    Do you need a managed service or un managed?

    Unmanaged and I will let got-management, totalserversolutions or others secure my server.

    With that VBB size, i would say 1st option is good enough until you double yours members, posts.
    After that. Another 2GB of RAM and a faster drive then you can use the server for another 6month to 1year.

    Hope it helps

    Thank you
    Is (KVM over IP Access / Reboot) important? Because no KVM in the first option!

    Do you advise me to order with TP company?

    Thanks,

    You don't really need KVMoIP unless your machine is unbootable due to a config problem. Personally i'd go for the first option until you start to get to its limits.

    I agree with midnightsoftware, I've been with The Planet for three years and not once had the need for KVM over IP.

    As for going with The Planet or not - well like I said I've been there for 3 years and have been very happy with their servers. I also use Touch Support for my server support/securing so I rarely every use The Planets support.

    Of the three years I've only had one issue with The Planet and that was related to customer service than anything. I'd still recommend them, just not a company I plan on staying with much longer now.
