Servers and hosting

Over the last 15 years I’ve had experience of lots of hosting services. Some better than others. As my experience has increased, my requirements for hosting has changed from being cheap and easy to use, to being more performant, better services but still within a sensible budget.

So what is this site hosted on right now? Read on to find out.

Here are the specs:

  • Managed VPS (Virtual Private Server)
  • Reseller Account which allows me to host multiple web sites and also resell the hosting services if I want to.
  • Equal share of 16 CPUs
  • Guaranteed 2GB RAM
  • Server location: Texas, USA
  • CentOS Operating System

I use services provided by Knownhost who have a good reputation and provide a great service. I’ve had no bad experiences with them so far and they have always been really helpful when I have needed technical support to get involved. They handled the whole migration from my previous supplier and their prices are also good too.

As I use a VPS, I have access to make most changes I might need. I just have to be careful to avoid degrading the service for the other web sites that I host on the server. The joys of web hosting.
