Professional Vanilla Hosting

edited August 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Would there be any interest in all-inclusive professional Vanilla hosting?

    the problem with build in forum by host is that they are locked down. u cannot upgrade it and have to wait for the hosting company to upgrade it. Like Go daddy which took forever to upgrade to Wordpress 2.0
    Its just better than I install it myself so i can have complete control over it

    I think he's talking about a specialist vanilla host rather than a standard host who adds the vanilla packs to their install section - and if so, there have been a few discussions about this already thirstyg. I was considering setting it up post v1 release with Marks permission, however he wasnt too keen on the idea because he was planning to do something similar himself in an effort to make some money off the back of all his hard work over the last few years. Someone else came along and said they were gonna do it anyway but I dont know if anything ever came of it. I dunno how popular it would be but personally I'd check Marks current view on the situation before dont have to by the rules of the licence but it's only considerate imo.

    You obviously don't have to ask anyone- if you're thinking about it, take the capitalistic stance and go for it :)

    Bryght did a great job of this for Drupal.

    Agree with Bird...

    So hurry up Mark... I'd trust you more with my data than thirsty (no offense)
    especially since I'd have the added benefit of immediate security updates! :)

    Yes, I am looking for exactly that right now: all-inclusive, professional, Vanilla hosting.
    And will pay a fair price, too -- not looking for cheap or free.

    This is my first post here.
    I have just started a small forum, and wish to put it on Vanilla right away.
    I don't want to do anything myself, other than simple admin.
    If you offer full-service, with Vanilla experience and expertise, please contact me.
    Thank you.

    Hi, Yes, I'm also looking for a hosting - so why not ? But with all add ons and a possibility to custom them.

    I can offer a fully hosted vanilla service - I will happily install the forum for you and then provide you with full login details for your account so you can customise it to your hearts content (and even use it for standard web hosting too, if you like) - I'll also be around to help out if something goes wrong. My bare-bones hosting prices can be found at - naturally for more of a 'managed' service there will be a significant additional cost. If you'd like to talk numbers then feel free to get in touch.

    if vanilla is really too difficult to install that would mean that it is a peace of crap ;-)
