Lightbulb Q: Regarding Webhosting

Hi everyone,

I have a VPS where I host my SA-MP server on. I was wondering, is it advisable to host my website and forum on that same VPS too? Or should I get a separate webhost to host those?

You can do it, but you should get a webhost. Example- VPS goes down for whatever reason (DDoS, system crash, upgrades whatever) the webhost is going to go out with it and you're SOL. At least on seperate machines if one goes down the other is still up so people can get some insight on whats going on

You can run both of them on your VPS, but it would also depend on your VPS specs, to an extent, for a smooth functioning.

In my opinion, you don't need to have a completely separate webhost for the purpose stated by the above posters. You may choose to update your members on a separate status page (with A record ofc) hosted on any of the free & trusted services like Googl Pages/Blog, Tumblr, etc. You may additionally use FB/Discord/IRC for the same.

I have been thinking the same as the OP. To reduce spam on Server Support, what cheap webhosts you would suggest? Only for an index page and forums.

I have a dedicated server with a separate VM for the following services:

- Forum
- Database (main)
- Database (backup)
- SA:MP (main)
- SA:MP (development)

All services can be rebooted independently.

I would suggest ( if you're a small server ) to get a VPS with a minimum of 4 GB ram and a decent amount of CPU cores. ( remote daily backup on a cloud aswell )
