    I have a forum that now gets about 300 uniques per day and slowly increasing and now it is on a shared server. At which point do I need to move it to a VPS? It is a vbulletin

    you don't need a vps for 300 visitors per day. Get a vps once you start getting 5000 visits daily.

    @Huy_Phan: You are getting 300 visitors or 300 members logged in at a time.

    I am only getting 300 visitors, not members. I have less than 200 members in my forum and only a few of them are active.
