I currently have a website with a dragonfly cms on it. The community is about of course hot girls but no porn or nudity, everyday I have people joining and getting a good amount of daily visits. After analyzing my options and interacting with the members via polls, I have decided to change from dragonfly to vBulletin and close off part of the forum for paid members only. I'm also planning to change from GoDaddy to Hostgator, since hostgator allows porn. Plus hostgator has unlimited bandwidth and unlimited space. I have the following questions: 1 How would I migrate all the already registered members to vBulletin and would it be difficult? 2 I'm not looking for a high end payment processing system, I've thought about PayPal and probably phone payments, but if I use paypal, how would vBulletin software know who is a paid member and who is a regular member? 3 Since I plan on having paypal take care of payments, I want to know if everything will get done automatically with paypal from payment to giving the user instant access to the paid section (if this is possible) In a post that I participate in, I mentioned that I frequent a website with over 98,000 members, the site uses paypal to handle transactions, so as soon as you pay, you get redirected to the sign in page and you have instant access to the site. I want to know if that's all paypal or maybe the website techs?
