Unmanaged Ubuntu 12.10 VPS - Easy Start With a LAMP Server and Webmin.

Image
Having an unmanaged vps server is not always a bad thing if you are not too  ambitious and know what you are doing.It certainly saves a lot of money as they come cheaper compared to managed ones.
One of the easiest and most flexible way to get started with an Unmanaged server is to install a Linux os called Ubuntu (12.10)  + Apache + Mysql + Php thus called LAMP Server. These are four basic components that make a webpage work.
Working with these components can be hard unless you have a descent UI to deal with.Thus we are going to install Webmin .
We will also try to install some other useful tools for the server that can make your life less painful.
First things first: updatesudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade LAMP Stack (Apache, Mysql, PHP) This will install the LAMP stack in one command
sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ phpMyAdminsudo apt-get install phpmyadmin Choose Apache and then YES for dbconfig-common. If you ever need to edit phpMyAdmin config:
sudo nano /etc/db…

5 Easy steps to make your Wordpress site Load Quicker

Image
Speed is one of most important factors to improve the user experience. No body likes a slow loading website.Studies show that users leave a site if it hasn't loaded in 4 seconds; keep your users happy and engaged by providing a fast performing website!

Wordpress in itself is highly optimized for a rich user experience and the default Twenty-Twelve theme is quite lean for a fast user experience.But the things become complicated when you load your wordpress blog with contents, custom themes, a dozen plugins and media stuffs.
Things you should NOT do if you want your blog to load faster.

Don't use older versions.Always upgrade to latest stable WordPress release.
Don't use unnecessary Plugins & upgrade current ones.It's like putting more weight on a powerlifter, it can take only so much of them and ultimately it may fail.Remove any plugins that you aren’t using. Deactivate them and physically delete them from your web server. Deactivated plugins will affect the speed of …

5 Ways to Host your WordPress Blog on a VPS for FREE !

Image
Many of us started blogging on a free platform like blogger and WordPress.com and then moved towards bigger things like hosting our own blog via blogging softwares like wordpress,drupal and others alike.

While free and hosted platforms like wordpress.com and blogger.com are easy and reliable, they do not provide ample options to experiment, expand and to really enjoy the full potential of blogging softwares.

So, today i am going to tell you about FIVE Reliable Virtual Private Server providers that can be used to host your blog (typically a WordPress installation as an example) for free !

I am NOT talking about those 3 days or one week trial offers on VPS where you have to move on even before you began to feel it !

Every VPS here is free, thus its for limited period of time, but its enough so that you may install your website and then relax to focus on blogging.

The idea here is to have a root access to the server and a dedicated ip address, so that you are able to install each and ev…

$1 VPS - Free VPS Hosting Trial Offers

I still remember those days when i started using internet and i was still trying to figure out how to use a free blogger.com blog. I was amazed by the idea that i could have my very own website that is actually visible on internet !

The world has changed so much in past ten years(and the blogger is still there). Now,the people have so much more flexibility. Instead of having a shared hosting (and thousands of them on the same server) you can have a Virtual Private Server (VPS) of your own , at nearly same cost as of a shared hosting.

As an example, i used to have a shared hosting account with bluehost a couple of years ago that cost me almost $5/month ($50/Year , 2 months free) and now i have a VPS (2 GB RAM,50 GB space and 1000 GB Bandwidth)with End Of Reality for $15/quarter.

VPS hosting is certainly the new trend out there and thus many new as well as established companies out there are luring the customers with free and low cost trial offers. I have already made a post regarding some…

Webfaction gives away $100,000 Worth of Webhosting, Ten years in service

If you thought that the likes of Bluehost and Dreamhost were the best and oldest hosting companies out there, you need to think again. This year , Webfaction.com claims to have completed TEN years in hosting business , and that's an awesome job.

Their blog on Feb 4th reads-
Today marks WebFaction’s tenth birthday: ten years of hosting, ten years of support, and ten years of working to provide a service that we can be proud of. Ten years ago WebFaction opened its metaphorical doors to the world, and though a lot has changed since then, including our name, we hope to be doing for another ten years what we’ve always done: our best for our customers.
However OLD and GOOD their service may be, they tend to keep themselves limited, unlike giants of hosting industry. Not aggressive on the part of advertising and show off, they believe in quality and making relationship with their customers.The same is evident via a great deal of respect in their customer reviews.

So, on this moment , you hav…
