    In Need of a VPS

    Hello everybody,

    I'm urgently in need of a VPS hosting solution for one of my websites.

    My requirements are :
    Disk Space : not much, 1 GB is enough for me.
    Bandwidth : 250GB
    I'm not sure about the RAM and processor requirements.
    Control panel : cPanel is best. If its not possible, DirectAdmin atleast.
    My budget : $10-$12 per month

    Anyone has any suggestions ?

    Thanks,
    Shrihari.S

    I'm not sure if you'd be able to get a cPanel-licensed VPS for $10/month. The licensing is what's going to get you on that.

    So price aside, I'll throw out some of the best providers that I think you'll be very happy with:

    VPS.net - Scalable so you can add RAM/CPU percentage/disk space/bandwidth to your VPS on the fly, and you can even throttle it back if you only need power for a short period of time. They've also got quite a selection of pre-built Linux images. I personally use them for two Debian-based VPSs that power my website and blog. The service is incredible. $20/month gets you one "node" of performance.

    Joe's Datacenter - Probably closer to what you need if not exceeding it. The base model gives you 30GB storage and 700GB transfer, and free DirectAdmin. Joe is probably your best bet at $19/month.

    Hope you find what you're looking for!

    A cPanel license alone is generally $15. For those specifications with around 128mb ram, expect to pay about $20-25 per month from most providers.

    To find a more accurate price, you'll need to specify the amount of ram required. Do you have a rough idea? 128mb? 256mb?

    If you could do without cPanel you could surely find good offers within your budget.

    Personally I dont know what you have to do with this server but if it's just hosting a site you really dont need cPanel, webmin could do just fine (and it's free).

    I would go for direct admin, its only $5-6p/m and you should be able to get a VPS that fills the other requirements for about $7-12.
    Over your budget but I think the closest your going to get.

    For 1GB of diskspace and 250 bw you should definitely be able to find something in that price range, but like everyone has said will be impossible with a control panel.

    Since you don't really have any RAM or CPU requirements you might want to look at a shared solution as that would be in your price range and probably have a control panel you could use.

    Perhaps they want a VPS for more freedom then what a shared web hosting server can provide them. I know some people who have had a VPS and shared hosting and say they will never go back to shared hosting regardless.

    With only $10.00 to $12.00 'per' month for a VPS is rather cheap and I don't think you will be able to find one for that. Best of luck!

    I would suggest you try a reseller plan but if you need the VPS you would also need to raise the budget
    If you're the smartest person in the room then you're in the wrong room
