    I think its located on the wrong place. It would be better to place it closer to the topic title, maybe the orange icon? Good feature tho!

    Wow, that is really nice! I wouldn't even consider it was a IPB forum if you hadn't told me.

    Wow this looks so great! :)

    Looks really nice. Great job!

    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?

    I am so satisfied with the community hosting that I actually purchased another Basic 10 package for one of my other forums. :thumbsup:

    Just a quick update:

    I managed to transfer the forum over to the new server all by myself *proud*. ;) It was rather easy thanks to cPanel and my former host's support.

    I haven't yet (for obvious reasons) tried the forum under a normal day. But so far it looks good. The forum loads remarkably faster on the new server. :)

    My forum is located here: http://www.enviro-space.com

    Yes I've already done that (Ticket #592445). :)

    I want to transfer my current forum (http://www.enviro-space.com) to this new host. Can you guys help me with that? And if so what do you need from me?



    Well that won't be a problem. I tend to stay away from making any modifications or edits into individual files. The current features and hooks are more than enough for me. :)

    Alright you have convinced me. I have just purchased an annual Basic 10 hosting package. :)
  11. simon2 added a post in a topic: Hosted Community packages   



    That sounds to good to be true! ;)

    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?
    Thanks!

    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.

    My questions:


    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?
    Thanks!

    Thanks Mark and Matt for the answer! :)

    With IPB3 and features like this coming I am so happy I invested in IPB and not the obsolete vBulletin.

    Sounds great. Im not sure if I will use this feature but its always nice to have some extra goodies :)

    A question: If I want to associate my admin account with a Facebook account would that cause any problems for me?

    Is it just me or is this forum extremely slow at the moment?

    1. Charles
