    I am finaly ready to get the dedicated hosting plunge. I have some questions, I read past posts but still confused. I searched around for dedicating hosting and I found one for $175 through my current host, which is hostgator, I also spoke with GOdaddy and they have a dedicated plan for $100. Now I would love to spend the cheapest as poosible to get started without sacraficing the sites stability. I can also change hosts to a more powerful one in a few months. I guess my questions is what do you recomend out of all the hosts that supports MU with multiple domain blogs? I basicly just want a clean install in the route directory.

    Thanks

    Don’t plan a site move unless you have to; select a host that you will be able to work with for a while.

    Important aspects to hosting, fast turn around on ticket requests to support desk, helpful support desk!.

    If you are not hugely confident in your abilities to manage a dedicated server (not as easy as one might think!) opt for managed server or semi managed.

    The costs you quoted sound high, and personally I wouldn’t choose the two you mention, cloud hosting is a viable approach, companies such as Media Temple offer good entry level VDS packages which can be expanded when required, they also have a strong user/support forum, these can be immensely useful for asking questions and generally gaining a bit of knowledge.

    There is a group here that was setup to start to collate info on hosts I would check that group out and see what others are using and recommending.

    @mrbeno You might want to check through this BP Hosting group: http://buddypress.org/community/groups/buddypress-hosting/forum/ Still a new group, but some good information to get you started.
