Hetzner eh ? I use them also. In fact, Sudonix is hosted in Nuremberg 👍
yes i’m also at hetzner, i have been a customer there for years with a reseller account for domains. My VPS that I host there are also in Nuremberg 🙂
Or course there is no right answer to this question, it depends on the creators needs and preferences mainly as to which software is chosen, and costs of course some packages can cost an arm and a leg literally .
This got me thinking, I’m running NodeBB just like this platform, but if you had unlimited money to throw at a project, would you still chose what you run now?
@jac great question. I don’t think there is in fact any right or wrong answer for this, and as you’ve indicated, much of the decision would be based on individual requirements.
That said, I have started writing a comparison / review of NodeBB and Flarum - as you know, I’ve used both access I always promised I’d provide a fair review of both products side by side.
Then of course, there’s the usual suspects such as
To name but a few - and yes, I’ve used them all - with varying degrees of success.
I’m going to invite @katos to this discussion…
WBB Worltlab Susite https://www.woltlab.com/
@riekmedia I think my real issue with Woltlab is the cost
You can also host it yourself, in which case you pay a one-time fee for the license with a one-year update.
But I also find it too expensive in the long run, especially when you start a project where no turnover is generated itself.
But it’s a nice forum software. I have 2 licenses
@riekmedia that’s interesting. I didn’t realise you could self host. However, looking at the available plugins, they seem very expensive.
@phenomlab there are plenty of plugins for WBB. Free sovie paid and also massive designs
@riekmedia Yes, but the ones that add any useful functionality aren’t free.
@phenomlab some don’t, but I switched to Nodebb and wanted to stick with it.
@riekmedia Same here
This is very interesting.
I’ll hold off my comments for now but I’ll be sure to post here soon
