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.
