Anyone recommend a YABB 2.4 web host?
Hello.

I may be about to take over an existing forum currently running on YABB 2.4.

I'd like to continue to use YABB, as I've used it before and conversion to another forum brand sounds like a real headache.

Can anyone recommend a reliable webhost that doesn't get funny when you mention YABB? A UK one would be ideal, but I realise beggars can't be choosers.

Thanks

Steve

I have been with ultimate Web hosting for 18 months, and find them brilliant. I was originaly with Streamline.net but had so much downtime & problems I changed.
I phoned them before signing up, told them I was running YaBB & the very couteouse chap said "that is fine".

On the odd occassion I have requested info from Ultimate, I've had an answer within 2 hours. With Streamline it sometimes took 3/4 days.

I am one happy bunny and upped my plan to 'Unlimited' for £30 per annum wich includes the Domain charge. Smiley

very nice webhost - set me up with a temporary account to test my new forum. Won't take any money off me until I transfer the domain in.

Looks like quite a speedy host, so far.

I asked Heart Internet: I currently run a small Eblah forum on there with their very basic hosting package, and with the cessation of support of Eblah was looking to change. They said it wouldn't be a problem.

GoDaddy has serious issues when it comes to YaBB and Perl support in general.

I would recommend PowWeb hands down over GoDaddy- but check their users forum first. Last year they had some serious issues and a lot of forums bailed. (Including me.) But I have been told they have solved their issues and they may even be some coupons.

BTW - I HATE GoDaddy's 'user friendly control panel' Please tell me why I have to click through four different pages to get to the MySQL admin panel?  Huh

Update - so I don't sound like a dimwit, someone had posted something touting GoDaddy's virtues. Enough said.
