You might want to check directly on the Xenforo forums for that. I'm not aware of any standard hosting provider who is going to be able to turn key an install like that to that amount of detail. You're likely going to be better off finding a good hosting provider and then hiring a Xenforo expert for any indepth tweaks and configurations like that.
However, with that said, Xenforo really doesn't take that much to get running well. If you're really after speed just a server with LiteSpeed, LS Cache and add memcache ontop of it and you're set as long as you don't add too much overhead in your template.
what I am anxious to avoid is being hooked up with people who just dont respond once my credit card is lodged. You know what I mean I am sure.
That sounds like my previous host. For what a random stranger's review is worth to you, I wouldn't be with KnownHost for the last 5 years (anniversary coming next month *hint* #KHswag) if they were not worth keeping. Unprecedented up-time and amazing support thanks to KnownHost, 5 years straight for me. There are other people here that have been here far longer than I have that share the same opinion as me.people who just dont respond once my credit card is lodged
Ok Daniel - all understood. I am being cautious because I am responsible to members of a club - so there is a political dimension to decisions made as I am sure you will appreciate. I am sure I can proceed - what I am anxious to avoid is being hooked up with people who just dont respond once my credit card is lodged. You know what I mean I am sure.
I will sign up and give it a go.
All the best
