Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

As with all business, the primary focus is to spend as little as possible, yet get as much as possible for the money spent. VPS or virtual private servers save money from the beginning. Cheap VPS is a web hosting environment that gives the client some of the same features as dedicated servers which are a pretty expensive proposition. Cheap VPS makes use of a partition within a dedicated server. The partition functions on its own, with its own operating system and applications. It gives the client who owns the partition more stability and control, and by its very nature costs less than owner the whole dedicated server. Cheap VPS is regarded as a stepping stone for businesses who are growing to the point where one day they will need a dedicated server to meet their needs.

Do some research into Cheap VPS hosting before signing a contract. Many web hosting companies offer similar services. However they may charge different prices because there is no standard pricing within the web hosting industry. So to get the best deal, you will need to comparison shop. Some optimal features for your business might include, quad core nodes, full root/administrator access, round the clock monitoring, all software, security  and hardware installed updated and configured. Be sure you know the amount of disk space you will need, buying a cheap VPS plan with not enough space is a waste of time and money. In this case, buying more than you need is better as your company and business continue to grow.

Look at web hosting which offers free set for your cheap VPS. Some hosts charge through the roof for set up so look around. Also ask about multiple cheap domain hosting plans. Some companies offer unlimited options while others will limit this option to minimal making it impossible for you to function. Having a dedicated IP address is very important for your business. Be aware that some web host who offer cheap VPS don’t include dedicated IP addresses and will want to charge you extra. If this happens, move on. Finally choose the company that offers you the most flexibility, the most stability and the most control over your operation, at the minimum amount of money. However do not trade off on quality because the price is too good to pass up. It is, because in the end too cheap VPS can harm your bottom line.
