    * Hello~~ Semoweb VPS help... For a blog and Forum + NGINX - HELP please :) Thanks

    Hello~~
    I am new here, so please bare with me. If this is wrong section, please move it and accept my apology. I am still learning.

    I am interested in Semoweb.com VPS hostings.

    Here is what my requirement.

    1. -- A blog about chef cooking. This is nothing big. Few visitor a day with adsense ad, money on the side

    2. -- A forum about coffee. 160 members, some-what active. Also has a few adsense ad, money in the side, hehehe

    3. -- Must be able to run nginx. My website is slow without nginx, so VPS must work with nginx.

    4. -- Must support Centos.

    5. -- Locate in the US. Must have good review.

    I have found semoweb.com VPS , only $3.50, it is cheap, and also have many good review here ! My friend told me to go with them as he has a VPS too and he say its good.

    Question for you. Should I go with Semoweb.com for my needs above? Their VPS is so cheap so I won't have to worry about bills!

    But I've one doubt. Can I host my blog, forum, nginx on there VPS? If so What package should I Get? Also do they support CENTOS??

    Also if you have any other suggestion. Let me know ! My budget is under $10 per month.

    Thanks~~

    If you consider $3.50 to be soo cheap, it might be beneficial for you to go for SemoWebs other plans, as you might potentially have some issues running it on the lowest plan. However, you should just give it a try and see how it goes, since $3.50 is soo cheap!

    SemoWeb is a fantastic company to go for, I have heard many good things about them.

    I would suggest you go for the third plan for $5.75 and then upgrade as required.

    Some users are requesting certain pages too many times. Nginx prevents high load by giving outdated pages instead of having to regenerate the info over and over...

    I know that you have already signed up, but I am working on my second month with a SemoWeb VPS. I have had no problems with the thing at all. The uptime has been 100% besides a reboot that I did to change out a MTA. My VPS is in Dallas, and I am running this special: http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/semowe...openvz-dallas/
