Have you seen Vultr?
You didn't mention that in your original post. A good portion of that amount goes towards the management. That is different than maintenance & support. Any of the price ranges you were given above almost assuredly does NOT include full management services. Those would be an outside cost.Yes I got managed now and would keep it
Yes, very happy. Great network, hardware, interface, cheap. You will need a server management service that specializes in XF. Ken (mysiteguy ) and MattW should be able to help you with that.Is anybody happy with Hetzner?
As a leading webhosting provider and experienced datacenter operator in Germany, Hetzner Online offers professional hosting solutions for a fair price.www.hetzner.com
I would like to switch from the AWS because they are just too expensive for what they deliver (few/little vCPUs + RAM for EC2, RDS, ES) and could imagine a root or dedicated server (I am not a good Linux admin myself and would have to ask others for help) or their cloud services. The latter are also expensive if you go for dedicated hardware.
Consider to host on a relatively cheap VPS by Vultr, Linode, Digital Ocean and have a XenForo hosting expert set it up and manage it.I am currently on:
Poweredge R320 - with 8Gb of memory RAM ( DDR3 ) and 2 array raid by 500GB ( sata ) and 120 GB ( SSD )
they offer maintainance and support
I pay around around 1800$ a year
Is there anything better?
