How much space/bandwidth do I need for a forum
« on: 10-25-2011, 00:23:25 »
Hi, Since I am new to web hosting stuff, I need all your help. Right now, I'm think to develop a forum that using PHP and MySQL. All the posts will be store in the database (open to suggestion) and when the website load, it will read from the database. I understand that, because it is a forum, so the space will depend on how many people participate in it(number of posts/size). Same with bandwidth.

So, can anyone recommend how much space/bandwidth do I need to start with so that i'm not in trouble of over space/bandwidth later. And if I store all the posts in database, does that mean I do not need much of space (since the normal website does not take much).

Thanks in advance.

It's better to have your domain + hosting with separate companies.
It will save you some hassle if you ever decide to move hosting companies.

Just pay $8 or $9 per year and get a domain from or
Reliable hosting? try HOSTGATOR and WEBHOSTINGHUB.
