VPS advice needed

Postby martin_five » Mon May 23, 2011 6:20 pm

I needed some insight and advice as I'm not sure what to do or how to proceed. I'm new to the field, my question is when building an e-commerce site for example a online shopping for cloths, do I host the web site in a shared web server and have the payment gateway on a VPS. Or do I have both the web site and payment gateway on a VPS. Is it common or possible to host a web site on a VPS, would there be any performance issues having running the web site and payment gateway in the same VPS. I'm inquiring as I need to know whether to purchase a shared hosting package and VPS package or just only purchase a VPS package. Thanks.

If you're planning on purchasing a VPS package anyway, then you can probably put both your site and the payment gateway on that server. As your load increases you might need to move one or the other to a separate machine, but you should be able to start this way just fine.


Linux web hosting, with SSH access, real-time malware monitoring, and the Softaculous script installer.
