    I recently purchased DAMN vps AKA Thrust VPS and I wanted to know if it was possible to host a site on my VPS?

    If yes, how do I go about it? :)

    On my VPS servers
    Compared to getting shared hosting which is all automatic etc. it's a real fuss to set up hosting on a VPS. But if your skills are decent you can do it with no problems. If you've got a windows VPS you can use IIS and if you need to use php based site you need to install php also. You can also use Apache for windows which is a lot better and has htaccess functionality, while IIS doesn't. If you just do a quick search on Bing regarding Apache and how to install it you will get loads of stuff, it's how I did it.

    Also make sure your domain registrar has nameserver functionality too, because it would be annoying if you had to set up your own DNS server too.

    Why don't you simply get a Web host that offers cPanel and Fantastico? cPanel is simply the management GUI for your hosting account. Fantastico is a software.

    Hostgator is a popular and inexpensive hosting provider offering these services. Google it some if need be.

    Typically VPS are used when running software for scrapping or other tasks. For instance, you might run Scrapebox on your VPS.

    Hope this helps.
