Can I host this on my any server or does it have to be here?
Also, if hosted here are static ips available and how much?

I can't answer all of that, but I can say that based on my own experience, that you can run this on any server. It will run on Linux and Windows machines (though I admit it is way easier on a linux server than on a windows based server).

I say that and then follow up with some here would disagree with me on that statement about which OS it would be easier on.

Static IPs that depends on your host. I run all of this on my own equipment so I don't have extensive knowledge on hosting UBB.....but many people here do use external hosting and it seems to be stable and runs fine. As for hosting options here, I will leave that question to the people who use the service.

I recently (3 months ago) switched to ExpressHosting and can't speak positively enough about the service and performance of this company. It also cut my hosting cost by 2/3's. The owner is very knowledgeable of UBBThreads and that is a plus.

I can't find it now. But there used to be a test php script to run to determine that your existing server is compatible.
But most all at least shared hosting plans work.
As far as static ip you can contact express hosting for the costs I do know they have a limited number of them.
Okay found the test script hiding at"
https://www.ubbcentral.com/demo.php
It is a form to request a test demo at the vendors site
Look at the bottom of the screen for server test.

I'm hosted at Interserver on a VPS and have been running several UBB's for about a year on my machine there.

I am looking for new servers as well. We're currently at a place where we have 3 dedicated servers: they never even alerted us that there was a HUGE vulnerability last year. Ergo last week - presto! A hacker owned root.

Need to change, looked up both those you guys suggested. Interserver has far worse machines: expressshoppingnet has far better, more ram, a LOT more BW, all for 180. Paying 350 for a slower server with less ram, less than half the bw, right now.

Question: I get that dedicated servers come as is, you DIY and that's cool. I don't get that when a serious vulnerability becomes known, no newsletter? No email? No NUTTIN? Is that the same at all of these companies? (Admittedly we have 1 new servers and 2 more provisioned years ago - still you'd THINK they'd have alerted us. God knows everyone else knew: I did research and found the hack itself described. ANY ole coder (including moi) could do it. Thanks for telling people how to hack, press idiots. And thanks to my (soon to previous) hosting company for the alert!

ARG if only I knew more about server guts - but noooo!

While I'm at it, the only other hosting place I'm examining is GoDaddy: also heard good things there.

Do any of you have UBB boards which, like mine, is such a monster that during peak it requires a couple of servers? (Not saying 3: I think 2 of ours are so old that 1 good one could replace it, taking us down to 2. Still we'll require a third shortly.)

Not ALL servers are DIY, Interserver's servers are managed, as in they do updates for you on your machines...

Some distributions have update notifications, some people (like me) just run updates once a week on top of having a host that does managed services.

Interserver also publishes security bulletins on their forums as well which also show in the billing area.

Do NOT host at GoDaddy, they're horrible; have been since we used to use them, have been for any client I've helped recover their data out of there; it may be different for dedicated machines since you do all the work on an unmanaged system, but I've never had a good experience with them.

Personally I don't have a site that popular unfortunately, but BellaOnline is quite possibly one of the largest UBB forums I can think of offhand...

Suggest you take a look at VertexHost

I have had excellent service and support.

Low staff turnover and they move quickly on any trouble tickets.
