It is easy to see why the VPS hosting option is attractive to many people and of these; the Windows VPS option provides a great number of benefits. Some users will prefer the fact that the Linux VPS option is open source, which should make it cheaper in the long run but there is no doubt that the familiarity of Windows will see many consumers opt for this option.
The issue for many people is where to find the web hosting provider to supply them with Windows VPS and there is no doubt that word of mouth is a great way to learn about providers. If you know people who have their own sites, ask them for advice and question them on the service they have received.
Search engines are always a great way to find out which firms are operating in the market but just because a site is listed on a search engine doesn’t mean that it will be a site that provides a great level of customer service. Many poor quality firms have managed to make a lot of money through good use of SEO so be sure that you are spending your money on a firm that deserves it.
While you should not believe everything you read on the internet, asking users on forums and in review sites for advice can provide a great deal of information. A great thing about the internet is that it has helped shine a light on bad firms with people willing to speak out about bad service.
If you are confident in your own abilities to look after the VPS and configure the site correctly, there may not be the pressure to find a provider who offers as much support. However, that is very much a personal choice and one that only you can make based on your circumstances.
