Since majority fan forums are using IP.Board, so let’s do some summary on the statistics shown on the site:

5 highest number of posts:

  1. 5344703 – Soshified
  2. 1561663 – SHINee Forum International
  3. 1487358 – SJ-WORLD
  4. 1098778 – 2ONEDAY

  2. 25.51 – WG Spectacle
  3. 21.08 – SJ-WORLD

Now let’s get technical. Disclaimer: these info are retrieved by inspecting HTTP header & using network tools available online, no hacking or cracking involved.

PHP versions: 10 sites using version 5.4.7, while one site each using version 5.3.24, 5.3.23, 5.3.10 and 5.2.17.So, hosting providers that still using PHP 5.2, please upgrade.

Server: 10 sites using Lighttpd (these sites seem to be hosted by same hosting provider), 5 using Apache, 3 using Nginx and 1 using Litespeed.

Soshified is the only one hosted by AWS and has Cloudflare enabled.

14 sites are gzip-encoded – web pages are compressed, which results in smaller size & faster transfer.

Domain registrar: 7 sites registered with Namecheap, 6 with GoDaddy, 2 with eNom and one site each registered with Bluehost, ReDeHost, HostGator, domainname.com & NameSilo.
