    I'm running 3 sites right now. And I do not know how to config my VPS to make it work properly. There are multiple errors. Should I continue using that VPS which costs me 10$/MONTH or transfer my sites to HawkHost or any shared hosting provider. They provide LiteSpeed shared host and CPanel which is user-friendly interface. With the coupon and affiliate program, the cost is not too expensive, 5$/Month. What should I use?

    If you're having issues with setting up a VPS i think you should just go for shared hosting. Your time is valuable too!
    Setting up a VPS, keeping it up to date, optimizing it, fixing it when something breaks can take a lot of time.

    On the topic of VPS providers, Digitalocean, Linode and Vultr are pretty good.

    Yes, but I know that the VPS can handle more traffic and visitors (at the same price) ):

    Nope VPS can handle more traffic visitors (at way less price ) you can even find VPS offers down to 4$/year , but it some skills to deal with it , If you cant manage VPS your self just use shared instead

    their is even cheaper to $2/year :) but you'll have to do a lot of work since it's just empty server with OS only and no support

    hosting business runs by crazy man :) called " Gullo's Hosting " , but honest it will take from you months to learn how to deal with linux servers , anyway Digital Oceans tutorials could help you .
    you don't need for any control panels at all if you need help to get starting I'll send you couple tutorials that helped me to run multiple servers more then two years .

    I used MariaDB instead. I'm tired of working with command. That's why I usually install a control panel to help me with basic functions and deal with command such as VestaCP, CentOs WebPanel, etc...

    I have strategy to deal with this boring command , I write them all on text file , i wrote every steps I don on the command line , so I don't need to search for them again . I can write it to your ,
    First step after updating the system etc .
    is to install Nginx and edit nginx.conf file to add your domain to it (other uses /sites-available ) folder but i don't care I use single file to add all my domains to it , their is nginx top block (you only need to change nginx user name to www-data) and under it http block (which mean the whole http protocol connection ) you may need to add some stuff under it , and the comes server block {} that one you need to add your self (just copy the server example block ) and editit basic staff (like domain name and php-fpm setting ) ,
    and you don;t need fro DNS server you can uses your register and it default NS just add custom A name point it to your server IP address . restart your nginx server and you'll see your server running .
    next install php-fpm 'i recommend latest version ~7.3' with all it extension specially php7.3-sqlite3 start it ,
    you can access to server files using sftp using WinSCP- (if you didn't want to install ftp server) to navigate and upload files , but you'll have to re change file ownership back to the server user 'www-data' example here or use ftp serer like vsftpd "just beware of permissions and security "
    that' it your server will runs fine and fast with way less resources an memory and you didn't have to deal with these bloated panels softwares .

    Hi,
    You want something easy ? try webuzo. I love this panel, it's very friendly, and cheap (even free). It's the same team that did softaculous, so it's a strong team
