No offense against Volumedrive, but because they still haven’t deployed my VPS after almost a week, I decided to purchase a budget VPS from Semoweb instead after browsing a bit in WHT. I found a good plan plus added a bit of memory to my RAM because I thought it would be better with at least 768 Mb of Ram, I do have 1 Gig burst of RAM
Moving on, their support is really great so far. Plus up time is pretty good, especially because I’m currently using Lighttpd with my VPS, I tried Apache but I had trouble setting mod_rewrite module plus it uses a lot of RAM! I couldn’t upgrade my installed WordPress as well so yeah, I tried Lighttpd and it was awesome.
As for some uncertainties, I asked support ticket regarding installations also with IP Tables and they reply back really quick about 30 minutes, like they did claim in their website and offers. Dustin, the owner seems to be a nice guy as well – one time, he answered my question regarding this software I wanted to install for security of my VPS. The dudes at WHT are also helpful, there are tons of experts there and I’m glad I’m a member because it makes it easy for me to ask questions, read stuffs that leaves me with new knowledge.
Now I’m planning to move some of the websites I’m currently hosting through Hostgator to my VPS, then I will be also getting a shared plan either from Semoweb again, or my other trusted hosts, Preston Host and maybe Host1me too! Depends on my budget and specific needs although I like Preston Host’s current new deal with their new server, Saturn. However, my funds from my client has not arrived yet. My paypal is empty LOL.
Anyway, so far my Semoweb experience is superb! I am still waiting for my Volumedrive VPS though, after all their VPS offer still have good specs as well which I want to enjoy. But I suppose it’s going to take another week~
In Girly Nerd I will be posting my VPS experiences or whatnots then on Just Blogged, I will simply post my latest updated blogs so my blog friends won’t be confused.
