Setting Up Hosting Server

Looking for a quick, easy way of hosting a website on a VPS host? A virtual private server is particularly quick at serving webpages to users, and usually doesn’t cost a lot more than shared hosting.

In this example, I use DigitalOcean, which allows you to create a VPS server for just $5 per month! DigitalOcean, a simple cloud hosting company, have multiple datacentres in the USA, and Europe! This makes DigitalOcean one of the most popular web hosting companies for cheap VPS hosting!

To access DigitalOcean, please click the link below:

In order to manage our VPS server, we will use free open source software, such as zPanel. This enables us to manage services such as FTP, and MySQL databases! You can also use software such as WebMin to manage your VPS server, but I’ll cover that in another video.

You can download zPanel from the link below:

  3. Well-Web net hosting support team are second to none! They've helped me on a number of occasions now from installing WordPress to adding additional domains to my hosting plan. VPS from 8$. Not require documents. FREE management VPS! I always receive a very quick resolution, usually less than 10 minutes. Thanks to everyone at Well-Web net, it's really appreciated and is the kind of service that will keep me as a customer for a long time!

  4. Digitalocean is great, but I heard OVH is a lot better for vps services, but self hosting, in my opinion, is the best choice for hosting, despite the higher time devotion and more security considerations to keep in mind.

  5. Having an ICANN approved domain registrar helps you have a cost-effective & quality domain! BookMyIdentity is an ICANN accredited domain registrar, providing superb domain registration service!

  6. Good tutorial. Does anyone recommend doing a VPS for speed? I know he said the specs for the VPS' but I'm not sure how much it can handle. Compared to say bluehost or hostgator hosting?

  7. hi, great tutorial.. but i had some errors.. i cant connect using ftp to my zpanel.. i dont know y.
    i followed your steps, but when i tried to connect using filezilla error occurred ..
    please help me.. thank you so much….

  8. HI ben can I purely use Digital ocean for website hosting? I signed up the LCN yesterday they web hosting site but I dont understand how to get VPS and web hosting to work together or are they seperate?

  9. Real good tutorial on setting up and hosting a virtual server. I haven't used Zpanel only Cpanel and Webmin. I used to have my own dns mail and Web server running at home years ago using Centos with webmin on. But used cpanel ever since on shared hosting but considering going down the Virtual route and didn't fancy paying extra for cpanel licence.
    Cheers for the video.

  10. Hi,Thanks for your video.
    I got a problem while installing Zpanel.I'm using ubuntu 12.04 version.When I visited zpanel page,I found that they released a new version and only one line of code would install zpanel on the server.
    I copied and pasted that line after login,but nothing happened.
    I got this at the end(after login,and before using that line provided by zpanel)

    New release '14.04.2 LTS' available.
    Run 'do-release-upgrade' to upgrade to it.
    * System restart required *

    along with some other lines which gave me some detail about my server.
    How can I get rid of this?
    Your help would be appreciated.

  11. Thank you Ben for making such a thorough and detail tutorial. It is a very refreshing to know that there is alternative to cPanel in OpenSource Community.
    Thanks again for making this and sharing your knowledge.

    Just one Q? = Do you have any insights on WHMCS (Installation&Configuration) like to integrate it with zPanel?
    And have you tested DreamHost's Dreamcompute and DreamObjects with Services like WHMCS and zPanel?

  12. It will be so good to see a video tutorial setting up Ramnode into a Web host for static websites on their 128 ram ones without a cPanel. Using Debían mini and other lightweight apps to make it.
