    VPS Requirements - Reccomend a Host

    Hi All,

    I'm looking at moving my shared reseller hosting to a VPS, purely to give myself more control over the hosting and licensing due to issues I'm having with my current provider.


    I was hoping for some advice on what kind spec of VPS would be best, and if anyone would recommend a particular company? I've had a real long look around, but I'm not really sure what I require.
    I'm currently hosting for 10 customers, most are running a wordpress site, the others a basic HTML site. They also use the CPanel email system moderately. I plan on having CPanel, WHM and possibly WHMCS running, with all customers having their own CPanel account.
    Currently using around 4GB of bandwidth a month, and around 8GB of disk space across all CPanel accounts including my own. This will increase slightly soon, as I'm about to start building 2 more sites for customers who also want hosting from me.

    Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I have some basic knowledge on them - I work in IT in predominantly Windows environments, but there is some linux in there, and I've done a little in my spare time too. I also have some knowledge on Mac Servers, which are based around unix, so similar to linux in many ways (from what I've seen).

    I know there's going to be a lot to learn, and I'm more than willing to learn whatever I need to. I also plan on keeping my old hosting plan running in the meantime, whilst I setup my VPS.

    Your requirements are very small - a small VPS (e.g. 1GB RAM) would likely be enough. Since you're coming from shared hosting, I recommend that you find a company that'll help you out technically when you need it.

    Thanks - What would you say in terms of CPU would be best?

    Is there any reason that you're using two accounts to participate in this thread APlus/gtg93?

    It was a mistake - feel free to delete the message for my other account.

    A fully managed one

    A managed VPS helps. But I think good technical support should be considered

    You'd get a good VPS which fits your needs for EUR 15-25 /mo, plus cPanel / WHM to manage user/reseller accounts. Consider offers with the free migration and good technical support in the Offers section.
    cPanel Web Hosting from €2.99 /mo. | VPS Hosting from €7.99 /mo. | Powerful Dedicated Servers from €59.95 /mo.

    Unless your website starts gaining traffic and you want to futureproof I guess? Does it depend which company you're spamming for at the time of the forum posting perhaps?
