    I forgot this:

    VPS plan should include FTP access and payment must be E-gold cos i cant pay through other payment method.

    For a forum that size, a VPS is not what you need. You need a dedicated for that.
    simplywww: directadmin and cpanel hosting that will rock your socks

    Your posts showed you are a non-technical person, therefore an unmanaged VPS or dedicated server will not suit you. You need someone to take care of it for you.

    However, even with unmanaged servers, your budget is too low. $50 can get you an old Pentium III server.

    Control panels alone will cost you about $10-$15 per month, not to mention server management.

    their Specials page.

    Wherever you look, it'll end up costing you about 80-100/mo for the smallest dedicated, including the control panel.

    Would You Recommend Simplywebhosting To Me?

    Or Sitground?

    Do you need any control panel? If yes, which one?
    A panel's fee will make your needs more expensive than your budget I think..

    I need cPanel to manage FTP, Db's and some other stuff. actually i dont need a dedicated server now.. either a shared hosting or VPS. i can upgrade from shared hosting to VPS, or VPS to dedicated server.. later when my forum gets big.

    The company must have sharedhosting, VPS and dedicated server.

    Thanks.
