    I need suggestions.. I want to keep the price very low but good amount of storage as the site will have many pictures stored (guides, tutorials etc). Besides the forum on the games actual website (which no one really uses because it is a pain and has problems) this forum will be only one available for the game... the previous forum that was running for the game had probably over 1000 users (not all active by any means). I would expect this forum to be able to handle at max 50 users on at any one given time.


    post here or if you need more info let me know.

    to keep stable and stand huge traffic, a dedicated server is necessary, at least a high-performance VPS

    I know that Zetservers is a good option for getting ssd vps hosting solutions.
    LZCMP9C14Q to get 15% OFF! If you want reliable, low-cost, excellent discounting hosting service, this company is the way to go.

    For a forum you definitely need VPS hosting. Since most of the forum platforms are resource hungry and most shared hosting providers will start crying soon after you install it.

    Again you should look for SSD VPS hosting since like you mention you will have lot of images and SSD with give you better performance.

    I would suggest you to go with my provider www.webuzo.net .

    Have no single downtime or lag for months now , their support is pretty active and friendly.

    For 17 usd (15 Euro) you will get 20 SSD Drive 1 GB DDR3 1x 3Ghz CPU 100Mbps International Connection

    /Good luck
