For the past couple of days, I've been thinking about signing up with Dreamhost. The deals seem pretty good and I've seen many people on this forum say they're a great hosting company.
I just have a few questions though. What are CPU minutes and how are they calculated? I've read that the limit is 60, but that's all I know.
Would it be possible for me to install the vBulletin forum software with a Shared hosting plan and if so, would it use a lot of CPU minutes? I know Bandwidth wouldn't be a problem, but it's the possibility of going over in CPU minutes is what I'm concerned with.
I was also thinking of setting up the site with Wordpress and use it as a small blog. Would this combined with vBulletin(if installation is possible) make me go over in CPU minutes?
I was thinking of having just a small community of users and not making it a huge site. If it turned into a huge site, I would definately try to get a dedicated server.
Any help would be great. Thanks in advance if anyone can help me.
