Hi there all, I am in need for new hosting, and this time I am looking for VPS hosting which is low end. However I would like cpanl and whm as well. I only need about 2-5 gb space and about 50gb bandwith with 32mb ram. Anyone have suggestions, I dont mind where it is.
I would honestly look for at least 128mb if not 256 mb of ram if you want cpanel Im not sure it runs with less then 128. I know servint who I would normally reccomend dont offer anything under 50 bucks a month unless somethings changed recently, perhaps powervps do as they seem to have a good rep here.
There are so many posts in the forum trying to promote several companies which makes me laugh.
However, here is my experience:
If your traffic comes from Europe only or at least the 80% of them, then definitely go for a European VPS or a dedicated box in USA/Canada. Iweb.ca is a great company (for unmanged solutions)
I own 3 large sites and I have a dedicated server in Canada, a VPS with ServInt and one more with Eurovps. The speed from the Eurovps VPS is better even from the dedicated box (a little bit).
There is NO best provider. Insteed, there is a BEST combination of choices.
Buy a vps from servint for a month, buy another one from eurovps.
Compare both, and you will be with Eurovps. Traceroute from England is 14ms for Eurovps and 107 for Servint.
Both are good companies. Obviously ServInt is bigger but that doesn't mean better (it's like the size, some times it matters and sometimes not .
My suggestion is:
If you know how to manage the vps and looking for good speed in Europe then go with Eurovps.
If you are looking to get a responce in a ticket in less than an hour (usually with a solution, not always) then go with ServInt.
I have been with many host in many years now, but I have never seen such good customer support and dedication from the owners and from the staff that EuroVPS have!
Their uptimes are exceptionally good. The prices' are very low IMHO, but their support is still awesome!
When I had email problems with other host and they couldn't reach me, THEY CALLED ME! With the price I am paying, I really couldn't believe it, but they did it anyway and sorted my question/problems at the phone. Call them at any time and they will answer! They do really do it for the customer. IMHO they really do the customer's best.
I don't know what else to say to make you to believe that EuroVPS is the best choice you can do. I have never recommended other hosts to anyone, but EuroVPS is so good that I do an exception.
I sincerely do recommend EuroVPS for all of you! Give it a try, you won't regret it.

I've been with a couple of the established players and I have to say, they're good at some things, but not everything - but for my needs, they fell down on service. As I'm in the UK, ping times weren't that great either.
I read a couple of comments about EuroVPS, ended up speaking to boss Vasili and have gone from there. I'm currently transferring my sites over to him.
So far, I've been very pleased and service has been what I expect, as opposed to what I have to put up with. My ping times are now over 4 times quicker than my last provider on the east coast of the US. My system is a lot better on paper for a similar price and more responsive to boot! Obviously, it's early days.
I keep you posted if anything good or bad happens!
The fact that Vasili has called me everytime he wanted to clear something up has been a surprise from day one. A good one too. He want to make sure everything is sorted out quickly and without fuss. I've no idea when he sleeps, but I thought I was good!!
If EuroVPS is willing to do a trial for any skeptics then you have nothing to lose. I was with one of the most popular providers mentioned on these forums. They were good, but the service was less than I needed. I'm no expert in these matters. I'm a new media consultant, not a network expert. With EVPS, what I need is there.
Anyway, I don't get paid to write good remarks , so I'll leave it there. Try it out.
