I was in that situation recently. I have been using hosting sites for a while now, some good - some not at all good. So I wanted to find a good option for the Forum. I looked around and what I wanted I really couldn't afford, but I ended up with a hosting solution that fit the pocketbook, exceeded my expectations, had a knowledgeable UBB and WordPress person and the switch was so so easy. What is so neat about having a hosting person who knows UBB is that if you have a problem they should be there to help you and there are some little tricks that you can do to make things easier to style and lots more tricks that just make things run so much better.

So after all of that if you want a hosting solution for UBB that is a Great Value then contact Sirdude.

Thanks SD for making the switch painless and helping with the little tweaks.

Cheap is rarely what you want to use for a host, cheap is ok for smaller websites (low traffic/low tranfers). Look at the price difference as the Value of a UBB and WP guru.

It sounds like you made a wise decision.

I'm currently on a shared cPanel with a reseller account. Was just curious as to what market you're looking for. Always nice to have options available instead of last minute-over the weekend moves like I've had before.

no plans really...

i just look @ the size of the board, go back / forth with the person who wants hosting and we arrive at a price..

depends on what they want..

some peeps just want their board to 'run itself' in terms of maintence etc.. they just wanna post and admin the actual board, but the rest of the bells / whistles to get handled for them.. as long as they maintain their ubb license, it does..

i'm very selective too.. very few peeps on the box, so that there is zero load issues.. that intel i7 is mainly idling smile
