    Probably a silly question, but is Centminmod a replacement for Plesk?

    No Plesk is a full control panel Centminmod is not that. Centiminmod is optimized for preformance.

    I saw this in the faq which confused me

    The goal of the Centmin Mod menu based installation was to make it easier to manage without the aid of a control panel. Centmin Mod definitely doesn't work with WHM/Cpanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin

    Let me put it this way:

    Pro's:
    • highly optimized package suited for xenforo
    • includes all the best modules and server software
    • better performance means less server resources needed
    Con's:
    • works through command line. i.e. no admin panel. There is a learning curve.
    This is why I advised to hire someone like MattW or mysiteguy to set it up.

    Centiminmod is a high learning curve if you do not know certain tasks trough command line you will need help, this will cost money.

    Thanks. I think it's something I'll give a miss. Hopefully moving from shared to vps will be a speed increase!

    Dont forget with plesk you can setup ngnix proxy and additional cache. So while not 100% optimized you can create a nice boost.

    You can even download Lightspeed add-on for more performance boost.

    If I were you I would not use cPanel or Plesk. They are both resource heavy and since you are looking for an entry level VPS, I would recommend using DirectAdmin.

    As I mentioned before I registered my domains at Aionets.com, recently (about 3 months ago) I ordered a Cloud Server (2 VCPU and 4GB of RAM) from them with DirectAdmin license. Since I didn't want to pay alot, I did not order a support plan and I asked then for FreeBSD to be installed as my operating system. Now I am almost managing everything myself using DirectAdmin and sometimes I ask their support for basic stuffs and they are pretty helpful. Good enough for me.

    After 3 months I am in love with FreeBSD/NGiNX and PHP-FPM :D


    Including the DirectAdmin license I am paying 9.95 USD/month with no limitation on domains :D

    Sods law! Still waiting for my VPS to be set up. Contacted Strato (Thanks again Google Translate!) and they are sending a PIN to my home address as a security measure! Hopefully Germany to UK post wont take too long!

    Thanks for that. In the grand scheme of things, my forum is small - just slightly too big for shared hosting.

    Ah interesting.
    I had to provide bank account details when I signed up, so they have them details. I did email back asking if I could send them a copy of my driving licence to try and speed things along.

    Buddy, I think you can try the cloud VPS because loading speed will become faster than shared hosting if traffic increasing more and more.
