I am about to strangle self because right now, I am setting up a phpBB forum for my church. The hosting is from local (from my island) and I think they paid RM78 for the whole year hosting. It is hosted on Windows NT and I do not have access to cpanel.
I have two other phpBB forums and hence, I am familiar with stuffs which is why I undertook to set up the forum. Both forums are hosted in US. But this forum is hosted in Penang (Malaysia).
I notice that things are really, really slow and sometimes, the pages do not download fully. It has nothing to do with the internet speed because my other pages on other websites work just fine.
So, to all the techie guys out there – Could it be the webhost that is causing these lag? We haven’t open the forum to the parishioners and public yet so I need to solve it now. I do not want to end up with a dinosaur which cause everyone frustrated. Help please! I am banging head on the keyboard with the speed and the half-loaded pages.
If it is the hosting that is the problem, do you think upgrading on this Exb company will help?
