I run my current site from asmallorange. I am currently using their shared hosting, but I am about to out grow it.
Im currently using 120GB of bandwidth a month, and it keeps growing. I have about 800 users on the forum, 150-200 active. 30 people on at normal hours, and peeks of 150-200 on tuesdays (when new stuff is released we talk about).
I am in talks to moving to a VPS at asmallorange, but I have never seen them recommended here as a VPS.
Id like room to grow, so at least 250GB bandwidth, 10(ten)GB of storage and something that is fast and reliable.
Also, im used to running a shared site from cpanel, so anything with cpanel, and as manages as possible would be better. I dont have too much time during school to upkeep the site. (why I love shared) PHP5 as the main php would be a huge plus, but if it runs side by side with 4 that is also ok.
I figured Id need 512RAM but I really do not know.
My budget is about $900/ year or about $75/mo.
(using phpbb and mediawiki)
Thanks in advance.
