I am looking for a VPS solution with one caveat, no adult content allowed. I tried the request feature, but got only got one response from someone who doesn't actually offer a vps. I will be putting mutiple domains on this, but I want to have full root. I do not however have enough domains I need for this account to justify a full dedicated server.
As I've mentioned before, I think that the control panel interface that most providers (including 15minuteservers) is adequate even for beginning users. They normally let you perform most maintenance tasks by holding your hand through it. That includes adding/modifying domains.
No reputable server place will give you a server that isn't secure. Every provider I've ever used has given the server to me in an extremely secure state. That is, they take the means to patch up software and plug up common security holes.
Originally posted by Jhorra Hmm, maybe I'll look into something like that then. What other companies would offer an entry level server like that?
Most do. And, on high end servers, too -- not just entry level. Control Panels are standard. Even experienced admins and hosters prefer the control panel interface to the "old school" method -- believe me. It's something advanced users and novice users can both find use from.
www.ev1servers.net also has different control panel interfaces depending on the package you select. Everything they offer is top notch.
I wouldn't recommend buying a server without control panels of some sort. You will at least want to be able to add/modify domains and perform simple maintance (reboots, adding users, etc). In other words, make sure your money is buying you more than a box with an operating system.
If you're new to adding multiple domains to a single server, you won't want to mess with DNS and editing httpd.conf, so a control panel is the way to go. (Don't pay extra for a control panel unless it's a nominal fee. There are people out there who won't charge you for this.)
Well I have been using a VPS, so I know the control panel and I'm learning the command line interface. I just found out my provider allows adult content though, and that's something that I really want to stay away from. I'm also aware that at some point I'm going through someone who does, so I am satisfied with going one level up. As long as my money is going directly to someone who offers it I'm happy. I seriously doubt I could have none of it indirectly going to someone.
I use a ServInt VPS and can highly reccomend how much they help you manage your VPS, as well as a great network. They always have answer my questions within minutes, give thorough answers, and my servers have been online 100% of the time reported by Alertra for the last 2 months.
To my knowledge they do not support Adult Content on their VPS products. I know if you emailed their sales team right now you'd get a response in less than a few minutes. [email protected]
I hope it works out for you! Their base packaged, the "essential VPS" gives generous space, bandwidth, four ip addresses, an awesome network and is backed by a great support team! Sounds like the package you need. I believe I'm up to 42 domain names on this package and I'm still running only a consistent 180-200MB of memory usage when my
