A Few Things to Consider Before Purchasing Cheap VPS Hosting

Website Promotion

Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting comes out as a flexible and scalable solution for those who might have tried shared hosting earlier on, but now feel they have outgrown what their shared plan had to offer. It comes as an inexpensive web hosting solution to those who are not yet ready to move on to the dedicated hosting server. With so many VPS hosting plans out there, it could be a bit overwhelming to choose the right one. However, there are a few things you should consider before purchasing any cheap VPS hosting plan.

When looking at different plans; compare what uptime the hosting company is offering you. Anything below 99.95% is not acceptable. You should go for the one with highest uptime and virtually zero downtime. After this comes the price; which is based upon whether the account is managed or unmanaged. A managed account is monitored 24 hours a day by experienced system administrators, but this naturally comes with a higher price tag. With the competition increasing most of the VPS host companies offer money back guarantee and no set up fee. Look for both when choosing a plan. Most of the VPS providers don’t provide any management tools, and you have root access to your account. If you are inexperienced in the field it is better to first equip yourself with management tools, which might be of use in administration of your site. If you have an online business of some sort make sure the host provides secure transaction option. The availability of a secured socket layer (SSL) ensures safe money transactions and credit card payments along with the customer’s confidence in your products.

Once you have seen all this see what sort of customer support the host provides. You should consider one which provides twenty four hour support and through multiple channels. Some of the VPS providers have off shore help and this could be a downside, at times. Only if a provider can get your site up again in a matter of minutes can you expect unlimited web hosting from them. You should try calling the toll free number of a host company before making your big purchase; it would give you an idea about their response time and service quality. Consider carefully what the VPS plan offers, this includes computation power, hard disk space and bandwidth. You should also see what sort of hardware the company is using, anything below 512 MB may affect loading time and traffic management of your site. Steer away from companies which don’t state these things clearly. It is ok to go for a basic plan, as most of the companies offer reasonable upgrades.

Then depending upon you knowledge of computers and off course, your pocket you should choose between a managed or an unmanaged account. Unmanaged accounts mean cheap web hosting, but it also means that your tech support would only be responsible for handling minor issues. So if you can manage your account on your own there is nothing like it. Lastly, read the customer reviews.

Most of the companies nowadays have forums on their websites; you can get a good idea from there about the company’s performance and reliability with domain name hosting or reseller web hosting and cheap linux hosting.
