    Hey Folks -

    I've been hosting my forums with liquidweb.com - its been good until -- I get heir firewall that bans ip's for no reason - its been 7 months in and thei hosting randomly bans users off my site - thinking that its a DoS type gig they are runing when they are simply trying to use my site.

    So I was wondering if any BHatter can point me towards a good host for A WH legit gaming forums - that is affordable -

    Can be either shared hosting or VPS.

    You can get a nice VPS from knownhost for around $30, I have been with them for 9 months and couldnt be happier, Their support is awesome

    Damn! why haven't you moved away from them faster?
    Just look $40 for VPS (cheapest one ) what you can get for max $10 on most of the another Sites!I mean you can buy whole dedicated server 10X better for the same price as their VPs's cost...
