There is a ton of buzz around Xenforo right now as they are quickly taking over as the self-hosted bulletin board software leader! For years our team used vBulletin, but after making the switch last year, we’ve yet to look back.
Xenforo comes responsive out of the box meaning that visitors can view and participate in the forum across multiple devices. Their simple administration area allows for quick and easy customization and migration from vB (or other boards) is painless. I can’t say enough about how well of a job the entire Xenforo team has done – thanks guys!
One of the challenges that many webmasters face with self-hosted software is finding a reliable web host that allows room to grow. That’s where your friends at NameHero come into the picture. Using our Managed Cloud Platform, you can get your board up and going and scale on-demand as you grow. It’s likely you’re already aware that basic discount shared hosting won’t work for you. Those solutions don’t provide enough CPU power or RAM to sustain the resources you need to deliver the content to your visitors.
We’ve specifically optimized our Cloud platform to handle the PHP and mySQL resources for Xenforo and other server intensive applications. You’re not going to have to wait for our support team to install additional PHP modules – as we’re all ready to go. Simply signup for the package that best meets your specifications and you can have your Community online in a number of minutes.
Since we’re on the Cloud you can start small while you develop and then grow as your traffic grows. Expecting a big traffic day? Simply let our support team know and we’ll make sure you’re covered. Sleep sound knowing we backup your files nightly on site, off site, and in the Amazon cloud. Triple-layer protection because we know how valuable your business is!
Feel free to sound off below with any questions, comments, or concerns below. We look forward to serving you and helping you grow your community!
