    Why don't you use a CDN for this website, and why is gzip disabled? It would make everything so much faster. Enabling gzip would be possible (and free), since you said you're on a dedicated server. CND would cost money and it would improve things dramatically. It isn't free, but it's cheap. MaxCDN offers 1TB of data for 50 bucks now.

    Just random geeky thoughts :coffee:

    Would this be a really controversial comment if I knew what it meant?

    cdn is a third party content delivery network. it uses a farm of servers to send the site's static content to users rather than requiring Dawg's server to handle all of it. on sites with loads of content that doesn't change it makes the sites appear very fast to users while removing the load from the main servers.

    i'm just curious because generally php BB sites are not static content. the content is generated on each page refresh from small graphic primitive files, plus VB is ajax heavy which means the content is constantly being refreshed atomically between page refreshes.

    plus i don't see any page load delays. when i load my debugger i see page loads of under 2/3 second.

    Cloud is better these days. We may have to go cloud if we continue to grow.
