vps for magento site


hi,

I need to host my magento site (2-3k hits day) in another server. My current 100tb dedicated is very slow..

can you guys suggest me a hosting company with a decent support, good services and also with good prices ($30 - $40) ?


thanks a lot

You have 0 logic, you are on dedicated saying it is slow, and you want to move to a VPS and think it will be faster? Lol.

I would pay this 30$ to a sys admin to get your server optimized, because I doubt it would run any fast on VPS.

You need a proper Magento specialist who can optimize the server and add some technology to make your site fast.

You need to up your budget above $50 USD and can you use UK location?

From a quick look they start at around $99/mo (excluding specials etc...) You would have to find a VPS that allocated two full 2Ghz cores JUST to your VPS (and 2GB ram, etc...) and then you're still in a shared environment.

Keep in mind that Magento is pretty resource heavy, I agree you should look to optimizations first and see where that takes you.

I aggree. Downgrading is not the right option. If a dedicated server can't handle your magento store how could a vps can handle it?

What are your current server specs?

thank you all for the replies...

I host 10 sites on the same ded. server and 100tb (hosting company) told me that the cause for the whole server to be slow is a problem in my video site's code.. I'm planing to fix this soon, but it can take 1-3 months.

I can't afford to have my ecommerce site (the magento one..) slow for that much time, that's the reason Im looking for a vps..

My current server specs:

Intel Quad Core Xeon 3220 - 4 x 2.40GHz

* 2 x 500GB HDD
* 8GB RAM
* 1 GigE (1000Mbit) dedicated port
* 100TB monthly transfer
* Unmetered Bandwidth (324TB) + $399/mo

with $30 here in Salvador - Brazil you can't get a "sys admin" to even read your e-mail.. It would cost me 10x more and I doubt they could fix anything..

It appears your ecom site is the most important, so you should be looking to somehow getting that troublesome video site off your dedi, instead of looking for a VPS to handle your ecom site.

because the video site is the one that sends traffic to all others. It requires a good server and a lot of bandwidth +- 30TB month

I could find only one company that had this much bandwidth - 100tb

my ecommerce site is jus starting.. its still small and doesn't require much bandwidth, so the price for hosting it should not be too high

Use 100TB to host your videos and may be use a proper dedicated Magento provider like NuBlue for the e-shop

Magento runs fine on a VPS, disk speed is important though. We have many clients who migrated from a dedicated/shared hosting to our cloud. Because of the disk speeds (SAN) they all have a much quicker site now.

Good luck with your search! Go with a provider which is known to have good disks speeds (iops/seeks, not throughput).

for the video site, are you running out of disk i/o, or cpu?

Could you paste the results of the following? (please wait 10 seconds to get full output):

Quote:
iostat -x 10 2
If you don't have iostat, you can install it with "yum -y install sysstat"

If you're seeing a high utilization %, then this could help dramatically if it's the video site slowing you down:

Quote:
blockdev --setra 1024 /dev/sda
as that will set the linux readahead to 512KB on that drive, vs the linux default of 128KB. If you're maxing on disk i/o, this will make a huge difference.

Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this for you.

Looking forward to your reply,
Gabe
