    Hello,

    I have a forum website(invision board) and need some inputs to select a dedicated server.
    My forum has 8 million posts (Including posts and topics) in total.
    Right now i am using Xeon 5260 2 bay chaisis
    32 gb ram
    400 gb SD
    I just want to know how can we determine the server configuration ..based on what factors?
    Current issues i am facing is database table crashes....
    Any info on hostingsource.com , arvixe.com , kvchosting.net server hosting?
    Alternatives ? Reviews ?

    Thanks

    I would stay away from arvixe.com and other companies owned by EIG group as you will have a very poor experience. The first things you need to consider are how much CPU, memory, and disk IO are being used. The Xeon 5260 is a very old server so I am guessing your database is having SQL lock ups due to the very slow disk IO. Simply upgrading to a newer Intel E-2236 would increase your performance by 15x-16x as much:

    Intel Xeon X5260 Benchmark: 1203
    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+X5260+@+3.33GHz&id=1292

    Intel Xeon E-2236: 14333
    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+E-2236+@+3.40GHz&id=3607

    Not to mention the use of SSD or NVMe storage that come default with most servers these days, would further increase your forums performance. So the bottom line here is that you should upgrade to a newer server, it will perform much better than the ancient server you are on now.

    Better to upgrade you current plan with your existing provider.
    You have good potential and I believe most hosting providers want to have you as client. Contact your current provider and find out what they can do for you.

    You must know how many members are online at the same time, shared host can handle 10:20 users.

    Just upgrading of server hardware may not fulfil your requirements. Its look like you may needed to tune-up your current server. you may follow the bellow plan.
    If you are using Apache you may shift Nginx or LightSpeed with Cache setup.
    If you are not using RAID you may need to shift SSD Raid Setup.
    If you are using MySQL you can Shift to MariaDB.
    If you can afford you can shift to use Cloud Database. You can use AWS, Alibaba cloud or Google cloud for this. You may also shift to separate database server of your own.
