How do you choose a VPS hosting Cambodia provider? Here are some key points to look out for.
Know the details of your virtualization technology
- What is the underlying OS: Linux, FreeBSD or Windows? If Linux, what distros will be offered?
- Are they using User QEMU, Mode Linux or XEN? Why is that specific technology selected?
- How is hardware upgrade handled? Let’s say you start out with a basic plan which offers 64MB dedicated RAM and 2GB disk space. Six months from now, you realize you need more disk space and RAM. What are the additional costs and what is the procedure for allocating the additional resources?
Know the details of your hardware resources
- How many best VPS Cambodia instances are run on the host server that you will be on? This is important because you are effectively sharing the host server’s resources with these other VPSes.
- How is resource contention handled? In other hand, what happens if all the other VPS on your host server are running RAM / CPU – intensive processes? Do you have a dedicated minimum amount of CPU/ Network/ RAM usage? If so, how much?
- What are the technical specifications of the server? (CPU, RAM, Network throughput, bandwith…)
Know the details of your web hosting company
These are some traditional questions that apply across the board when you start to choose a web host of any sort:
- How much downtime have they experienced in the last 12/24 months?
- What backup/restore measures do they have in place?
- How long has the company been in their business?
- What is the company’s customer retention rate?
- What kind of support is provided (phone, live chat, ticket email, IM, IRC – 24/7?)
Prices range from $20 per month at the low end to more than $100 per month for higher end systems, but beware: price is not always an indication of more features or better service. If you are still wondering whether a VPS Cambodia plan is right for you, it may be worth starting at the lower end (potentially a 64MB RAM with 2GB disk space VPS). You are allowed to always expand from there — just ensure to choose a hosting company that can accommodate the expansion you have in mind. If you need significantly more hardware resources, co-location is the way to go. However, if you have a small budget but big ideas, a VPS may just be for you.
