Tips for Finding the Quality VPS provider?

The market is flooded with VPS (virtual private server) hosting options. It seems everyone and their mother has a overloaded server in his/her closet. Enterprise options always seem priced insanely high, which make the ones that are cheap and claim enterprise level seem shaky.

What do you look for in a quality VPS provider (language support, 24/hr tech, etc), and how if at all do you check their credibility?

While looking for a VPS, you must look for a Managed VPS. Managed VPS hosting means the hosting provider manages the VPS for you. The hosting provider takes care of all the Technical issues which occur with the server. He also updates the OS patches, security patches and takes care of all the security issues of your server. If you have any issues with your server, you just need to contact your hosting provider and his support staff will take care of the issue from there onwards. Whereas in Unmanaged one you are the one who takes care of the server. So if there is any issue, you won't get any help from the hosting provider. This might result in downtime and you might loose your clients and suffer heavy losses. People prefer to choose a Managed VPS as compared to Unmanaged one, so that they can concentrate on their Business and let the hosting provider manage the server.

Generally, the VPS hosting plans come with Plesk or WHM and cPanel. These are the panels that provide you with automation for managing your websites and server daemons on the VPS and perform tasks such as managing domain hosting, debugging, content updates, creation and management of email accounts and troubleshooting. The control panel should be user friendly. It should make the daily management and update of the website streamlined and secure.

A VPS provides you with almost all the features of a dedicated server, and if your resources are not as high as a dedicated server, its a good option to start with a VPS.
Make sure that the VPS provider you select offers fully managed servers, 24x7 support for his clients and has a good review. Apart from this keep in mind to check if he offers money back guarantee and monthly billing cycle.

The key features for a vps provider are
1.) Quality of their core hardware
2.) A Company that doesn't oversell vps nodes and launches new ones frequently
3.) A server status page that is linked directly to their server monitoring solution like nagios
4.) Quality of their support services (Live Chat, Ticket SLA of under 10 min)

Also choose a host that is fairly close to you, since you'll be the one accessing the VPS the most.
