Lowest specced possible VPS for DA

serv_eeserv_ee Member

I'm looking for the lowest specced/priced VPS that can run DA.

Some providers also give DA as an extra, that would be nice as well. But if not that's no issue.

hm. I've lost a machine.. literally lost. it responds to ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my apartment it is.

    This page says:

    Hardware
    We highly recommend a processor of at least 500 Mhz even though DirectAdmin will run on slower systems. The more cores the better.

    A minimum 1 GB of memory is required (2+ GB is preferred), with at least 2 GB of swap memory. (CentOS 8: 2Gig required, 4+ Gig preferred).

    A hard drive with at least 2 gigabytes of free space (after the Linux install) is also required, not including any website data.

    I've seen shared hosts using DirectAdmin on 2 vCPU and 4 GB RAM servers.

    Yeah I mean I'm not even going to host anything on it I just need the VPS and DA for learning purposes for one of my mates. I'm quite aware of the specs needed but just seeing if anyone can drop me an offer :)

    Thanks though!

  • For testing you can use 512MB but will struggle when updating, compiling, etc DirectAdmin. If you won’t be hosting on it and purely for testing then go with a 1GB VPS from BuyVM or Inception Hosting.

    @Francisco with BuyVM.
    $2/m with free DA
    You just gotta wait it out for stock to become available (I believe usually on the 7th)
    Or @seriesn - nexus bytes comes with free DA as well (look at entry bytes for cheaper alternative)

    You can try DA even on 512 MB RAM , just make sure you have 2GB or so SWAP, works fine. You can get all that in $2pm with including DA @Francisco buvym.net

    this VPS very good.

    512MB isn't OK for DA unless you're only doing DNS hosting on it.

    You really need to be at least 2GB if you can afford it.

    MySQL 5+ and the newer PHP's really gobble RAM and on even a 1GB plan you're likely going to be slapping swap.

    2gb nginx or 4gb apache + a ryzen or e3 core id just get a slice
