Shared Hosting RAM Vs Virtual Private Server (VPS) RAM

Nov 24, 2007

I have a reseller shared hosting plan that allows for 50 sub-accounts and I'm using about 20. I am looking at getting a VPS with between 256 - 394 mb RAM and am wondering if I were to move all of my accounts to the new VPS would I be ending up with less RAM to use for all of my sites.

To put this another way how do most reseller plans manage RAM usage? Do each of my sub-accounts have access to say 64 mb RAM so that if I were to use all 50 sub accounts I would have access to 50*64 mb.

From what I've experienced and read with shared hosting my thought is I could end up with less access to server resources, CPU and RAM, with a VPS plan - though with VPS the resources are more guaranteed rather than being dependent on the usage of other accounts on the server.

The reason I am looking at a VPS account is that I have a site that will likely have 1000s of users with a server intensive script (Moodle) and I know it would violate the reseller account agreement. So maybe my plan should be to keep the reseller account and use it for my database driven sites and use the VPS for the server intensive site and my html based sites.

Also, my VPS choice seems to be narrowed down to Liquidweb, JaguarPC and Zone - has anybody heard of any negative experiences with Liquidweb? I can't find any.

Virtual Private Server (VPS) Or Shared Hosting?

Mar 16, 2009

Hi, is anyone know the advantage of VPS hosting vs shared hosting? I found a cheap VPS plan at 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?

dual quad xeon
300gb monthly transfer

I guess the 30mbps speed is fine but will the 300gb be enough and what about the RAM?

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) :: VPS (Virtual Private Server) Hosting

Jul 28, 2007

I am looking for somewhere in the US or Canada that can host a VPS with the following requirements:

10gb space

200gb bandwidth
2 ips (or 1 with cheap price for an extra ip)

Upgraded From Shared Hosting To A Virtual Server Help ...

May 28, 2008

I'm familiar with shared hosting but a complete novice to virtual servers, I'm getting the following error message when I go to my new virtual server IP [url]





Now am I getting that because...

a) I need to set something up in the PLESK control panel thing or

b) Is it a DNS issue? Its only been 30 hours since the migration from shared hosting.

I was told when I upgraded that I wouldn't have to do anything and there would be no interruption as the site would continue to use the shared hosting until the virtual one was set.

Is it a question of waiting for the DNS to update so it points to [url]: or do I have to set something up?

List Of Dedicated Providers With Private Or Virtual Private Racks

Sep 4, 2008

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.

Suggestions For Virtual Private Server (VPS)

May 22, 2007

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 sounds tempting, but VPSLink has attractive price points. 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.

Slow Virtual Private Server (VPS)

Jul 29, 2006

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?

Very Cheap Virtual Private Server (VPS)?

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.

Dedicated Or (VPS) Virtual Private Server?

Apr 6, 2009

At the moment I run a small membership site. The site mainly consists of creating, downloading a lot of files using fwrite (Based on what the user enters).

Last months stats were just under 30GB of data transferred.

I'm currently with HostGator Business Plan ($12.99/month).

I run a LOT of database connections per minute. I am looking to increase the size of my membership site at which point it will be likely that I am running at least 1 DB connection per second.

Can anyone recommend me a decent priced VPS/Dedicated server for my needs?

The usage will probably be around 50GB/month.

HostGator have shutdown my site a couple times last month due to excessive number of running processes (Limited to 25) so I have decided to leave them.

Customized Virtual Private Server (VPS)

Jul 27, 2007

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?

How To Setup A VPS (Virtual Private Server)

Sep 29, 2008

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.

Shared Hosting Vs. Virtual Dedicated

Nov 14, 2008

let me say that my opinion may not be popular but I am very comfortable as a GoDaddy customer.

I currently have a virtual dedicated server and am a newbie when it comes to linux management.

I am contemplating moving to a shared hosting account since the servers are preconfigured. My concern is slowing down the site.

Our site currently receives 1,700+ visitors per day since it was launched a month ago. We expect this to at least increase to 10,000+ per day.

Does a chart exist to say something like if you have this many visitors then this is what time of hosting account you should have?
