I currently has a VPS with Bodhost.co.uk and it's my first ever attempt at hosting my clients websites and it's proving to be quite useful.
Firstly, I have the VPS Starter Package which has 20GB Storage, 256MB Ram, 500GB Monthly Bandwidth and I pay extra for cPanel. With cPanel, I am restricted to 8 charecters for client usernames. They do offer Plesk but I was wondering, what is the best control panel and does plesk allow for longer usernames?
Secondly, I am finding quite often that the websites hosted on the VPS won't load, and I have to restart the DNS service to get them working - this is happening more days than not. I have spoken briefly with Bodhost's VPS support team and they seem to think the server is running out of Ram and that in turn is causing this problem. Is that likely? I only have 4 websites on it at the moment (1 of which is for a client and may have 25 visits a day) and the others are my test sites which are hardly every used. In total I have about 2GB max disk space used (not sure if this makes a difference).
