    The current setup for our VPS is as below:

    - a Guaranteed 1GB RAM
    - Dedicated 36GB 15K RPM harddisk

    Hope that the New VPS put a maximum of 18-20 VPS per Server

    What exactly do you mean by "reputation VPS"? Are you just looking for a host with a good reputation, or is this some new buzzword I haven't picked up on yet?

    I've been with Steadcom for a few months now and their management / support is spectacular. I'm holding off my full review until I've been on board for at least six months (just to keep eclouds on his toes ) but if you search this forum for their name, you'll see some good, consistent reviews. They really make a point of being both fast and thorough in their support. I don't know how many clients share a single box, but my VPS has always been peppy and responsive.

    I think their Enterprise B plan would fit your requirements and budget. Check the "vps hosting offers" forum to see if they're running any promos right now.

    Ive been using Zone.net for almost half a year now and their network and servers are nice and fast as well as their management being excellent. I would highly recommend them.

    I would be very careful about trying to compare VPS's based on the above details; it is generally meaningless to consider the power of the underlying hardware when you're purchasing a VPS - although obviously it's an important factor in how your VPS behaves, a more powerful (physical) server does NOT necessarily mean that you get a more powerful VPS.

    Hardware nodes (physical servers) with a better hardware spec. just mean that more VPS's can run on it without causing problems - there's more "power" to share around. However, you may find that you're much better off on a lower spec. machine where you get a bigger share of it

    The other important issue here is that number of VPS's on a hardware node really doesn't help you. You could be sharing your node with just one other VPS, but if it's using all the resources (and configured to be allowed to do that) you won't get much from it.

    Of course, most hosting providers are also unlikely to tell you how many VPS's they have on a node - the ones that know what they're doing will explain that it's irrelevant to you (due to the reasons above) whilst others will probably lie in order to attract your sale!

    As for the 100Mbps port speed - this is shared, and again it may not be properly controlled - so you cannot consider how much of that 100Mbps you would get access to (even putting aside any capacity issues of the various networks involved etc.).

    Greetings FengYun

    I think your budget is about right for a 1GB RAM VPS.

    Have you looked in the offers section?
    http://www.webhostingtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=104

    It sounds like you are from an Asian Country, are your website visitors also from Asia? If yes, you may want to get a VPS in the USA West Coast or Asia/Europe as they are closer. You will get a little better speed because of the very far distance.

    I agree that you should find a quality VPS provider who has servers on the west coast USA.

    Does JaguarPC have servers on the west coast? I thought they only had a presence in Texas and Georgia?

    I would suggest researching UbiquityHosting.com and Zone.net which have servers in Los Angeles, CA.

    After looking through i found these hosting
    jaguarpc, Liquid Web, Knownhost, Layeredtech, Steadcom
    Zone.net, UbiquityHosting, PlanetHoster, FastNext
    anymore advice will be great

    I'm also considering getting VPS with LiquidWeb. For what it's worth, their 'Heroic Support' really catches my attention (maybe I'm just being sucked in to their marketing scheme). Could anyone here share their experience with LiquidWeb?

    The reviews I found so far on WHT seem to be generally positive.

    FengYun,

    I have a VPS with KnownHost in its California data center and am very pleased. You can find out about their data center @ http://www.knownhost.com/company/network.html

    That would make it on the west coast (one of the nearest US locations to Asia)

    I hope this helps.

    I don't believe Layeredtech offers management for their VPS services. I'd avoid LT anyhow, I'm not a big fan of them these days. I have been extremely impressed by the quality of support Knownhost offers, they have a special going in the vps section.

    I have both zone and Solarvps accounts and would recommend both. Solar tends to be faster with ticket response times, but my zone VPS is far, far faster. I have had no major downtime with either provider.

    My main site (I don't resell sites) is a vBulletin forum on Zone, and I have no plans to change that any time soon.

    Something I should add. I am currently on a SolarVPS server with Dual - Dual Core AMD Opteron processors. They now have dual - quad core xeons, which likely would make a big difference in benchmark performance.

    I will second SolarVPS..
    I've been with them for 10 months now and have never have reason to complain.
    It is true that I am under utilising the VPS by not even using 20% of the resources available but I don't believe in leaving a lot of room in my servers.
    Support has been great on the few times I've required it.
    Price wise, I'd say they can more than accomodate you.
    I have a UK VPS with them because that's were I and my audience are but the speed is great even from the US.
