Hi, I am new to the forum. I know about SEO. ... that it exists. I am starting "my journey" with setting up a basic VPS. I looked at Marketplace/Hosting part of the forum and skimmed through few posts about "the most amazing VPS servers, without paying the equivalent market price for the service in need." In the marketplace, there are so many amazing options to choose from and I will be honest. I will never be able to decide, nor am I willing to spend days of comparing them. And I decided. There is a thread in Black Hat Tools part about best SEO tools where Mr Vlad gives a nice tip about the hosting provider he is using. Which is within the price range I can afford to pay. I believe it's a great tip from the person within the industry already making a living out of search engine optimization. Mr Vlad could become their affiliate and earn some money for this great tip as I believe I will not be the only one attracted by this hosting provider. Or maybe I should do that and start accumulating multiple zeros! Back on point. I wanted to sign up for 12months at first. However, after choosing the option on the payment screen I was smacked with the VAT on top, which I didn't consider in the first place. Thus, I decided to sign for 3 months and see how it goes. The hardware configuration of my choice was as follows: M Plan [3.99EUR/mth] CPU: 2 x 2.40 GHz Intel® Xeon® E5-2640 v4 RAM: 2048 MB DDR4-2400 ECC REG HDD: 80 GB RAID, 200 IOPS Bandwidth: 4 TB 200 Mbps Port Speed Backups: Daily, Weekly I paid 14.36EUR for 3 months with PayPal which cost me about 13GBP. When I logged in from the Dashboard I went under My Services/VPS/ Clicked blue Manage button the right-hand side. On the next screen select install OS I was good with Slackware back in the day and from the list provided I would be more inclined to go with Debian or Fedora core, maybe next time. Let's try VestaCP as advised by Mr.Vlad. Have no idea whether this is the best to suit my needs but I will give this a try and if needed I can always change it later. My basic needs are: eating, sleeping & f... food? Ups. I meant: 1. Hosting 2-3 websites, 2. Hosting SuiteCRM 3. Running Instagram bot in python. Remember to tick yes & click Continue as shown below. The installation will take approx 5 mins. After its done, I will be adding LAMP + recommended RoundCube. Don't know what RoundCube does. Will find out soon. PS. I have been wondering some time ago why there is a black scheme on this forum. I woke up today at 4, looked at the screen and understood! Well done guys. Now I gotta go. Will continue the rest another time.
