Need help & suggestion concerning my forum

The last time I ran a major paid promotion for my site I ran outta memory load allowance for my server .

When I checked back I discovered that my forum eats the hell outta the server since my blog is cached and served with up to 2hrs expiry time .

Now I was wondering if there is any way I can use one of those cdn services like cloudlare, jsdeliver etc on a subdomain 'cos I really do not want to use any external cloud service for my main domain .

the forum is located @ forum.obasimvilla.com

Why don't you use a CDN http://www.maxcdn.com/pricing/

Are you on a dedicated server, VPS or shared web hosting?

On my blog I have the W3 total cache plugin but my web host (websynthesis.com) configured the plugin. I also use the free cloudflare account but If I was to start a forum again, I'd go for paid CDN.

What you could do is ask both websites that I've mentioned some pre-sales questions like you did on this forum. See which one will better suite your needs and price range.

Okay I went to cloudflare today to purchase a plan after making up my mind 'cos of the next campaign in my plans.

Their pricing plan is so cool for sure, but I decided to try out their free plan first, Now i discovered that my forum doesn't obey my initial .htcss rule of redirecting www. xxx to http ://xxx. instead it moves that to my home page .

ex. if you enter my forum this way www,forum. it redirects you to http://obasimvilla.com and when I removed this particular settings it started showing "Server not found" the only way you can access it now is by entering http ://forum directly or entering obasimvilla.com/forum .


all I need now it's if there is any possibility of redirecting www. to http ://forum 'cos it was working all fine before now
