I have a wordpress site hosted on ‘inmotion hosting’ with a basic yearly plan of around $50/year.
Now I want to add a forum to my website.
Do I need to now opt for another hosting provider like Digital Ocean and spend additional money?
Can’t I use Discourse with inmotion hosting and my current plan?
Thanks for the answer.
Just one more query, since I am not very versed with web hosting and things.
Say I am expecting a max of 500-1000 comments on my forum per month.
And do not expect more than 1000 people signup for the first 2 years.
What would be the minimum configuration that I must opt for, which is easy on the pocket as well as performs decent enough?
I am considering Digital Ocean, but open to other suggestion.
1 gb ram and 2 gb of swap should be enough to get started. You can always do a server upgrade if traffic increases.
Any hosting you choose the basic requirement is that they support docker. The first hostings that comes to mind, in addition to DO, are Hetzner, OVH, Scaleway, UpCloud and Vultr but you can find more information here:
