London VPS with DirectAdmin?

tjntjn Member

Hello all!

I'm looking for a reliable provider that offers services in the UK, London preferably, with Direct Admin included.

IntoVPS looks good - does anyone have any experience with them?

Most likely will need a couple of VPS's with 8Gb+ of RAM, and a couple more for a basic DNS cluster.

Side Q: how are you handling DNS for DA?

Thanks!

    I handle DNS via two multi DA nodes which are DNS only. Which works pretty well.

    Depending on your budget, there is @Clouvider. Which provides free DA licenses.

    I'm sure some providers will also chime in with some offers.

  • Have a look at Inception Hosting run by @AnthonySmith (but not here anymore) or AlphaVPS run by @AlexBarakov.

    For separate DNS cluster, you can pick up a $20/yr slice with BuyVM @Francisco.

    All 3 offer great service.

    I was thinking of doing exactly that. Is 512mb of RAM enough for a DA server though? Even if it's only doing DNS? I suppose it'll need 1-2Gb swap space.

    We haven't announced this yet, but all of our plans above and including 2GB ram come with a free 10 domain Plesk license - https://www.synatiq.com/cloud. Not exactly Directadmin, but I think you might be interested. Also, use voucher "JOIN10" from Billing - Add funds - Redeem to for a $10 credit on us :).

    512MB will be fine for DA as you’ll only be using it for DNS. You will need to add in some swap, I personally use 1GB.

    I run it on two BuyVMs too, works perfectly fine.

    If you are using it just for DNS only server then 512mb is fine.

  • Since you are looking for free DirectAdmin, I suggest you AlphaVPS run by @AlexBarakov(Currently using them in Uk).

  • Good job @tjn. Not used IntoVPS personally but others are happy. BuyVM are good anyway but with all the free extras like DA, Softaculous and Blesta they are great.
