How to choose the VPS hosting Cambodia provider

November 30, 2016

There are thousands of VPS hosting Cambodia providers out there, so how do you know which is the best one?

The followings can help you choose the right VPS hosting service.

  1. 24/7 live customer support

Your VPS should have 24/7 support over email, live chat, ticket or phone along with a most comprehensive knowledge­base, so that when you are facing the difficulties with your VPS in the odd hours, your technical staff can help you to fix them.


  1. Hardware

The main Hypervisor where VPS resides have to be configured with brand new and high­end hardware components. You should ask your Cambodian web hosting provider’s about server configuration of main HyperVisor node.

  1. Managed service/unmanaged service

If you are familiar with hosting control panels, shell commands, and you have troubleshooting skills and basic server administration, then unmanaged VPS is the suitable options. Notice that if you purchase self ­ managed VPS, you should be capable of managing software, applications, services that are installed on your VPS. Also, you have to know how to install /un­install, monitor resource, optimize server performance and troubleshoot error in any technical issues.

If you think that you cannot manage such things on your own, or you do not have such time to manage VPS, let choose managed VPS plan.


  1. Price

Determine the VPS resources that you need to serve your sites then find the hosting which can offer you with the best price. You should also ensure that your hosting provider offers a 100% money back guarantee so that you can assess best VPS performance during the money back guarantee period.

  1. Uptime and reliability

Check how much uptime your web hosting offers. 99.5% and above is the recommended uptime score, but anything below 99% is unacceptable. You should also check the VPS provider’s past uptime records, and reviews on various blogs, forums, and third ­ party trustworthy review websites.


  1. AUP (acceptable use policy) and T&C

You should also take a look on the AUP or T&C before making the final decision. Many service providers follow the local state laws against the data protection and abusing/ offensive activities.

  1. Linux/Windows

If you are going to host websites with Windows ­ based technologies (like ASP.Net and Microsoft SQL Server), you should choose the Windows VPS Cambodian Hosting. For PHP and MySQL based websites, a Linux­ based VPS is a perfect choice.

  1. Backup service

Imagine that your VPS is infected with shell scripts and you do not have a recent backup on your local computer. If your hosting takes regular backups of your VPS, then you can easily restore back your VPS to the previous situation within a few minutes. If your host does not take backups at all, you may end up losing hours of work.
