      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.

  2. Colocation West Coast USA

    Been with Quadranet in LA for a few years now. Solid service/support and competitive pricing.
  3. I'd recommend Serveraxis.
  4. We run several WP sites that receive heavy traffic (<50K alexa). Using a server that is optimized correclty, you might be able to get away with 512MB of RAM and 2 cpu cores. I would suggest at least double the specs in order to cover any spikes in traffic. Apache/MySQL out of the box definitely needs to be optimized and is not a suitable solution. Apache will quickly drain your servers memory. Running nginx as a reverse proxy and optimizing MySQL will help significantly. Avoid installing a control panel such as cPanel, unless your budget allows. It will require a license + extra resources for everything to run smoothly. Latency is important and if 98% of your traffic is from Malayisa, you will want to consider a server within 50ms of that location. Hong Kong/Singapore/Japan are all very well connected and bandwidth pricing is reasonable.
  5. Simplest VPN server possible?

    Here's a bash script that will setup a L2TP VPN on a CentOS box: https://gist.github.com/alirezaheidari/1929009 You may have to make a few adjustments.
  6. Buying HDD's in USA? Recommendations needed

    I recommend Provantage and as others have said, Superbiiz.
