      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

  1. How to Increase VPS hosting Business?

    This is exactly how you can promote on several other forums :)
  2. ONAPP & SOLUS Alternative! Preview :)

    Looks very interesting. Pricing would really play a major role.
  3. Host your own DNS or use a DNS specialist company?

    That depends on what you are trying to do and what you are trying to achieve. Your DNS: Complete control over your DNS, you can make your changes, have multiple failover setups and won't cost you additional to set up a private DNS Using Premium DNS: Depends on which one you are choosing but can take of things like DDoS protection, Anycast DNS, CDN, etc. all integrated, so you go through less hassle. It depends on what you are trying to achieve and based on that you can make a decision.
  4. Welcome To The GoPBN Private Blog Network Hosting Application *Note* - It's important for you to have Skype for the beta test. If you are excited to test out then kindly leave a comment in the thread or shoot me a PM.

  5. updating VPS host frequency

    It purely comes down to your customers and requirements. But it's recommended to run your patches very often, especially the security updates because if you won't update security patches then you are basically risking every single customer on that node.
  6. How do you do staff?

    Hosting or any other business requires some serious time, effort and dedication if you want to succeed. I still remember not taking any paycheck for the initial 2 years and lived off myself with the savings I had or took some side designing/development projects initially to take care of my family. Even today when we have to do heavy investments on servers in a particular month, I skip on my paycheck and invest that into the business. With regards to staff, you have to be extremely careful with whom you are tieing up because you will be working and seeing those people every single day. You have founded the company but your staffs would run your company, so you need to be cautious in terms of how you plan out everything. If you cannot physically run this business then do not expect your staffs to run it for you. They see you as the leader and will work exactly the way you will be working in the organization.
  7. Started with about $200 budget initially about 7 years ago, survived and grew massively. In the end, its all about your marketing strategy and your willingness to grow your business.

  9. Initially, I would go smart, instead of investing in any hardware or dedicated server, I will try to cut down deals with existing hosting companies and get some pricing on the table. Next, I will build my website, set up a billing system. Cost to build a website: None (For Me) for others, you might end up investing around $500-1,500 Cost of billing system; WHMCS: $15/month Now that leaves you a very healthy budget for marketing/support that is approximately around $935 - $8500 on the table. (I will consider $1500 as the max) Depending upon your technical skills, if you are good with technicals, you can save on the ticket/staff/support but if you are not very technical then I would work with few Indian Support Companies and work out on Cost Per Ticket basis initially where I would negotiate the pricing per ticket resolution to around $1-10/ticket depending upon the difficulty. I will make sure to pay a special premium so that I can brag about the response time and add that into my marketing asset. Since the support is on per use basis, that leaves me with the same amount of money on the table that I would invest into marketing. I would hire couple of VA from one of the freelancing website for $200-300/m and I will train them for about a month. Now, I am left with $600 less on the 2x VA and $15 less on WHMCS. Money left: $7900 I will invest that $7900 into ads on various forums to drive in some quick traffic and setup on marketing campaigns, again, this depends upon how technical you are and if you are aware of how digital marketing works. I will be spreading that $7900 budget over 3-5 months initially to see what kind of results I am getting per month. Rest the conversion depends upon Lead Caputuring, Following Up and your overall marketing strategy. I am sure, this strategy can really help you build a small hosting company that would profit you around $2-3k per month at the very least with that kind of initial investment in about 6 months top.
  10. AWS cost estimation for my requirements.

    Honestly, AWS prices would rip you off big time, it won't be worth it because the kind of performance you will receive would be similar. I would rather advise you to look for a Dedicated Server, but if you still want to stick with a Cloud Platform then there are better and cheaper ones available in the market. SingleHop, DigitalOcean, Linode, Rackspace, Softlayer just to name few. DO and Linode is where I would recommend you to look for.
  11. Hey Mike, we have our Cabinets in Los Angeles, Dallas & New Jersey so far in the US and we have discuss your requirement in detail over the phone for RTO/Leasing/Colocation Deal. Maybe send me a PM where we can discuss things out and initiate the conversation.
