    I'm not happy enough with my current VPS. This is the 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.

    For this I'm paying £25 a month.

    I currently use the VPS 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. That may be something to do with the swap file / virtual memory.
    I feel I should be getting a better spec for the £25 a month I'm paying.

    As I'm working with FollowLiker, the 'up time' needs to be pretty much 100%. 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.

    I guess I need at least 3GB Ram, although I expect even that may not be enough to run Follow Liker properly, as it seems to eat memory. I also run things in Firefox (such as Keyword Shitter), so can sometimes have a few tabs open too.

    Thanks!

    How about this configuration- RAM 4 GB, SSD hard disk 40 GB , 4 TB bandwidth, 1 ip , 4 core CPU , cost will be 30 USD per month.

    The only problem with that is for whatever reason, I have very little HD space now even with a 70GB. It must be down to Window's swap file / virtual memory as when I go to uninstalling programs, there's hardly anything in there.

    So it depends on whether the 40GB would be enough to run Windows and the VPS properly.
