How do I choose the right VPS hosting plan for my website?
First, consider the resources you’ll need (e.g., control panel and types of support) to manage your VPS. If you’re moving over an existing site, think about the reasons you’re switching to a VPS (site is running slow, visitors are receiving 404 errors during heavy traffic times, low on storage, etc.). Also, look your existing site’s data usage to determine what resources (CPU, RAM and storage) you’ll need to get it running at top speed. Another advantage to a VPS is if you need more resources later, most hosts make it easy to upgrade.
Next, look for plans that include backups and restore capabilities as well as server monitoring tools. No matter where you host your site, server issues pop up from time-to-time. So tools that alert you to issues and create backup copies.
