The market is flooded with VPS (virtual private server) hosting options. It seems everyone and their mother has a overloaded server in his/her closet. Enterprise options always seem priced insanely high, which make the ones that are cheap and claim enterprise level seem shaky.

What do you look for in a quality VPS provider (language support, 24/hr tech, etc), and how if at all do you check their credibility?

VPS hosting bridges the gaps between the initial and the entry level web hosting plans and the co-location. While the former offers specified services like PHP/MySQL, etc., with limited disk space on a shared server, the latter lets you fully own and control the hardware, and just rent an internet connection and a rack space from the data center.

You may ask what you will get if you use a VPS account. Firstly, you will get the access to core areas of your server. As said earlier, if you are good at working on a Linux server, you can have full access and control over everything that you wish to do.

This is the best answer and it's the same as my answer. :)

I believe that the truth comes out of comparison research.. On the account of the fact I can recommend you to check such reliable hosts as Hostcats.com, Pinellashosting.com and VPSland.com - all are stable and trustworthy.
Try to compare all web hosting services, as it is a top priority for your new web host business to be well-provided with all necessary tools and choose the best.

I will recommend you to opt for a Managed VPS server. Managed VPS hosting means the hosting provider manages the VPS for you. The hosting provider takes care of all the Technical issues which occur from time to time. He also updates the OS patches, security patches and takes care of all the security aspects of your server. If you have any issues with your server, you just need to contact your hosting provider and his support staff will take care of the issue from there onwards. As far as creditability is concerned, you might know that a Reliable host offers a 24X7 Technical support. So you can check their level of management by initiating a Live chat, call them or mail them in Midnight or in weekends. If you get a positive reply from them, you can consider them as reliable and opt for their hosting services. You must also check their SLA and TOS before signing up. You can even check their reviews on various forums and if they are having their own forums, you can check how many clients are satisfied with their services and what are the issues which the existing clients are facing.

For those that have the knowledge about how to manage a VPS then is OK one that is unmanaged and there are many options to select from. On the other hand, for those that feel more confortable having the support from the provider I would suggest a managed VPS and also out there are many alternatives where they are configured and ready set up. Some offer add-ons for a price monthly and different capacity depending what you need or if later on you decide to upgrade for one that allow you use higher resources.

When selecting cheap website hosting, be sure that the web host provider is trustworthy. Try to ask around people about their perceptions on the web host company.

While looking for a VPS, you must look for a Managed VPS. Managed VPS hosting means the hosting provider manages the VPS for you. The hosting provider takes care of all the Technical issues which occur with the server. He also updates the OS patches, security patches and takes care of all the security issues of your server. If you have any issues with your server, you just need to contact your hosting provider and his support staff will take care of the issue from there onwards. Whereas in Unmanaged one you are the one who takes care of the server. So if there is any issue, you won't get any help from the hosting provider. This might result in downtime and you might loose your clients and suffer heavy losses. People prefer to choose a Managed VPS as compared to Unmanaged one, so that they can concentrate on their Business and let the hosting provider manage the server.

Tips on Finding the Right Web Hosting Company For You

by admin on Jun.16, 2011, under Tutorial

For the average Joe off the street looking to set up his own website, be it for business reasons or purely for entertainment, the process of selecting a Web Hosting solution can sometimes be enough to deter them from following through with their great idea. Does this sound like you? If it does, fear not! This article takes a look at some of the basic factors that should influence your decision, as well as some FAQs from others who are currently trying to select their own Web Host.

What is Web Hosting?

Web hosting is the process of storing your website on a web hosting server which is permanently connected to the internet. The simplest/cheapest web hosting packages will simply provide you with a small amount of space and bandwidth where you can store what is called a Static HTML Website. These are the simplest form of websites. Static sites don’t get updated often and are usually just a very basic source of information. More dynamic websites (websites which change and update often) require a little more from a hosting server. Dynamic sites are usually sites which require scripts to be run and installed on the hosting server. The most popular scripting languages often required for dynamic sites are ASP, ASP.NET, PHP and PERL. Dynamic sites will also need servers that have access to a database. Therefore, before even starting to decide on a host, it is important that you know exactly what sort of website you want to set up.

Where can I find out about different Web Hosts?

Well, if you have any friends in the internet industry, ask them who they’d recommend. Otherwise, simply type "Web hosting South Africa" into Google and browse some of the top results in South Africa.

What makes a good Web Hosting Company?

There are three main factors that should influence your decision when deciding on a Web Hosting site:

SECURITY: You need to make sure that the host has a proven track record of being safe and secure. Ensure that they have the correct measures in place to avoid being hacked by any unwanted computer nerds.

RELIABILITY: Check out the host’s uptime track record. "Uptime" refers to the percentage of time that the hosts are actually online and people are actually able to access your site. Smaller, less well renowned hosts tend to have a lot of downtime due to technical errors or teething problem which is why more reputable companies such as Web Africa, who have been around the block and back, are a much better option.

SERVICE: This is a huge factor. As a webmaster of your site, you will most likely need to be in close contact with the hosting company on a regular basis. It is important that they have suitable processes in place that enable you to contact them without any fuss or issues. Some companies have instant web messengers which allow you to chat instantly to support technicians. Others have dedicated emergency phone lines that mean you will never be stuck in a caller queue.

Do not settle for anything but the best, even if it means you have to pay a little extra instead of getting free web hosting.

Should you host locally or overseas?

Technically speaking, it doesn’t really matter. In the past, their used to be massive differences in response time if you were accessing servers overseas, but thanks to fiber optic cables and other technical trends, it is no longer an issue. Factors you do need to consider however are payment, cost and time zones.

First, I recommend you have a good idea of your needs and then take a overview to other users. Check what is the server's downtime/uptime? what is the security level to that particular provider? and about their technical support???

It is essential to consider that the web host offers the VPS servers of the best quality. A virtual private server must provide with superior connectivity to ensure that each server ensures optimum performance and flexibility in order to run large websites and install third party applications with ease.

The purchase of a VPS is like buying any other type of accommodation. Just do your homework. Look at several providers and select three or four that you think are good for you. This is the most important "needs." Make sure you know what you want before you go shopping.

Are you using the VPS a forum in which he grew up in a shared hosting? If so, then you must make sure that growth is going to be easy for you to increase resources. look at the different types of VPS. Xen for various types of operating systems, or perhaps OpenVZ has a lower server load, but is limited in the operating system can perform. VPS provider have a range of dedicated servers so you can continue to grow with the same company?

Are you a reseller web host, it needs to expand? Then search for companies that specialize in this area.

Ensure your hosting provider offers adequate security options to ensure the integrity of your virtual private server. This means secure shell access, lots of backups, and ideally some kind of firewall. Otherwise, you’re putting your Internet data at risk: A fate we assume you’d rather avoid if possible.
