    Setting up a VPS and just need a little clarification.

    I posted this through the Knownhost website about 6 hours ago...but not heard back yet....

    Needs
    I have a reseller account (shared hosting), and want to move to a VPS server now. I only host 6 sites right now, but that will increase in the future. All are low-mid visits per month. Nothing heavy. BUT, I also want to set up an area for Node.js testing (I'm a designer/dev).

    - With that need in mind, will this work as a scalable setup for my needs? (using KH VP-2 as an example, but I guess any stable alternative is an option)

    1536MB Guaranteed RAM
    60GB RAID-10 Disk Space
    2x Priority 8+ CPUs
    4000GB Premium Bandwidth

    Signup
    I currently have my main website (for sign-ups and business - "ex. mydomain.COM") url as my private nameserver and account domain. From what I understand, this is not ideal Should I set up my my secondary domain ("mydomain.NET") as my nameserver and account?

    Thanks for any guidance on this guys.

    Where did you post this? I don't see any posts in our forums nor any sales tickets this old. We certainly don't take 6 hours to respond.

    First, thanks for your interest in KnownHost. I'm sure we can certainly come up with something that will work well for you

    From the sounds of it, you've already got a plan in mind and it sounds like it will be plenty of resources for your site. Our VPS plans are very easy to scale and can be instantly upgraded in-place with no downtime.

    As for the domain/nameserver thing - it doesn't matter if you put them on .com/.net/ etc. In the end it will function the same no matter what tld extension it's on, and I've never heard of any downside to just putting them on .com for simplicity sake.

    As for your needs, VPS is scalable on every resource (CPU, RAM, Disk Space, Bandwidth). In fact, if you find yourself buying more than what your really needed, you can lower the specs on every resource but disk space.

    We do not recommend you setup your production websites and developer platform on the same server. Separating production from development is a better approach.

    Thanks Jonathan - I posted on your contact page (http://www.knownhost.com/contact.html). I'd read so many positives, I figured this was an exception to wait time

    Appreciate the info give. For the second question, just to clarify...I meant: Should I NOT put the account (and the nameservers) under my primary website, but under a secondary domain?

    Thanks rogriverac - that what I thought. My primary website is bleedingtree.com. Should I signup with my bleedingtree.NET and assign that account as my private nameserver, in your opinion?

    What has been considered industry's best practice is using sub-domains for the NS like this: ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com . This is with the purpose of organization, separation of functions, maintenance and redundancy. Please note that NS (nameservers) can be setup with your same primary TLD (top level domain), differentiated with sub-domains on your DNS records.
