List of good VPS web hosting plans.
VPS Hosting Buying Guide
1) Buy lowest plan, upgrade as you need – Unlike shared hosting, VPS has no bad neighbor problem (bad neighbor means a big host account that uses a lot of shared resources). Most people doesn’t need a highend web server unless you already have huge traffic (which is a good thing to have :). Buy lowest plan like 1GB RAM, 30GB disk space, which is more than enough more > 99% of websites. Slowly upgrade it as you need more resources, this way you can minimize your cost and remain flexible.
2) Renew monthly – Don’t pay 1 year in advance, let it renew monthly so that you can reduce wastage, for example, if you have committed an Advance server for 1 year and later you found that you need only Beginner server then you are already over paying. RoseHosting is a monthly renewal host that I am currently using, SSD storage, low price – highly recommended.
3) Off-site backup – This chargeable additional service is usually an add-on service provided by your webhost or third party service. Basically its allow you to backup your data files to “other server” or media. The process can be automated or manual, it is very essential for any web business to have a good backup system.
4) Responsive & reliable support – Most people (including webmaster) doesn’t know how to manage a linux/web server box. It’s ok, let the expert to do it, the tech support handles hundreds of tickets daily and many routine jobs can be done with just a few keystroke. Don’t waste your valuable time solving server problem, let them handle it (may be chargeable).
