    I am looking to change my offshore host and was looking at a few different solutions.

    I have 2 Movie sites.

    If I buy a VPS, can I host multiple sites on it?

    What is the advantage of a VPS over normal hosting or dedicated or semi dedicated hosting?

    I could also get a Semi dedicated or fully dedicated server package, which one should I go for?

    Do the all plans allow multiple sites to be hosted on that one account i.e WHM pannel installed?

    My sites will hopefully be getting around 10k UV per day, what plan would be best.

    Im getting the hosting from these guys - http://www.warez-host.com/

    (Im not advertising)

    What plan should I go for.



    Cheers

    Check their ToS, but usually with a VPS or dedi, you can host unlimited sites.
    The advantage of a VPS over a normal host is that you have control over the server and all the sites on it, and depending on where it is, you can add/remove functions.

    VPS should be sufficient for your site.

    Get as much RAM as possible (at least 2GB) especially if you are expecting spikes in traffic. Make sure you know what you are doing when setting up the server to the right settings (apache etc) to ensure it will actually be able to handle the traffic.

    Ok, well I have no past experience in using a VPS, so im just going to go with this plan

    http://www.warez-host.com/semi-dedic.php

    The one at $18/month

    What do you guys think.

    I am just going to be hosting 2 or 3 sites on it.

    If you are expecting 10k UV's a day you're probably going to want something a bit more powerful than that - especially if you are running it on WP.

    I'd look for at least VPS-NL 3 and pay someone who knows what they are doing to set it up properly for you. You'd need to setup the semi-dedicated to your settings too.

    You should pay your server fee + whatever you pay someone to set it up within a day of earnings so make sure you choose the right plan.

    Ok, changed my mind again, so i am going for the VPS-NL 4 plan.

    Who wants to set it up for me?
