What VPS Service Provider To Choose? A Basic Run Down – ThePornGuide

At what point do I need VPS for my Adult Tube Website?

To answer the question above, you need to first understand what is a Virtual Private Server and how is it different from shared hosting plans.

VPS is a type of virtual server – the functionality corresponds to a dedicated server, i.e. an independent, physical machine. It has its own copy of the operating system, specific allocation of system resources and administrative access (root). It allows for full administration of the platform and launching any applications compatible with the given system and platform, also those operating on the server side. Each VPS server is managed independently of the others with which it shares the hardware platform. It can be freely updated, stopped and restarted, which is a necessity for some administrative tasks.

VPS eliminates the disadvantages of shared hosting

Such as limiting user privileges, the inability to install system software (running complex applications) and the risks associated with memory allocation and processor computing power. The most obvious differences are the lack of separate parameters (limits) for applications and scripts running on the server side (the tasks run have all the computing power and memory available for a given VPS at their disposal) and access to the root account, which allows full system management.

Can I automatically transfer data from a shared server to VPS?

You can transfer data using FTP or SSH. It is not possible to automatically transfer data from a shared server (Cloud Hosting, WordPress Cloud, Business Card etc) to a VPS server. It is also possible to use Plugin like Updraft to copy entire site, then installing an App like Instalatron on your brand new VPS. This will make the migration process easy.

To sum up, a Shared Hosting is great for beginners and/or low/medium traffic sites. A VPS running your Porn Tube should be the end game goal but the main issue being, a decent VPS does cost a bit. Solution? Yes!

After having browsed through quite a few VPS service providers around the web, it’s almost impossible to find a good machine for fair price. I started looking for top service providers in countries that are less “popular”.

DISCLAIMER: Setting-up your own virtual machine requires technical knowledge. The first time I switched to VPS I didn’t know what the fuck is going on. I highly recommend hiring a Linux/CentOS 7 expert from Fiveer. It will cost you but it’s worth it. 

(This is how much I had to pay before the server was up & secure)

The Company providing the service is from Poland, number 1 in the country.

I have spoken with their customer service, just to clear some things up regarding none Polish customers. I’ve been told that as long as the user is not referred by an affiliate, there’s no ID check. All EU countries are welcome to use their VPS, for none EU peeps use fake address.

 

Nazwa.pl

When I saw their sale page I was amazed. The price to quality ratio is rather amazing.  For 55 PLN (14 USD) a month.

 

Just to compare, BlueHost.com is charging 45 USD per month for their “Ultimate” plan which is still worse than Nazwa.pl

 

Does it sound good? Go to Nazwa.pl and sign-up.

(Make sure you have Google Translate on, as the website is foreign.  They accept all major Payment gateways)

For testing purposes I’ve bought the basic VPS plan.

Once the purchase is done, you will receive an email with your servers IP address and “very basic” how to.

In the admin panel on Nazwa.pl, you can browse your products, VPS in this case, has dedicated tab on the left side and the server it’s self has another Login Panel from which you can access the Console and the Root of your machine.

The VPS comes with powerful and easy to use Web Hosting Control Panel – Direct Admin ( You choose the control panel during the check-out) You have to Install it via Linux command & root access.

You also need another domain, and have it’s “A” and “MX” records pointing to the IP address of your machine, and this is just the beginning.

I will not be explaining how to set-up the server its self, this has to be done by an expert (Fiverr)

Nazwa.pl has it’s own Knowledge Base, explaining the basic VPS setup procedures and how to install Control Panel/SSL etc. It all has to be done before we even look at our Porn Tube Website.

 

 

In case you need an “off-shore” domain that is not owned by the USA go with AbleHost.com – Dutch company with “No DMCA” policy. They own a lot cool domain name endings, like “mydomain.sexy” “mydomain.pink” etc.

 

After reading this article your head is probably exploding from the amount of shit there’s to do. Don’t worry, it’s normal. When you move from WordPress Shared Plan to VPS, thinking you know shit, but then shit hits you. Some good advice from me:

  • It took me around 9 days of Googling and reading shit, before I gave up trying to do it by my-self, and hired a geek.
  • It’s a lot of new stuff to remember and to learn if you never had a VPS – Take your time and don’t get overwhelmed.
  • Once al the “back-end” work is done, the server maintenance and security is automated. Keep that in mind.
  • Make sure you have firewall installed on your server, and all your domains routed via CloudFlare.com proxy and pointed to the IP of the server,
  • Now you run the show.

 

That’s it – much to learn!
