      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.

  1. Small companies are good only if you're planning a small project, like a promo site or blog. If you need a hosting for any commercial activity, it's better to address to well-known, time-proved providers, even if they provide a higher cost. I'd rather pay some extra money to avoid (or to minimize risk of) any possible issues at the provider's side in future, so that I could do the business in comfort.
  2. Dedicated Servers vs. VPS (for beginners)

    VPS is more flexible in terms of scaling. When your project gets bigger and requires additional server resources, it's way easier to add them to a VPS, while renting a dedicated server you often have to pay extra money for resources you don't actually use. I would only rent a dedicated server if I knew all its resources will be in use. IMHO it suits most of all to hosting and cloud service providers.
  3. How to Increase VPS hosting Business?

    In my oppinion, first of all you should get a selling web-site, that ensures your clients you're exactly the hosting provider they need and that's it. No unnecessary information. The web-site you linked above seems pretty nice, but the homepage is way to heavy as for me. It takes too much time to reach the end of it. :) Then you can integrate your web-site with a billing system (you can use a self-made or a commercial one, such as WHMCS, hostbill, bill manager, blesta etc.) to automatize your client's accounting. Also be ready to provide a 24/7 support to your customers and answer all the question might occur. And don't forget about marketing. Discounts and promo actions can help you to hold your current clients and get new ones. Also you can start a referral program, it works just fine on attracting the new clients.
  4. How many hosting accounts do you have?

    I have only one account as individual.
  5. I would like to run a CounterStrike server on a VPS, is it okay or I should better think of a dedicated server for this purpose? Thank you.
  6. Which is your favorite vacation place ?

    I'm planning to spend my next vacation in Germany.
  7. Sort Survey regarding Email

    I took the servey.
  8. When should you use SSL?

    Besides, search engines prefer web-sites with SSL over the others.
