But I have to restart it more often than I care to because it seems that after only a few weeks there isn't much RAM left and a restart becomes necessary. I think I have about 12 domains on that server so I can see how going to 1GB would be necessary once you get a good number of sites on it.

These new servers as any computer now uses a lot more memory than what my Redhat 6.2 machine did a few years back. That machine with 512MB of RAM on it was a powerhouse 10 years ago. I've had half a mind to revive it and put a new power supply in it just to play around with it again. I think even today it would still be fast although not reliable because of the age of the hardware.

in reality terms to run a VPS with sites you need at least 1GB with a 2GB Burst.

a 128mb and 512mb are OK if you just plan to run them for testing purposes or as a DNS server.

There is no such rule. We have many customers running VPS with 512MB RAM without trouble. They can be used for multi purposes such as small sites, but wanted to run separately, not on shared hosting, or email servers. At the end, it depends on how you optimize it and what you are going to use, but it's definitely not only for testing or DNS.

true, but cPanel, DirectAdmin etc. advise a server of at least 1GB although these will run on a 512MB server.

we will never run anything on less than 1GB and advise our clients of this.

Sorry, but you are still incorrect in some parts. DirectAdmin can run on 128MB RAM VPS without trouble with small site, or email. In fact, we have many customers running their dedicated email service on 512MB RAM VPS, with server load is less than 1.

It's long time that I run cPanel, but I believe cPanel has Optimized version that can run on 512MB RAM VPS. However, I do agree that with cPanel, you should have more RAM. It's a mess!

DirectAdmin and cPanel can both run on a 512MB server, but both DA and cpanel advise/recommend a server of 1GB or above

Hardware:
We highly recommend a processor of at least 500mhz even though DirectAdmin will run on slower systems. A minimum 1 Gigabyte of memory is required (2+ Gig is preferred), with at least 2 gig of swap memory. A hard drive with at least 2 gigabytes of free space (after the Linux install) is also required. If you are expecting high traffic levels then you will need more memory, processor power, and hard drive space than we recommend here. Intel and AMD should work fine. Solaris/Sparc will not.
http://cpanel.net/cpanel-whm/system-requirements/

Quote:
Hardware Requirements
Processor 266 MHz processor
Memory 512 MB RAM (1 GB recommended when hosting many accounts)
Disk Space 10GB hard disk
in live chat cPanel will always recommend 1GB or above

Well... not defend, but it's just showing your lack of REAL experience with DirectAdmin. That's applying to a system when hosting for multiple accounts with high traffic. With purpose such as email server, I can tell you a fact that our customers sent out 10K+ messages per day without any trouble in a 512MB RAM VPS with DirectAdmin, again with the load is well under 1. In your quote, cPanel is running on 512MB RAM too, 1GB is applying when hosting many accounts.

I am not sure what kind of hosting control panel you have been using in your 11 years of hosting experience (do I remember correctly? ), I don't blame you, but please do not suggest your customers just based on some text. They are wasting money with that kind of suggestion. If you really want to work with and help customers, test your products first and give them suggestions based on real circumstances.

At the end, I just want to re-emphasize that 512MB RAM VPS can do much more than testing purpose or DNS server, if you know how to manage it.

I must remember to inform DA and CP that you know better than them, we can only go off what the software houses say so that yoiu get the best out of their software. we have tried selling DA but could not get interest in this so we stick with CP, but i have used DA extensively

Its always necessary to provide good support.... It usually takes 6 hours to setup a fully functional VPS for someone......With everything configured in it and ready to go..... I think it should not take much time than that......

It depends on control panels if you have to install any.

Cpanel can take 6+ hours to install and then you need to configure it.
Direct Admin can take the same to install, but a further 72+ hours for the DA staff to wake up and assign a licence to your IP as they still dont have an automated licence system

If instead of using their resources to find the resource and asking you to provide more details to make you go away is how your current host responds to you, then I would yeah, I would switch hosting providers. Make sure you're not afraid to contact a host before you make the decision to purchase hosting, and when they're talking to you they should adequately be able to listen to your needs and provide you with an appropriate-not inflated- billing plan.

to run cPanel finer you absolutely wish min. 1GB Ram, but adage that. you say you accept several VPS with the aforementioned provider.

even if the provider is top notch, i can recomment big scoots it is still best to advance your servers with several providers rather than accepting all your eggs in one basket.

With what happen , it is just sad that they cannot fix a password problem. Customer support reliability is really a great factor in keeping customer's trust.

With that price range, I believe you are looking for an unmanaged VPS? Do you start for other cpanel, such as DirectAdmin? Or just cPanel? Any recommended location?
