Quote from: danielcberman on September 20, 2012, 02:11:54 amWe began using AN Hosting and in the past we have had some issues with outages, but after a few days they generally went away for months at a time. Due to increasing traffic (11-12GB a month) We recently upgraded to AN Hosting's power boost plan for about $18 a month, but now we are having intermittent outages, & CPU & Memory spikes every couple of days. These consist of momentary outages of 1-2 minutes all the way to 25-45 minutes outages. Unfortunately AN Hosting is not listing most of these scenarios in their status blog, even when I bring it to their attention.
QuoteIs Charlottezweb the place for us at this point? I realize shared hosting implies sharing the host with other websites, but are we really big enough yet to warrant a VPS or semi-dedicated hosting or am I missing something in optimizing my code?
QuoteI have never switched hosts before with a site this big. Is there a good guide or tutorial on move an SMF install across hosts? We are also contemplating switching to phpBB, in your experience which one have you found to be more of resource hog?

I don't see how a forum your size could be sucking up 12GB of bandwidth a month! That just seems like a lot. I could be wrong however.
