    VPS Wanted [Min: 512MB/25GB/100GB Bandwidth]

    Hey Everyone,

    Basically, i'm looking for an unmanaged VPS with the following (minimum) Specs:

    • 512MB RAM (no need for Burst RAM, but if provided that's fine)
    • 25 GB Storage
    • 100GB Bandwidth
    • CentOS 5.x (x86_64)
    • 99.5% SLA

    Basically, I'm looking for something to replace my shared host - I have Linux server-admin experience, and so am not looking for a managed VPS.
    I simply want to setup LAMP, a mailserver, SpamAssasin, and possibly a few other things.

    I'm not too bothered about if it comes with a control panel or not, but I'm certainly not looking for cPanel or anything like that.
    I have used DirectAdmin in the past and liked it, and am curious to try out SolusVM - however. If this is going to bump up the price too much, then I'm fine without a control panel - I do however need the ability to stop/start/reboot the server.

    Ideally, i'd like to spend no more than $20/month and it to be based in the EU or UK (as I am based in the UK)

    Many Thanks,
    Ben Thomas

    No, your price is not unrealistic. I'm sure that you will find a good VPS host for $20. As for the UK based VPS I will suggest you -> http://www.rapidswitch.com/VirtualServers.aspx

    Thank you for the responses (both here, and via PM).

    I've now gone ahead and purchased a one month plan (DSN Lite) with directspace.net after chatting with their support about a few things (including making sure that they now actually have equal-share CPU usage) - even though it's based in the US rather than the UK. Will see how it goes, if things don't work out as planned I will most definitely be looking at the other services recommended.

    Many Thanks,
    Ben Thomas

    There's no much need to go x64 on a 512mb VPS and I don't know too many providers that actually have x64 images so if you drop that I think it will be a lot easier to find what you're looking for

    In his original post if you read it he says that he wouldn't want to go higher than $20

    You make it seem like more RAM is the only benefit to 64-bit. There are many benefits to 64-bit, we usually see about a 30% gain in CPU performance as well.

    And, I don't know any providers that don't have 64-bit images so what providers don't?

    @ OP Glad to see you found a host, interesting to see you choose DSN as Portland is very far from the UK but if your happy that's good. Do you have good speeds to their DC?
