    Hello,

    I would like to buy a VPS and start on it my own business. Basically i would like to put a few websites on it, i am thinking on putting on it at least 5 websites. I have been searching and i see that most of the VPS do not come with hostage enabled. I am not a total noob when it comes to command lines but i need them so i can use them.

    What would i need to do so i can install on that VPS a few wordpress sites with differente domains? The IPs i see on the VPS plans are refering to the domains i can add?

    thanks in advance

    Just go for a fully managed VPS and cpanel and everything will be very easy to set up

    That is a good advice, but i am looking to spend a bit less. I really want some more information about how it will work and what i have to do to be able to host my websites.

    Well, i am thinking of buying a cheap VPS for now, i have found some cheap ones for 10$ and since the sites will be new they won't need a good vps at the begining.

    Actually i was talking with their online support on the website and it was them that told me that if i don't have experience managing a VPS i should buy a shared hosting.

    Hire someone from fiverr to set up a control panel for you. There is a guy who set up one for me, just search for magento server on fiverr, he installs a great stack with nginx, mariadb, varnish etc, you can select ispconfig which is a very good panel.

    I bought a VPS then a cpanel licence and set up my own hosting environment that way, it's very good but an expensive way of doing it.

    if you want to do it cheaper you could set up LAMP ( Apache, MySQL and php environment) which wouldn't cost anything . I beleive there are also free guides that would help you get it running fairly similar to a standard cpanel setup.

    but as said above, it may be better to go with a managed setup, and to be honest, if you are on a budget, it's probably not the best path - you would be better to buy standard shared hosting from hostgator or similar.

    Install zPanel on the VPS(many instructions on the web), it's like cPanel, but it's free also easy to use, wordpress setup basically the same as with cPanel

    I do have another question. Would a small VPS with 512 Ram and 3.6CPU be enough to host let's say up to 5 websites that get around 100 UV/day using wordpress?

    Is your site getting a lot of view daily and are you using a heavy script ?

    Yes, that should be more than enough to host a handful of websites, but keep in mind Wordpress is not exactly light, it can be very resource intensive depending on the modules & theme you have installed.

    Don't be too surprised if you need to upgrade to 768MB or 1GB in the nearer future.

    This is only going to be true if the provider is using OpenVZ as its not exactly true virtualization.

    If your host uses something like KVM, XEN or Hyper-V 256MB will likely be not enough to even boot the operating system let alone host a website.
