Since virtual private servers by nature have limited system resources, getting them to perform adequately can be an important part of running a server. Here are a few tips to help you get the best performance out of your VPS hosting India

Disable system services.

The best way to increase your VPS performance is to deactivate unnecessary system services. Activated services that are never used will keep consuming precious CPU time and RAM. If you do not need these services, disable them immediately.

Configure Apache properly.

Most system administrators and clients have a hard time configuring Apache worker threads properly. The best way to do so is to check the amount of memory Apache is consuming, and adjust the MinSpareServers and StartServers directives as required to free up unrequired memory.

MySQL should be configured properly.

A common way to increase RAM is to configure the cache sizes of MySQL. If your MySQL server is using too much memory, reduce the cache sizes. Similarly, if your MySQL gets slow due to large requests, make sure to increase the MySQL cache.

Disabling control panels.

There is no doubt that control panels, such as Plesk, Cpanel, phpMyAdmin and Webmin make things easier. However, deactivating these packages tends to free up quite a lot of resources. One of the best solutions is to disable these control panels till you need them- after which they can be turned on through a PHP script.

Clean up the modules.

There will always be features or modules that are enabled in server software packages that are clearly not needed. Have a close look at the configuration files, and decide if you really need FrontPage support, or other related modules that are shipped with the Linux VPS packages. Deactivating unrequired plugins or modules tends to decrease the system memory that servers may require, which in turn will offer more resources for the software that actually needs it.

These five tips can help you decrease the RAM that your virtual private server uses by almost 30-40%, saving you a lot of money every month. Since most hosting providers start their plans of cheap linux VPS Hosting India with 256MB of random access memory (with costly upgrades), better use of VPS is an important step. However, make sure you have a technical expert perform these tips. They will be able to perform them in less than a couple of hours which means you will get a return on investment after merely two to three billing cycles. You can use the extra money to further your business!
