Best hosting for forum only. - mercerkase - 2020-02-16

Hey guys I was using 000webh*st free hosting with parked domain for my forum but they set my website to sleep. So I am looking to buy a hosting plan from hostinger.  I don't have much knowledge with web hosting.

My community is based on a game server that I have hosted and its been 4 days since I created it. We have 20 users with 120+posts on 30+ Threads. 

I am confused which plan to buy. There are two plans:
1. 1st Plan is cheaper with Single Web Hosting
  • [b]1[/b] Website

  • [b]1[/b] Email Account

  • [b]Limited[/b] Bandwidth (100 GB)

  • [b]1X[/b] Processing Power & Memory
2. 2nd Plan is expensive than 1st plan Premium Web Hosting
  • [b]Unlimited[/b]*Number of Websites

  • [b]Unlimited[/b]*Email Accounts

  • [b]Unlimited[/b]*Bandwidth

  • [b]2X[/b] Processing Power & Memory
I am tight on budget because I am already hosting my game server which cost me around 35$ per month. I want to buy 1st plan but I am confused is it enough. I think in future my community will grow upto 1000 users at the end of 2020 and with posts around maybe 20K but I can't guess the post count and threads count. 

Is the 1st plan is enough for me?

Doesn't really matter what you think. Buy for now. Save yourself some coin. You should be able to upgrade plans seamlessly later.
