1) I'm thinking about moving over from my current host to one of your VPS plans. I'm wondering what plan you guys would recommend for a php+mysql forum, with the following stats:
* 60.000+ unique users per month, 160.000+ visits per month.
* 600+ users/guests online on the forum at any moment of the day (24hours occupied), with rare spikes reaching 3000 guests/users at a single moment.
* Bandwidth consumption per day averages at 6-8 GB, with rare spikes of 20+GB during special events.
2) Also, I have bad experience with US hosting providers, with them filtering out a list of countries (Cuba, Venezuela, etc, etc). How about you guys?
3) I might in the future decide to change my forum to a Java one, would this be a problem on the VPS? Am I free to install whatever I want/need?
