    I have 5 websites hosted on godaddy and it is time to move on to VPS, but I have never done it and have some noob questions:

    can I get VPS hosting for all my existing domains + domains I will create for $4/month, or is it a price per 1 domain?
    Can anyone recommend a VPS provider who will assist me to transfer my domains (I know I will screw something up)?

    You can host as many domains you want, it all depends on your VPS. I host a 4 sites on one 2gb vps with total daily 3-6K visitors with no problem.

    You need to edit your php.ini 'post-max-size' and 'upload_max_filesize' and might want to increase PHP max execution time so phpmyadmin won't give you time out error.

    If you have WHM/cPanel then you can do this from WHM too.

    I have neglected this tutorial, I am apologizing for that. I will update it soon to add a better file manager that is with the same capabilities as CPanel file manager.



    I know you already fixed the problem.

    There are sites that are pushing promotions and you can easily find a non windows vps for $40/y, just google it you will find them, but don't forget to read the reviews.

    We fixed that problem on my twitter journey :D

    OK just ask it here, I will probably modify it to add a better file manager, way better.

    Not a bad idea :D

    They are cheap, I have use them long time before, I had problems shutting down my VPS constantly. I heard they are better now and the cloud vps they are having are running perfectly and also the have free DDoS protection for the cloud VPS as I remember which s a big plus.

    yes they have a free DDOS protection in all vps cloud packages

    but they don t have dedicated US ip + no mention about SEO software if allowed or not...and they support is terrible

    This is a very detailed and helpful guide for people like me- the newbies. The video is very helpful as well. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to learn.
