I am thinking of starting a forum sometime soon, and I would like feedback on this setup.

OVH VPS1 - Running CentOS 7 x64, with NGINX, Maria DB, PHP-FPM, and XCache.

I will also be using CloudFlare's free plan for the time being, but once the forum gets big enough, I might bite the bullet and go for a premium plan.

The specifications of the VPS are 2GB ram, 10GB SSD, 1 vCPU core, 100MB up/down, DDoS Protection.

Also, here's a speedtest for anyone wondering  Tongue :

Edit: I already have 1 VPS from OVH just for testing.
I am the dankest of them all.

I've got a OVH VPS and I'm very impressed with it's speed.

I have used OVH in the past (both dedicated and VPS) and gotta say that their network is pretty conjugated.
What I recommend is getting a RamNode VPS since they have been around for years and I think they are one of very few providers who has solid uptime.
As for DDoS protection, CloudFlare is only going to protect you from layer 4 attacks (unless your backend IP is leaked). So, try Sucuri (they have better WAF than CloudFlare) and you'll be good from Layer 7 attacks as well.

I do like the look of RamNode and Sucuri, but I am on a budget. About $5-$12 a month until the forum gets going then I will look in to upgrading.


Edit: How much visitors would 3TB bandwidth hold Would it be enough for 100-200 concurrent users?

At the moment I use BlazingFast no problems this past month, and in the future I plan on upgrading to Sucuri as they have good deals and great service.

Do you also use BlazingFast for web hosting/vps hosting?

I use an Ubuntu VPS which is great.
Which plan? The 1gb one doesn't look that bad other than it being a little pricey. Also, is it off-shore hosting? It looks like their company is located in Ukraine.
