I would like to understand what is the difference between VPS and a VDS. I understand they sound the same, however from a cost stand point VPS is way cheaper than VDS, and I am not very sure of the reason.
i'm trying to get a graphical interface for a VPS I recently bought. I'm currently running Ubuntu Minimal 8.01. I've read some instructions on how to install the GUI, and VNC. I cannot get this to work, does anyone have any insight?
I am currently with the planet and am happy with them, however as part of a new venture I need to gather a list of hosts as well as the planet that will be able to cater to the ventures needs and go to tender with the requirements.
ThePlanet offer something called a virtual rack. This is cheaper than renting a dedicated rack, allows for Gb networking but doesnt not allow for a SAN. Do other providers offer something similar? The cost of putting a machine on the virtual rack is not that much more expensive than just renting the machine. I guess there isn't too much to these set-ups to be fair.
If not, then we are looking for dedicated racks, with the ability to host a SAN at some point, but starting off with say 3 servers (2 web servers, 1 storage server with raid5 6Tb of hdd). These servers will be dealing with network cameras although I don't think that many will be streaming at once but the network capacity does need to be there.
Who's door should I be knocking on to find out some prices?
One final thing, should I bother looking for co-lo providers as well? We are in the Uk but not precious about our host being in the same country at all (it would be nice but uk prices are ££). Really, all we would be able to do with co-lo is buy the hardware outright to save price as we are not interested in looking after the hardware.
I am looking for a reliable managed VPS host which has servers/or is based in the UK. I am transferring a high traffic site, and I'm looking for recommendations for a host offering the following:
-Managed VPS -Reliable servers -Good support, with native English language staff -U.K. based data center Any suggestions for hosts would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone had experience with clustered.net as I have seen they have a package?
I am "simply" looking to run a Joomla! community site with an estimated 250 - 500 and then eventually up to 1,000 users onine at one time. The main attraction will be the user forums and profiles. I don't plan on having any videos or anything like that, but I will install a mambot that will integrate Google Video, etc.
I am trying to pick a VPS provider and from what I have read so far, I have kind of narrowed it down to a few places:
From reading alot so far, I would imagine I would need at least 256-512MB of RAM. Plesk sounds like a good control panel since I won't be reselling any of the space. Webmin sounds too hands on, and I know a little bit, but not a lot. The backup option that comes with Spry.com sounds tempting, but VPSLink has attractive price points. Mediatemple.net also gives you 1TB of bandwidth, a very attractive option.
I am "simply" looking to run a Joomla! community site with an estimated 250 - As long as the site can run MySQL, I am happy. Joomla!, statistics software (any suggestions) and WordPress and that is about it as far as applications.
Any suggestions on what plans or who I should go with? My budget is about $t50 a month.
The subject line pretty much sums up my major problem. My site has been intermittently slow (somtimes slow, sometimes not) for... like since I can remember. So my site isn't that big
Sometimes for me it takes forever to load a vbulletin page, or even the main page of the site. I thought I had found the problem (a mysql-intensive script), removed it, improved things quite a bit, but there is still a long way to go!
Many site users report the same exact things. "The site is sloowww" ... "It wasn't slow yesterday but it is today" ... "Today it's really fast, but last week I was having problems pulling up pages".
Its fustrating becase this is a VPS, and although I know how to use Cpanel, WHM is really big and I am not sure what I could do to speed up my website or to even begin to locate any potential problems.
My site is basically Joomla CMS, vBulletin BBS and 4images image gallery. The later two use a common user database. My current mysql usage is 327.55MB in total. Apache 1.3.34, PHP 4.4.1 and MySQL 4.1.19-standard. Powered by WHM/Cpanel & Virtuozzo.
What should I do? Where can I start? Where can I look?
I'm just wondering if people could point me in the direction of cheap VPS's - like under $10/month, but ideally nearer $5/month if such a thing exists..
I'm looking for one to host slave DNS so I obviously want it to be fast and reliable but I dont need it to be 100% mega reliable in the sense that an outage here and there wouldn't be the end of the world as there will be no web sites hosted on it.
Actually , I have some hosting customers in a Reseller Plan with HostGator.Paying $24.95/month,24GB(Space)/250GB (Bandwith) with WHM,CPanel,free WHMCS and free Enom Account and also a good support and great Uptime.
I'm planning to migrate to a VPS.Can you recommend a good VPS,with the same budget,WHM,CPanel,WHMCS,Enom and also a good support and uptime.
I have a VPS and i have a VoIP phone that i use (i use it alot) i was putting credit into my account then i thought why cant i install my own VoIP Server. I started searching and came up with some software but now iam stuck.
What i realy like to do is have a VoIP server installed on my VPS

What is the best software to use?
Do you have to pay for the software?
Is there somesort of webapplication so i can easily configure the software?
Can you make calls to other VoIP servers and Home Landlines?
I am completely new to VPS. Currently I have a website on shared hosting, but I'm starting getting problems with it: more precisely CPU exceeded and "slow MySql queries" problems - though MySql code is top notch. Traffic is about 100 G a month, and users' number growing day by day.
It seems I do need a VPS now. But since I am all new, I need to ask if a VPS account provides:
- MySql databases - Cron jobs - etc.
Basically, this question translates into this: does a VPS account offer everything else a shared hosting offers, and in addition guaranteed ram?
PS: I do need a CPU guarantee (don't know the exact name) meaning that if my processes get close to RAM limit, all processes are automatically diminished so that the site is still running... very slowly but running... (rather than killing the site)PS: I tried to find the VPS offers link as I am trying to get to see the current VPS offers of several companies, but can't find it. Do you mind giving the link?
Thank you, and sorry for the mess... I know I might be a pain in the a**, but I've got to ask in order to learn... You guys had a starting point as well, right?
I have a dedicated server with iWeb, but due to revenues being cut short, I'm in search for a new host. Possibly a VPS host that isn't expensive or a shared host.
Anyways.. I'm looking for a good host (nothing like the oversellers at Dreamhost) that would work for me.
I'd be hosting some domains-- about 10. Three are majorly active, 1 is moderately active, and the others are hardly active.
I've tried Dreamhost's shared hosting (along with a PS from them) and that night (my first night with them), their servers went down. HostRefugee, tried them, the server couldn't handle the load and was quite slow. (may be due to coding)
So yeah, suggestions? I know how to setup a VPS if needed.
I already have a great reliable Linux VPS from WiredTree. They are awesome service. Too bad they don't offer any Windows VPS.
Anyone have any suggestions for a good Windows VPS? I don't need it managed much. It just has to be secure and offer mysql. A panel would be nice but not really needed. Also I would like the VPS to have a good and fast setup time too.
1.) Ordered and paid for a new vps on 2009-09-22 2.) 2009-09-25 and 2009-09-30 open tickets to ask why still not setup new vps, but just forward to 'The concerned department and concerned person', vps still not setup 3.) Service still Pending set up
I had been looking for an affordable VPS plan. Luckly I found this one at digitallinx.com. It costs me $5 a month, I installed mysql, apache, tomcat and they have been running smoothly with this VPS instance. To get a similar plan, it could cost at least $30 a month from other big providers like 1and1 and godaddy. Also their support is timely and very helpful.
Hi, is anyone know the advantage of VPS hosting vs shared hosting? I found a cheap VPS plan at in2net.com. I can get 15G space, 200G bandwidth and 256 RAM for $9.95 a month. My site starts getting a lot of users, it might be an issue with shared hosting. My site also hosts a forum, and currently has 1000 unique visitors and 8000 pageviews daily. Sometime the forum has 30-50 concurrent members.
So, I'm just wondering in my case, wihch one would you choose, VPS or shared hosting? since they are the same price. I don't know how to manage servers, but my friend has a unmanaged server at theplanet, and he hasn't managed the server at all since he had it. So, if a VPS host comes with all the scripts installed, in this case, it doesn't require any management, am I right? oh, one more quesiton, is the plesk control panel works like whm panel? where each client has his own control panel?
