In Topic: A Few Questions About Your Service

31 October 2016 - 02:11 PM

I run a very small XenForo forum on MDD. It has always run without issue. When I had 15-20 concurrent users the board ran just fine. Once your north of ~40-50 concurrent users you need to start looking at higher end shared hosting (Premium Hosting) or a VPS. 

 

Generally, speaking all my sites hosted here run without issue. One time a client of mine failed to update his WP theme. He was hacked and his account was sending spam. Support was great about working with me to bring the site back online after I cleaned it up.  

 

Do you run all your sites off of a single shared hosting account here? What kind of "visitors/page views/bandwidth" do you use monthly?

One of the problems with plugins and themes is not that the user is not keeping them up-to-date, it is because the original coder who issued the plugin does not issue updates to offer secure versions .From a security standpoint, there is a large concentration on keeping script up-to-date, but I think there should be a greater recognition among the webmaster community about the security risk in using "aged code", which hasn't been updated in 5 years.

 

Side question (for Mike or anyone else). Is there a reason why a XenForo forum (in general) would not be supported? Isn't it just a regular forum built on PHP/MySQL, or is there more to the requirements than that?
