    I did try and post in the hosting section of the site, but I'm not a junior VIP.

    Basically, I'm not happy with my current VPS. This is my current VPS spec:

    Processors (CPU): 2 cores
    Memory: 2GB RAM
    Storage: 70 GB
    Data transfer: Unmetered
    Operating System: Windows 2008 R2 Standard
    Control Panel: None (I just log in via Remote Desktop Connection and then use Windows as you'd expect.

    I'm not sure how fast the CPUs are. Companies seem to list them as 'X cores', yet surely that totally depends on how fast each CPU is?

    Anyway, I currently use the VPS with 123-reg for Follow Liker, Long Tail Platinum and Firefox. This alone makes the VPS run sloooowwww, and I'm also noticing that it's running out of disk space, even though I have hardly any software installed on it. I pay £25 a month for this, which I don't think is worth it. I'm looking at getting a much better spec for this price.

    As I'm working with FollowLiker, the 'up time' needs to be pretty much 100% or 99.9999%. That's the only good thing about my current VPS as it doesn't even seem to go down once a year.

    Can anybody point me in the right direction, perhaps from personal experience? I know there's many VPS threads in the market place, but this just makes it all the more harder to decide which of them to go with.
