Playing around with VPS.net
Update: my WordPress blog is now hosted on VPS.net, check out my article on WordPress Hosting, you’ll also read there that I actually use a different image than the one below, though the steps are almost the same.
So the guys who run WestHost and provide me with my awesome WordPress hosting, are a sister company of the guys that run VPS.net, and they recently gave me a VPS to play around with a bit. I kinda liked how easy it was to get a VPS up and running with a TurnKey Linux / WordPress image on it, the only issue was it was version 2.5 and needed updating.
Though they told me that would be changed pretty soon (meaning the image will support a higher WP version), I made a quick video on how to do all this:
I have to say it was a pretty nice experience, if you’re looking for a VPS, this is pretty much top notch stuff (being a nice combo between a VPS and cloud based hosting) and it isn’t expensive.
