The community hosting packages that IPS offers are great! :thumbsup:
Now when that have been said I got a related question. Can I host my forum (on for example the Basic 10 plan) in a subdomain ( forum.mydomain.com or mydomain.com/forum doesnt matter which one) and host an actual homepage (only HTML pages, nothing fancy) on the server?
Well I've always wanted to try out the Gallery application and that one would need a bit more than 150MB file storage I guess. ;)
Some other questions:
Will I get access to FTP? How does the update process work? Will IPS update the forum automatically for me? Or can I update the forum myself? Can I use my own domain name? The Basic 10 plan says I can have 10 people online at once. Does that include guests or only registered users?
My forum is starting to grow and now it's starting to eat up the memory on my hosting account resulting in 500 errors now and then.
So I've started to look for solutions to this. That's why I am a bit interested in the Hosted Community packages offered from IPB.
Could one of these hosting packages help me solve the memory issues I am having on my current host? My forum currently only has around 5000 posts but it could need a bit larger file space than 150MB. How much would it cost to add more and still stay on the Basic 10 plan? Can I change the code in my forum themes? Can I add counters and even advertisement banners to the forum? Change the CSS and HTML codes? I already have the Blog application on my current forum. Can I add it to my forum without having to pay another $7.49/month? If I choose to go with one of the hosting packages can I use my old IPB forum license on another forum located on another host?
