Basically I need help to find out what kind of dedicated server that's good for my sites.
I'm currently running my sites on a shared hosting account but lately I've noticed that I need something more powerfull.
My forum is a vbulletin forum and we have 10,400+ members, almost a million posts and on average there's 50-100 people online at once.
The main site gets about 3000 visitors per day and we have some audio and video on the site.
Together the sites are using about 300-400 GB of bandwidth per month.
I'm soon also going to have another site (a artist promotion site) that will have a lot of audio, both streaming and downloading.
Basically I need help with what kind of specifications I would need on the server. Ram, processor, etc.
Also, if you have suggestions on what companies to use, please let me know. I'm a newbie to dedicated servers so I would need a dedicated server that's managed by the provider, or at least semi-managed.
