best Reseller to best VPS
Coming from a reseller where I havent had any performance spikes, and everything has been working great….what sort of specs should I look for in a VPS in terms of RAM?
I like using cPanel/WHM.
As far as shared hosting, and reseller hosting the main aspects are simply space and bandwidth. Then of course the company ethics and support reliablility and whatnot. From a server aspect, its just space and bandwidth provided.
Im assuming a VPS adds a few new dimensions including RAM.
When looking for a vps, I recommend a HyperVM/OpenVZ combination. You also need to look at a VPS from this standpoint. If you go unmanaged, you can save a boatload of money, however you need to be familiar with SSH and capable of fixing most of the common problems regarding cPanel/servers. If you are unable to do this, you will have to go the route of managed which on average is much more expensive.
You need at least 512MB if you are planning on running cPanel. Anything less will result in a nasty performance hit.
WHT is a great place to start searching for a VPS provider. The offers section, this thread, or “Find a Host” are three great ways to go about getting started.
