    Looking for a Budget VPS

    Hello everybody

    I'm new herein this forum but i read very often in that last two years in my great adventurs to find a good hosting

    I've a got a website that in two years have grown
    Today, my website receive:
    almost 4000 unique visitors per day
    and sometimes there are peaks of 8000 visitors.

    I want to increase that numbers of course and so i need now a hosting plan that don't make my website offline when i made a rush in web marketing and do a keyword buy campaign.

    During the last two years, i was hosting in a shared hosting plan (good sharing hosters both of them iweb and arvixe) and two times in that last two months the hosting services suspend my website because i used to much ressources (more than 4 % of the shared environnement)

    So i think today my site is too big for a shared hosting.
    I read your post and see that i have two choice: VPS and Dedicated server

    I really don't know how to manage a server. I know how to use cpanel/whm or plesk but that's it.
    Also, the ads on my website come from adsense and i earn only some peanuts.
    So i'm looking for VPS or
    I didn't need a powerfull server. My website is not a youtube like and also not a gaming server. It's a free flash games sites
    I need a plan that permit to grow up and attract more visitors without ruining me

    So do i go for VPS or for dedicated server?
    I don't want for the moment (and until i don't attract more unique visitors) pay 100$ per month for a server (huge difference between that and my 6$ shared plan).
    My budget is at max: 50$ (with all included free setup, server, cpnal/plesk included, and managed service (i don't need a first time quick response time also))
    Do you have any name of reliable and serious host for managed VPS hosting cie?

    If you aren't too sure how to manage a server, you'll definately want a managed VPS. But before leaping into the VPS bandwagon, have you looked at another shared hosting provider that gives you the necessary resources? You can probably get better performance from a shared host than a VPS with the same budget.

    If I were to suggest a VPS provider, I'd go with servint or wiredtree. Both are within your $50 budget and should do the job just fine.

    Your best bet is to sign up for a VPS that comes with dedicated CPU and dedicated memory on Xen. Your budget is a bit short if you need a good quality provider especially with free cPanel and management.

    Xen is a virtualization technology that isolates a VPS better than OpenVZ.

    ok so where to find a reliable vps hoster that offer Zen VPS technology with dedicated CPU and dedicated RAM?
    Also it must be managed and setup by them because i really don't know how run a server. Only use Cpanel/plesk or WHM

    Have you visited the offers forum? Hosters aren't allowed to present their offering here in this section. Just be sure to mention that you need Xen, cPanel, dedicated CPU and dedicated RAM, and good management.

    I don't servint offers Xen. Wiredtree does but I'm not sure 512MB RAM is going to be enough for what you're trying to do.

    I take it back. I don't think Wiredtree offer Xen either.

    So how much ram i need?
    For bandwith i need almost from 400 GB to 1000 Gb
    I need CPU and Ram enough to support between 4 000 and 15 000 unique visitors per day. The high peaks during a day can reach 1500 visitors a hour during maybe 2 hours or 3.
    I used a very simple CMS based on PHP with Mysql DB, and deliver flash games playing online. No streaming, no videos, no audio.
