The time is near. My current hosting packages have been outgrown. I have a couple of projects that require access to resources shared hosting can’t offer. This ranges from asp.net trust issues to database performance issues.
What am I looking for? Well I am looking for a windows VPS solution. A search here and there keeps bringing up the same results. Easyspace and webfusion. Both have benefits over each another but I am really looking for a host that has outstanding support that I receive with my current host. I thought about 1 and 1 but I really have no intentions ever giving them my money ever again!
I can save £5 a month by merging both my windows hosting packages into an Easyspace VPS solution a month. This does look good on paper but I have my concerns. Easyspace VPS solutions come with a 12 month minimum contract of which I am dubious about. On a realistic level there will only be about 4 websites hosted on this virtual server. 3 low end sites and 1 project that could guzzle resources. The one big factor that attracts me to easyspace is the fact that there isn’t a bandwidth restriction like the others.
For the record I won’t be moving my funky house podcast site that runs off wordpress and is hosted my dreamhost (Use this code for a free domain – SIPHILPDM001). Reason being is that my podcast site takes a bit of a beating from visitors and mixes being downloaded. I’d like to keep that seperate so that all sites run smoothly
If you can recommend any UK windows VPS provider please comment or get in touch. I would also be interested in hearing about positive or negative feedback about the two providers I mentioned above.
