I am starting my own community forums. I plan on buying the following...
-Vbulletin 5 Connect + Mobile Suite Bundle: $399.00
-Annual Phone & Ticket Support: $199.00/One Year
-Professional Install/Upgrade: $149.00(Saves Me Time)
-Branding Free: $169.00
-Ultimate Web Hosting Windows Package: Godaddy: $449.40 - 5 year plan
My issue is I found out that goddaddy doesn't support the latest mysql that vbulletin 5 requires. Now Godaddy seems to be the top of the line hosting with unlimited everything. I need help should i just go with godaddy and use vbulletin 4 until they upgrade and then i just upgrade to vbulletin 5 or should I try to find another company.
Please keep in mind I want to buy a package deal with top of the line specs for a few years at one time. Price is not a issue for me. I just want to make sure that a year down the line when I am holding 500 members or more online the forums at once that I will not have lag and issues.
Any suggestiond would be great, please don't tell me to go cheaper or to not go with vbulletin, I have the money and vbulletin is what I want. As far as hosting aswell I don't wish to get a lower speced host for cheaper. If this project does happen to fail at some point before my package deal is up i will just give the hosting account and vbulletin forums away.
