Part 2: Intro to a typical unmanaged VPS control panel, and taking you through the steps to configure & launch your initial Linux distribution. Tutorial series index at http://guvnr.com. Enjoy!
Ideal for blog and site owners that have outgrown shared hosting but can’t, or don’t want, to afford a managed VPS, this series of blog posts and videos takes a blank VPS, building it into a supercharged server, capable of hosting multi-sites, email and more.
Why do it? ‘Cos it’s easy to do and, for a typical hosting fee of about $20 a month, you can have a solution powerful enough for most sites, and even start your very own hosting company or co-op!
