Hi Everyone,
How to start with unmanaged VPS?
Almost VPS servers I used are managed VPS and I often ask my hosting providers when having problems.
Now I want to move to unmanaged VPS servers, what are steps to control it and having websites run smoothly on servers that I will manage?
Thanks !!

Depending on your knowledge, of course, I would suggest that the first step should be choosing the control panel you want to use to manage your VPS. You can search online to learn about them, but basically, a control panel would give you all the basic tools for hosting a website.

Afterward, you might need to install some tools manually, which are not offered by the panel you chose.

It is easy to start with control panel (cPanel/Plesk or Directadmin), but you still need also knowledge how maintain server's and software's.

You may also need to consider server security, do it itself or using some plugins.

There is lot of things, like Backup Strategy and what if you coming problems, can you solve itself or do you need help.

Choose one of the widely-used control panels like cPanel and Plesk, it covers all aspects of server and site management.

The first thing I'll recommend, learn Linux VPS Administration & Security Hardening.

Unmanaged VPS is a terrific way to develop Linux server administration skills. Make sure that you get a cheap vps with OS reload capabilities, preferably with client-side controls-so you can build/destroy/rebuild at your own pace if needed.

Hands-on experience is valuable for most people learning new skills. I would highly recommend getting access to a VPS which you can use as a sandbox for your testing.

You can connect to VPS by SSH. Connecting by SSH means knowing the basic skills of working with the Linux CLI. To connect using SSH, you can use PuTTY. So, to start with unmanaged VPS, you'll have to get at system administrator's comprehension to be capable to set up a server and to make it secure. Apart from SSH you can use VNC-console with web-interface which is available from many different providers nowadays. It allows you to connect to the server directly through the client panel in your browser. Also it's possible to install a control panel and there are different types of it even for free. A control panel is just a set of scripts to automate the management of servers with a web interface to them. Just start step by step!

I agree that you should choose a control panel first. CPanel works great. Then you should also consider how to backup and protect your server. There are lots of things to manage, actually. Why did you decide to do it yourself? For me it's easier not to be responsible for that.

Hi based on this I must ask why would you now put all the risk on yourself ?

You need to use the server control panel.
If you are a beginner, use VestaCP, in case you do not have a large number of sites on the same version of PHP.
If you have more than 5 sites and they use different versions of the PHP, Python, or something else, then in that case use: cPanel/Plesk, Directadmin or ISPmanager

Managing an unmanaged VPS server require basic level of expertise in running shell commands and running server related tasks. It usually does not come with user interface so everything is done via shell.

If you decide to go with unmanaged VPS then either hire a sys admin which might cost you a lot or get a solution which let you integrate the UI on top of your VPS server.

When you select an unmanaged VPS, it comes with a lot of accountability.


Get to Know the Control Panel

Manage Your Domain Name System (DNS) Server

Install the Software Applications You'll required


Setting up your unmanaged VPS might take a slight time. When the procedure is complete, though, you’ll have a server with influential performance that is adapted to your specifications.
