So as you all know (…I think) we lsot 5 hours of fun in this forum, so I’m re-posting this topic.
SO the original topic went somewhow like this.
Imagine the following scenario.
You want to move a website + DB from a shared hosting server running on cPanel + Litespeed + Cloudlinux + Whatnot TO a VPS.
How to make sure your website performance does not degrade, BUT instead that it improves?
The initial concern, I think, would be hardware wise.
Two nice folks had replied tothe old thread (AFAIK), here are their contributions.
Check your Cloudlinux limits, run
cat /proc/cpuinfo. Now match it with your VPS. When it comes to software it’s usually not worth to buy a LiteSpeed license, so maybe just run CyberPanel (OLS) or CentminMod (Nginx).
In case of WP, don’t forget to install a decent caching plugin, I recommend LSCache for LS/OLS and KeyCDN Enabler + Autooptimize for Nginx.
But consider Shared hosting as it has it’s own advantages, especially a reseller account.
you can create one cPanel account per website, so if one of your websites gets compromised, the others won’t (reseller account only). Isolation takes a bit of work on a VPS, but Docker is always an option.
you don’t pay for licenses for software like LiteSpeed
you don’t have to manage/update shit
Keep in mind that to compare you should use the same software in the VPS. I made a mistake once moving a site from shared hosting with LiteSpeed and LSCache to Nginx with the default config.
