    How good is this server?

    First of all which is better? Virtual server or Dedicated server?

    I am thinking about the following virtual server to run my forum
    www.detectorsparadise.com

    Can you tell me if this server will make my forum load faster, not lag as much, and a good value for the money?

    A physical server would be better than virtual because you are directly using all the hardware of the box as opposed to sharing bits of it with other servers.

    To be honest, you need to know the spec of the server your site currently runs on.

    Its likely that you share a server with lots of other websites, all sharing the server resources and bandwidth. Your own dedicated server will likely make your website perform better but there is know real way of knowing without trying it to be honest

    Its good price, but the disk space is very little.. and also if using MSSQL price will be more.. So better check with other host too...recommended godddy , vpsland

    That would be amazing. I am so sick of my hosting company, my server crashes every 2 days since I opened the website. They keep saying they are having server problems but it's been going on for 2 weeks now. I have to ask them to reset the CGI about every 4 days. They are nothing but trouble.

    It's great to talk to another detector, you and your group should consider joining Detectors Paradise. We're all like one big family.
