    VPS advice

    Hi, I'm currently looking for my first VPS host.

    I've been looking around the forums and havent found a host that really sticks out so im asking you guys/girls.

    What host do you recommend?

    I have no experience but i'll research what I need to when i need to

    It would really help to know more about what your needs are (resources, memory, disk, bandwidth), what you plan to use this for, how busy the sites are, your budget etc...

    Have you looked in the offers section? See if anything catches your eyes and then search those hosts names for reviews. I'm surprised that you have not at least seen some that you like, there are a number of discussions in the first couple of pages in the VPS forum that are about some of the best VPS providers out there.

    Do you also have a preference on location? Have any types of sites to host that may limit your choices?

    And more importantly, your budget?

    Sticks out as in very popular and celebrity-like? With the way things are in this industry right now, there are a lot of lookalike offers out there but you have to keep on researching.
