I am unsure of the speed issue. I am further NE of exeterdad's location and most of the time I am not having an issue, however on an occasion I do experience some slowness. The SuperGamer forums are also hosted on this same host, and there doesn't seem to be such an issue with the SG's forum. I suspect that might be due to the differences in the amount of traffic of the two? (which could be weird because our host is always offering us "specials" on getting "more traffic" , and I can't see why they would if it's a traffic issue)
I will be contacting the host for some assistance over this issue, but it will be after the 4th's weekend.
We do pay a lot for this host, and they have been good to us, so I am sure that they will be able to assist us on clearing this up.
Now with that aside, I would recommend either of Vec's solutions, especially the bluehost one (if it works better for everyone), as they do offer a bit more than the SG's host does, but I cannot verify their performance on an actual web service.
My recommendation is because it would be better to have all of the VL stuff into one domain.
On behalf of the SuperGamer, I apologize for the performance issues. Second I would like to mention that it is an honor for the SuperGamer to be able to give something back to VectorLinux for their support on the SG, and giving some space / bandwidth for the VL forum is the least that could be done to show some appreciation.
