Hi, I run a game server's forum with about 600 registered users.
We have a average concurancy of around 20 during peek times witch lasts a few hours, and 5-20 other hours.
Posts: Nearly 20,000 in just a few months.
So my question is wha should I go with with hosting.
-Fast no matter where you are (we have users all across world.)
-Around 15 gb b/w /month and not to hard and expensive to expand.
-Not much space needed. We only use around 20mb now.'
I'd recommend doing some research and also make sure you have what you need in terms of features and funtionality as that would be easiest and then make sure you inquire and ask pre-sales questions before signing up.

Most cPanel hosts include Fantastico, with which you can install SMF and many other scripts with the click of a few buttons.
As mentioned before, for now a shared hosting server should do fine for your needs, but if your site continues to grow then you should look out for a VPS or dedicated server in the future.
Make some inquiries first before you plan the move, so that you won't run into any surprises.
