    They're all software requirements, not hardware requirements. If you're not getting any traffic you can go for the lowest end server you can find. Not sure why you would need a dedicated server, a VPS would do, but again this all depends on the projected load which is not given.

    ...My website is on a dedi. ;)

    I use Liquid Web, they're awesome. Pricey, but if you're serious about your dedicated server, like super cereal, that's who I use. The support is great, they'll pretty much do everything for you if you don't know how, and it's fast. You're not waiting for some fat dude to get back from BK, they answer the phone and multiple techs start working on your ticket in minutes.

    The longest they've ever taken for me is about 10 minutes... I had them generate and install my SSL and another time my addon domains for a specific domain kept being redirected back to the main site. It took him about 2 minutes to tell me that something in my .htaccess was redirecting stuff (Joomla.. my htaccess is LOADED) and about 5 minutes later I realized what it was that I'd done (http->https) he'd already found it and fixed everything.

    Furthermore, it's more a question of whether you have the knowledge to manage the server or not; and from the available info I'd say you should choose a managed service, be it VPS or dedicated server.

    Lol I have have other dedis and have used EHCP, cPanel, WHM and Kloxo but my current provider cant install all the modules I need for this and my other past provider wants to backcharge me $400 for the months I never used it before they set me up with another one. I am asking for your guys suggestions on what host to go with, like a host name or link to a decent provider who can offer what I need, I can handle everything else I just need decent hosting provider options.

    OK, then shoot a pre-sales question to wiredtree's or dedicatednow's sales dept. They are really good; just make sure they'll include all the support for what you need. I've used them in the past, and they're really good, even for things I can do myself or can delegate to someone that performs server management for me with non-managed providers.

    Edit: And the reason I assumed you had no experience is because things like MySQL install, Apache and PHP build can be performed from within WHM even if you get lost at the command line. The hardest tasks IMO are the manual optimizations and tweaks to the DB, and the installation of required modules and additional software - ie. FFMPEG (if you don't know what you're doing).

    Great! I have successfully installed this already on multiple servers before, but they were shared and I had problems with allowed PHP execution time and it runs very slow on a shared server so just looking around for the best deal.

    Yeah no ffmpeg really needed I usually just use YT and Vimeo linking.

    My server is fully managed cPanel/WHM/Fantastico.

    Linux CentOs 5
    Dual Xeon 2.13GHz Quad Core
    500GB 7200RPM SATA
    500GB 7200RPM SATA Backup
    8GB DDR3 SDRAM
    8000GB Monthly (4in+4out)

    $349/mo and the site on it is BLAZING fast. We were having troubles with shared hosting on this one as well as some other sites and Liquid Web cleared it up.

    For top end dedicated servers, it's not a bad price either. Very competitive.. I was torn between LW and another company with similar that actually lets you keep your server after 12mos of service.

    Then I found out that they do one of two things.. 1.) keep it on site and charge you co-location, and their co-location maxed out at some retardedly low BW and was on a way slower connection. 2.) You have to setup another server and they fucking mail the other one to your house............................................................................... WTF am I supposed to do with this thing? Hook it up to my cable modem?

    Then make me go through the setup process all over again? Cool gimmick, but no. Best decision ever, my site has not been down for 1ms and I couldn't tell you one of their support guys names. (I always judge a service like that lol.)

    I've found the following recommendation after browsing link that you mentioned. Web host seems well reputable in the market. So I don't understand why you're ignoring them?

    Well cause Arvixe is probably pretty expensive compared to other hosters giving you the same thing.

    Love social engine. I am running social engine website and has around 450 members. I was having huge traffic when facebook was banned here in Pakistan but still I have good traffic. I used to use load balancer with several servers but now I shifted on maxcdn cloud. However if you are a beginner, I prefer you to use dedicated server, NGINX, APC (instead of memcache).

    If you need any help with installation or deciding a server then you may freely ask me via PM. I can also help you getting a best server at a best location.
