    First off, I tried searching but VPS is too short to work, it just comes up 0 matches found.

    I'm looking to change my hosting from shared on hostgator, mediatemple and cirtexhosting to a VPS, but i'm looking to pay around 30-35/month with Cpanel... I would go hostgator but adding cpanel to their cheapest VPS hosting solution is 49.99 otherwise its 39.99 for VZ(which I know nothing about)

    I might be able to swing $40/month for cpanel if someone knows of a host that has it for that price, but $50 is too much for me at the moment.

    It's an A+ company and their service is just second to none.
    My second choice is knownhost.

    Not to knock a service that you obviously support.

    But as someone with no ulterior motive (nor owning a hosting company) & a degree in networking technologies....

    I usually check a hosts main site, to check the stability of their network. No doubt a hosts main server is going to be usually their most stable & reliable.

    Well here's the results i got from multiple locations all over the globe.....

    From: Greece, Athens (hosting facility)

    64 bytes from 78.46.249.243: icmp_seq=4 ttl=57 time=307 ms

    From Comcast.net ultra-high speed service (mid-west)

    64 octets from 78.46.249.243: icmp_seq=3 ttl=58 time=1285.2 ms

    That's about the most "all over the place" ping times I've seen before from a site (even under a DDOS situation)

    I would say their network stability based on their main site is questionable at the moment at best. IMO

    Here is an example of a normal ping (to one of my friends sites)

    I use linode.com for most stuff. They have five datacenters (four in the US, one in the UK).

    They provide scripts for setting up common server configurations, but I'm not sure if that includes CPanel/Webmin type stuff. I've written scripts that fetch/compile all my software automatically.

    vpsland are cheap, they have a windows server 2003 box (512mb ram, 15GB Storage) for $18/month. Im undecided about their reliability, i used them for a few months and had some problems but other people have said their great, check them out.

    i can hook you up with marcus at lvpshosting.com . The only thing that doesn't match your requerement is that they are not offering cpanel but they are offering DirectAdmin.
    And their prices start from $18.95 with flexible terms for upgrade/downgrade or customization.
    check them http://lvpshosting.com/vpshosting.html

    This is an excellent way to test a potential host. How are you able to do this? I would like to be able to compare hosts?

    I know how to test the speed of my ISP; but how do you test a host? I have been searching for good hosting from the Philippines. With most hosting providers you never know what backbone connection they have to the internet.

    Please share?

    I am hosting 24 sites on 3 shared providers paying @$300 in total.
    Total disk usage is 27GB and avg monthly bandwidth is 1.6GB

    I doubt I can get a good deal from any vps based on my above stats.
