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

  2. 25.51 – WG Spectacle
  3. 21.08 – SJ-WORLD
  4. 20.54 – SHINee Forum International

  2. 1031 – SJ-WORLD
  3. 1359 – Diadem

I try to find the highest percentage of most online users by comparing with total registered users, however most online users counter is including anonymous users too. So here’s the 5 highest percentage of most online users (which is not very accurate):

  2. 24.98% – MightySISTAR

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.

  1. Hi, I do believe this is a great web site. I stumbledupon it 😉 I am going to come back yet again since I bookmarked it.
    Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be
    rich and continue to guide others.

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be really something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  3. Tremendous things here. I’m very satisfied to see your article.
    Thank you so much and I am taking a look forward to touch
    you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?
