums.

    It depends on your budget and experience, from my POV, I'd go for VPS, but maybe for you it might be easier to get a good shared hosted(not unlimited) from WHT and a VPN service... and free IRC.

    What's your full budget, if planning to get VPS?

    @Tin that looks very reasonable.
    @Deroba Well probably around $10-$20 a month

    Pretty decent... might wanna take a fully managed server. So for that price I'd suggest WooServers or 123Systems
