I absolutely love saving money, and I’ll take it that you absolutely love saving money to. VPS’s are always going to be the industry standard for maintaining the data and other traits for websites and applications alike, the near future doesn’t really seem like it’s going to bring a crazy and innovative development that’s going to have people leaping from the top of buildings (and hopefully that never happens, but you never know, eh?). A VPS is the best friend you could ever have in the virtual world, but your best friend needs to have a few “cool pairs of pants” if he wants to impress the ladies (that’s a poor metaphor explaining the relationship between SSD’S and VPS’s, sorry about that). SSD’s have always been too expensive for the beginner system administrator to use, but cheaper alternatives are out there, you’ve just got to not be so incredibly lazy and find them. Sometimes they can be as easy as a Google search away, and I know this problem from personal experience. When I put my first Cheap VPS together I wanted to know how I could speed it up for developmental purposes, and I wasn’t really aware of the many forums and other conversational platforms out there to aid the problem.
I ended up reading something about SSD’s and how they improve the speed of a VPS, and I figured that the quicker my VPS was, the quicker I was going to be able to develop on it. I wasn’t exactly rolling in money, so I was looking for the cheapest solution I could possibly find. I ended up taking to Google and I had actually found some pretty solid results, there were services out there that offered quality SSD VPS’s for about eight dollars (USD) a month. I was able to get my developing done at a quicker rate, and I was able to store much more data on the server than I could before. Blazing speed is the only thing that could describe an SSD VPS, and when somebody vouches for it like I do you have to know that it’s good!
SSD’s have many benefits to them, all the way from the small amount of heat they give off to the fact that they have no moving parts to them, but speed is one of the most important things your VPS has to have. It’s almost like football, you’re not going to send an old and deteriorating veteran out on the field when he’s 346 lbs. and overheating, you’re always going to go for the younger and much more slender version (this is another terrible metaphor trying to explain the difference between a HDD VPS and a SSD VPS, sorry again!). I may not be the best with metaphors, but I know a speedy VPS when I see one, and SSD’s are the only things I’m going to let touch my datacenter at this rate; I can only imagine what else they’ve got in the works.
…For Running a Small Windows Environment for a Web Server.
The title is a mouthful, and the lesson is going to be a body full (is that even a phrase?). Website require their very own web server, and that’s why having a dedicated VPS to back-up (and store) everything from your website on is such an important thing. When you’re running a VPS with a Windows environment for your web server you need to worry about a couple of things, and if you aren’t going to worry about them you won’t have the quickest website you could have. It’s all about optimization, and optimizing your VPS all the way from the physical components to the actual settings will guarantee a fast web server. The amount of people that going to claim to provide a “reputable VPS service that will work with your needs” is pretty atrocious, and that means it’s going to be hard to tell the studs from the duds.
Money makes everybody’s life a little bit better, and the more the merrier! A cheap VPS will be easy on your wallet and provide you with the speed you need to have a high quality web server set up, and a high quality website is going to return the favor eventually. Web servers are going to run applications, so keeping a VPS that’s powerful enough to handle these executions without overworking is another task you’ll need to focus on. Take your time with this part, because this is where I got lost in the very beginning. Every single VPS has a make-up on components, and whatever this make-up happens to be is going to determine how powerful your VPS is going to be (and when you’re running a web server on a small Windows environment you can’t expect a lot). A small environment means you’re not going to have a lot of equipment to work with, so having small (yet just as efficient) SSD’s and such is going to keep everybody happy.
They aren’t that expensive when you look at it from my perspective, a couple of years ago a dedicated VPS would be about ten times the price it is today. A Windows environment is set to work with the most common-types of scripts right away, so even the newest of new should be able to navigate through things without struggling. Personally the hardest thing I had to learn was that everything in the world that’s worth something won’t be too pricey, and a cheap Windows VPS for your web server (within a Windows environment) is another addition to that exception. Keep your bank happy and look deeper into the issue, you’ll probably find a service that you end up working with for a long time. I’ve been with my current VPS provider for about 4 years now, and I don’t see a reason as to why I’d stop working with them anytime soon (then again, this is a business built around netwo
