My VPS Server Setup – VestaCP Ubuntu, 512MB RAM

VestaCP on Ubuntu 512 MB Server

I have been associate with blogging for the past 2 years. Earlier, I used a shared hosting service for my domain. When my website started growing, I realized that the shared hosting needs to be upgraded to VPS (Virtual Private Server).

My first problem was money. I did a lot of searches at Google to find out a company that provides low-cost VPS service. Most of them were charging a lot. Somehow, I was able to find out Vultr and Digitalocean. Both are very good and reputed VPS hosting providers in the world.

I have decided to choose Vultr because, for 1 core CPU, 512 MB RAM, 20 GB SSD, and 1 dedicated ipv4 (with 1 ipv6) address, Vultr makes a charge 3.5 USD only. That’s great.

Problems: The main problem for running WordPress for my website on a VPS with 512 MB RAM is not performative. As you know, the RAM (512 MB) is not enough for a high traffic website.

Fortunately, I came to know that VestaCP is a lightweight control panel. I have Installed and got a surprise. Truly my server with 512 MB RAM is capable to handle a good amount of traffic without any problem. Obviously you know that it is not so good to handle a high amount of traffic.

My advice for newbies is to choose a low-cost Vultr VPS plan if you are coming from a shared server.
