    I think you really need to be looking at a dedicated server is you are pushing 600Gb bandwidth and that busy PHPBB board

    Like vaserv said get a dedicated server. At least that way you'll have sufficient transfer to support your forum. You will probably need someone to manage the box too so it can be optimized and kept running smoothly. You can try to do it on your own, but don't expect sympathy when something goes wrong.

    Patron: I read the same way I listen, I ignore the parts I don't agree with. I'm suing you for false advertising.

    For those space and bandwidth requirements you should be looking at, at bare minimum a mid to high end vds/vps or a low end dedicated server.

    Honestly I am sure you would be able to find a host who will take on running a lower end server for you for an inexpensive monthly cost. I would do a small bit of searching and research as well.

    Or what you could do is maybe share a server with someone.. gl

    Note that he needs the server for less then about 30 usd. As with canaca you pay about 20 for gold plan.

    Taking the raw cost of bandwidth alone is about $25 per 300Gb if not oversold I think budgest will need to be increased. You want to look at realy $90/mo +
