    Hello UnderEstiated,

    Yeah, ignore that one post. WHT is here for just what you did - ask questions, look for opinions and so on. You are spot on freind! Anyway - if I were you, I would look for a semi-dedicated plan. You are not quite big enough for your own server yet. I do not imagine it will be cost effective for you. Try to find a host that has large plans and keeps thier domain numbers per server down. Semi-dedicated is one way some companies do this. You might also look into a VPS solution, but you will need some technical background for that (to manage it).

    Let us know how you make out!

    I think a VPS should be good enough to handle your forum at this point of time, however since you do not have much knowledge about servers, look for a Managed VPS hosting provider and who will allow you easy upgrades in future.
