I was the co-founder of pissupoosa.com, a Sri Lankan community forum. Recently we discontinued the site due to few personal reasons (partnership dispute, maintenance issues etc.).
at last, we had 1900 mebers and around 100-150 active users. Daily visitor rating was 400-600. 100k-200k page views a month we received.
We ran that forum nearly for 14 Months. we started with iX webhosting (Shared) and after 1 month we had lots of database errors occurred due to the nature of hosting forums in shared hosting servers. so we had a need to switch in to a VPS server. So we checked with many webhosting review sites and finally we found DHD (datahostdirect.com) at the TheAdminZone forums to be the best that fit in to our needs.
we hosted our forum at DHD until we close down that. its nearly a 1 year period with them.
I should say there are one of the best hosting companies we ever worked with.
* Really low price.
* Great packages for small to large scale users.
* What they offer on there home page is what they exactly provide.
* custommer support is excellent. even though they are not providing a 100% 24x7 online support, the response to the tickets was really quick.
* Never had any large down time. only number of minutes server maintenance only we had on few rare occasions.
Overall, i rate there service 5 Stars out of 5. Cheers!
