I have a forum which is growing really fast. Due to the present limit of bandwidth I need to go for a hosting with more space and bandwidth.
Can you suggest how much database does a board the size of this board (http://www.ozzu.com) needs ? Say 600 users logged in at anytime and about 300000 posts ? The board is an Invision Power Board so it will have different stats than phpBB like this board. I need to keep a lot of space for growth to this stage. Please give results as accurate as possible.

Don't you have a control panel with details on your usage?

Agreed. Your own stats are best for projecting your space and bandwidth needs.

Future Usage?

Why not see what usage is this month, then wait till next month. From there calculate how much more space and bandwidth you have used, then see from there.

Go 1 day at a time, just make sure you pick a host who can upgrade you easily and fast.

You have daily stats to base your projections on. You do not need to wait a whole month to gauge your expected growth. Besides diskspace and bandwidth consumption will be the least of your problems when you get to be as big as ozzu. CPU and RAM consumption will dictate your hardware and/or hosting needs.
