I have looked at NodeBB after seeing a few websites using this. Very clean & simple, yet modern.
I currently run a wordpress website using bbpress, and I can't wait to uninstall it, it's not fantastic to say the least.
I have no experience in Node.JS and wouldn't know where to start with installing quite honestly, I am just wondering what the expected costs are to get a Freelancer/Dev to create the Forum software for my site? Any help would be appreciated as my website isn't getting any traffic yet, and I want to keep costs to a minimum in case it never does become a success.
I've trawled the Forum and have a few notes:
I don't have a VPS, though have looked at digital ocean, from one of many posts i have read recommending it, but I am in contract with Siteground so can't get the VPS for 7 months.
I have contacted the sales team at nodebb, but I feel like their quotes may be out of my price range
I'm not sure if the below helps but its my server information from my Siteground GrowBig Account.
I have read about SSH on this forum and it says I have full access to that ?
Simultaneous Server Processes: 20
Simultaneous Connections from Single IP: 15
CPU Seconds / Program and Script Executions: 2000/hour, 20000/day, 600000/month
Average Process Execution Time per Day: 2 seconds
Shared Service CPU Usage: No more than 20% for a period longer than 10 seconds
Server Memory per Process: 768 MB
Minimum Cron Job Interval: 30mins
Any Help would be fantastic, If anything I would like to know a rough estimation of costs, so I don't get shafted by a Freelancer if i choose that route.
