    Hello there,

    this is my first post here and here starts my journey.
    I am a total beginner of managing a forum/server and let's see if I can manage them.
    So, I came over from the Xenforo forums to give this a try.
    I am not satisfied with shared hosting companies so I thought of VPS. The problem is that managed ones are out of my budget.
    Probably not a good idea for someone who hasn't open his forum yet, but in the long term I must deal with this sooner or later. Or I pimp my budget up but I am a poor maths student who wants to run a non-commercial place, so no funds for this poor soul :).

    The worst thing what can happen is that my journey leads me back to the shared hosting companies because I don't want to spend my time for managing a server. Anyway, let's see if a noob with zero knowledge can learn the basics, for example installing Centminmod :D.

    Have a nice day @all

    Thank you for the recommendation but I will probably go with a different company.

    Why do you have install guides specially for 3 companies? Is this a kind of an advertising method or does the installation differ from other companies?

    some folks need specific step by step guides for different web hosts as they're completely new to unmanaged web hosting as you can imagine so even the setup of the server before installing Centmin Mod needs explanation :)
