Do you use vbulletin? Just wondered what the performance is like for your board using the servers here comapred to shared hosting. I havent managed to use mine yet, so it be good to read back on this when mines operational. On my old host quite a few times I would get 'failure to connect to database' or the page would freeze then suddenly load. What about server load with shoutboxs other modifications added, I have notice that compared to pphboards vbulletin does use more resources on shared hosting. In the past my hosters telling or just switching my site of cause of intensive cpu usage till I upgrade or optimize the database which works for a while then I would get the same issue again..anyone else this happens to?
