"Good service with good support"

What do you like best?

I have been using vBulletin software for over a decade and a big pain point was dealing with all the infrastructure, upgrades, backs and all that stuff. When I heard vBulletin Cloud would do that for you I got pretty excited about it. After trying for a month I can say the service provided is quite good and they do deliver what is promised.

What do you dislike?

My main complain is not about the vBulletin Cloud service itself but the "product" they use on their cloud service: vBulletin Connect. You can read more about it on my "vBulletin Connect" review, but long story short: vBulletin Connect (vB5) is nothing alike the previous vB3 and vB4 versions and I got pretty disappointed about it. If I could have vBulletin Connect running vB4 I'd be very satisfied.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It solves one of the main pain points of running an online discussion website. You don't have to worry about infrastructure, performance and updates anymore. Definitely worth a try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Easy to use forum"

What do you like best?

Easy forum setup. Great way to converse with forum members and share ideas. Love the privacy settings and the ability to message members from within the forum.

What do you dislike?

A bit challenging to carryover older versions of Vbulletin to newer versions. Especially if your community is very text/image heavy. Uploading images is a bit cumbersome (can't simply upload directly from your device (computer/iphone) -- photos must be hosted somewhere), but there are other apps that provide an easy work-around to this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Community involvement, chat features.
