    Best server for hosting forum


    I'm currently hosting my IPB forum at powervps. They're truly a great vps provider with top-notch support, but now I think I should move on dedicated for better performance.

    What I need (minimum requirements):

    A server with P4 2.8 Ghz processor or equivalent
    1 Gb RAM
    15 Gb HDD
    400 Gb bandwidth monthly
    Windows OS
    No Cpanel needed
    Managed or unmanaged

    Budget: max $130 monthly (total fee)

    You may ask me why I didn't make a search before asking. Yes I did but it's hard to find a provider that offers a such server. I did contact some top-rated dedicated providers but received no positive response (the normal response is "the slotted bandwidth in each server can't be changed" ).

    Some information about my forum:

    18000 members
    at least 60-80 online users at any moment
    150-180 online users at peak hours
    300 new registered users per day
    no extra services (downloading, streaming,...)

    Thanks a lot for any suggestion.

    I know that can do that for half the price.

    Have a look here:
    I would go with the "Intel P4 2.8Ghz 533 FSB Blowout" because you get an extra 80gb harddrive for free!

    Providers often custom tailor servers according to their prospect's needs. You may want to contact them directly for a quote.
