This professional grade software needs professional grade hosting to match with the quality of the software. Forums can take up large amounts of hosting resources as they grow and great hosting will make a huge difference. You will need a hosting company providing support for PHP and MySQL, which isn’t uncommon. Most hosting companies offer these types of features, but not all offer great support, high quality performance and all the necessary resources.
What to Look for in a Simple Machines Hosting Company
The main features you need from a hosting company for a Simple Machines forum include:
- Excellent Support
- Lock Down Security
- Fast Performance
- All Levels of Hosting
Many top hosting companies only offer one package and they tell you the resources (disk space and bandwidth or data transfer) are unlimited. This may be true, but it’s usually a shared hosting plan. Shared hosting isn’t the most secure and won’t provide the necessary resources once your forum grows to a certain level.
After you reach a specific daily visitor average, you need to upgrade to VPs or dedicated server hosting. When this happens, you won’t be able to upgrade without switching to a new hosting company, if you choose a host with only one package. You need a company offering shared, VPS and dedicated hosting. This will allow you to grow your forum as slow or fast as you want, without jumping from a $5 a month package to a $500 a month package in just a few short days.
