    Hey all!

    I need your help...

    I have recently bought four domains, two of which are going to be adult related sites (1 blog, 1 tube) hosted on a VPS and the other two are authority sites, hosted on a separate hosting acct.

    My question is:

    Do you think this VPS package is suitable for my adult sites?

    I LEFT OUT THE NAME OF THE COMPANY BECAUSE I'M NOT PROMOTING ANYTHING!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    64-bit operating system

    CPU 3 vCores
    RAM 4 GB
    Hard drive 50 GB Raid 10
    Bandwidth 100 Mbps Guaranteed up to 10,000 GB data transferred per month, then 1 Mbps
    IP 1 IPv4 and 1 IPv6 included
    Full root access
    Anti-DDoS

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm just starting out, but can upgrade at anytime if necessary. I'm just curious to know if this package would be suitable to start


    I'm totally stuck with this, and I would appreciate any help or advice anyone may have...

    Thanks in advance!!

    If you're just starting out and have little to no traffic, a VPS is overkill.

    ^ exactly, you can always shift to a vps later, and use shared hosting, or if you really think your traffic is going to get big fast (based on your experience, not your wishes) then use a cloud server that lets you scale up

    Thanks for the reply. Ive read dozens of IM journeys where they purchase VPS and proxies etc as a part of their process to remain anonymous posting links on twitter, fb, Instagram with PVA accounts. So I guess I decided to incorporate it in, not realizing it may be too much.

    Now I'm really glad that I waited to get advice from you guys here. I really didn't want to go overboard, so I just purchased my domains first earlier today and then posted here to find out which route I should go.

    Thanks a bunch.

    I truly appreciate it!

    Actually, i believe that what you read multiple times is about Windows VPS which are widely used on BHW to run some SEO tools.
    It is rare and heavily not recommanded to host websites on the VPS along with the SEO tools running on the same VPS.

    There are also Linux VPS which are generally meant to host websites but as mentionned by KraftyKyle, it is generally required once you have reached a certain amount of traffic.
