Do you have a busy site that needs to move to a VPS, but you're confused about the choices? An un-managed VPS requires a huge learning curve to configure, harden and manage, and a managed VPS is expensive.
If you'd rather focus on managing your site's forums, Wordpress blog, or Drupal/Joomla CMS ... but still need the flexibility and power a VPS gives you ... HOSTkabob has a solution for you.
Site Virtual Servers are single-site VPS, with basic management features. Starting at just $10 per month, these are custom-configured based on your needs.
Are these for you?
These are designed for the webmaster who wants to get his site on line, and has no desire to fiddle around with server configuration, security issues, etc. I manage the the VPS, and do not provide shell access. Your access to the server is via FTP and, optionally, Kloxo, the free control panel we will install upon demand. cPanel is also available at an additional cost of $15 per month.
The price above includes hosting of a single domain. Multiple domains can be hosted on the server at additional charge.
We do not automatically provision any of our accounts. Each SVS is provisioned and configured individually after consultation with you, a process that can take 2 days.
Use and content must still conform to our Terms of Service. You cannot use these servers for proxies, MineCraft servers, etc.

Hi, I have noticed your Single SIte VPS offer and I would be interested by you svs-2 enterprise edition but I would need some details
If I take the cpanel option, and let's say 5 domain names, does cpanel comes for all domain names?
Yes, you would have a separate cPanel login for each domain added to the SVS server, using the standard login URL of http://some-domain-name.com/cpanel. It would work very much like a shared account, where each domain has its own cPanel, FTP account, webmail, etc. You can specify the disk space, number of email accounts, etc. for each domain, or I can manage that dynamically as your sites grow.
OK thank you for your help. Sure it will help also help other potential customers. I really think it's worth it when you don't know much about dealing with a VPS
It really is geared more towards a person who has a single busy site that they want on a VPS, but don't want to deal with any of the server issues. Even the ones we may think are easy, such as setting up accounts, emails, etc. are too time consuming for a busy small business owner to bother with.
Most of my clients are not at all technical, and rely on me to do the full management of their site, sometimes create their content, etc. Some do log into apps like Wordpress and create their own blog posts, but rely on me to update the software when needed, etc.
