Hi,
Im looking to migrate our e-commerce site and was after some ideas as to what people see best VPS or hosting. I appreciate that VPS is dedicated as opposed to shared resource wise but was wondering if anyone else had any nuggets to share?

Also with regards to VPS can anyone recommend any places please? The site is Wordpress with Woocommerce (I don't really have any traffic data to hand)

Thanks

given up.
Actually you are wrong about VPS been dedicated ... you control the VM, but the physical hardware will be running multiple VM's, so you will still be sharing some resources (such as LAN port).

My recommendation is if you want to run the site yourself and not share resources, get a dedicated server (OVH do some cheap ones at Low-cost dedicated servers - Servers at an unbeatable price - Kimsufi that should be suitable for a starter.

If your not familiar with running servers yourself (security, Linux etc.) then I suggest hosted web service.

Yeah as hackmax said a VPS is simply a VM on a hypervisor, normally ESXi, but could be an ipar on IBM kit or similar.

What's your budget for this server? What restrictions do you require? OS/storage required?

Go over to reddit and there are massive threads on this exact subject with people making various recommendations.

Budget depends really I think anything around £10 a month would be fine - was looking at another forum post on here somewhere with some good suggestions. As said its for work (hosting our ecommerce site) so we can spend a bit more as required.
