My first foray into VPS hosts started roughly 3 years ago. It had mostly ups and some downs along the way but I am really happy to have been able to find one fantastic company that hosted me for the past 2 years. I have now moved on to another new host and decided to appropriately leave my review of that company that have served me well, Iniz.com.
I’ve just, yet again, made the switch to a new host service provider. Reason being that the new plan that I am now on is slightly better specced compared to the previous plan (for the same amount of money). The new service provider seems to be doing fine as far as I can tell. From the quick research I’ve done, past customer reviews seems positive and the lack of complaints or any serious issues is reassuring.
I’ve moved from a shared hosting provider to a virtual private server (VPS) provider for quite some time already. Having purchased an unmanaged solution, I had to learn how to set everything up myself. The first time was pretty time consuming as I was worried mainly about security and thus spent much time researching for the best practises before letting my VPS go live. Since then, I’ve moved host twice and during these moves, I spent much time again doing the very same thing. Not wanting to spend any more wasted time researching the same things over and over again, I decided to document the steps I took. Here are some steps that you can consider and follow before letting your VPS or DIY NAS go live.
