根据客户需求,迪亚莫推出了合租Vultr VPS外贸服务器业务,只对我们外贸建站客户开放,拒绝售卖仿牌等高风险网站加入。合理控制网站数量和类型,没有任何性能限制、安全、稳定、高速,我们自己的外贸网站也放这里。

Wordpress和Elementor对服务器要求越来越高,1H1G的服务器已经满足不了外贸B2B,B2C网站需求。1H1G 服务器可能因为资源不足导致后台上传图片和产品速度卡顿,如访问量稍微大点资源很容易耗尽导致网站前台访问卡慢。做外贸网站建议至少1H2G配置,自己单独购买需要12美金/月,如果使用我们合租服务器性能翻几倍,速度更快,B2B网站合租服务器价格为5美金/月,B2C网站根据情况合租价格为6-10美金/月,强烈建议使用合租服务器。

Advantages of shared servers.

  1. 性能翻几倍,速度更快(使用高配置服务器);
  2. 大内存不怕运行堵塞、可安装性能更好更快的MySQL 8;
  3. No need to maintain and upgrade yourself, no fear of forgetting to renew and being removed by the merchant.
  4. Lower prices, 1/3 - 2/3 cheaper than renting them individually.
  5. Install paid enterprise-grade firewall and abnormal data monitoring for more stability and security.

考虑到安全问题,合租服务器管理后台不对外开放。合租之所以便宜是因为合理利用了闲置资源,网站所有权和控制权还是在客户手上,没有任何功能、权限之类限制。

Buy Vultr Server

Click the blue round plus button in the upper right corner of the "Products" section on the left, and then click Deploy New Instance to enter the server shopping interface.

Open a new server

 

1) Select host type

You can only choose the following chart "Cloud Compute", the other 3 hosting types are the lowest price from $28 / month, too expensive. Foreign trade to build a website can not use and can not afford to use such a good server.

2) Select CPU and hard disk capacity

有4个选项,第一个AMD CPU High Performance (高性能服务器)和第二个intel High Performance 是22年3月新推出的服务器,第三个intel High Frequency (高频服务器)是旧套餐的高频服务器,第四个性能最差价格最低不推荐使用。

为了对比前3个服务器的性能,我单独开了3个服务器并且安装宝塔面板跑分测试,intel High Frequency 的性能最好也最稳定,推荐选它搭建网站。

Pasted 79

按理说AMD CPU High Performance and intel High Performance 这2个新服务器的性能应该比intel High Frequency 要好,可是从跑分情况来看无论是CPU性能还是磁盘读写速度都是intel High Frequency 领先。

我曾经怀疑是不是宝塔跑分不太准确,甚至还问过Vultr客服新服务器性能是不是比旧服务器好。Vultr客服说服务器性能受很多方面影响,他们无法判定哪款服务器对我的网站来说性能最好,让我自己测试选择最适合的服务器。

于是我把一个intel High Frequency 服务器上面的旧站点复制搬迁到AMD CPU High Performance 服务器上面对比,2个服务器参数一致,网站的插件设置之类都一致,结果AMD CPU High Performance 服务器上面的网站后台卡成狗。AMD上面的网站没有访问,没有CC攻击,只是在后台常规打开几个页面,在宝塔显示CPU和内存还有富余的情况下直接运行堵塞100%。

3) Vultr speed measurement to select the location of the machine room

If the business scope is global selectionUnited States (America) Region。美国网络建设比较好,全球访问速度都快适合做外贸B2B网站、跨境电商网站。业务范围是具体的国家/地区就选离该地区最近的机房(例如英国市场选伦敦机房)。

Los Angeles (USA) machine room to the mainland of the fastest link speed, many people will choose it to build a website in the country, especially to build ladder software. Because too many people pile up in this room will lead to many problems, such as SSH often can not connect, ip is blocked, and occasionally the network is very slow. Plus it is the only one that has failed several times before so it is not recommended to build foreign trade websites. We will generally choose the Silicon Valley server room, it is recommended that the first speed test to choose the most suitable for their own network server room.

Note: Often some servers (e.g. 2H2G) are sold out in some server rooms, so switch between several server rooms to find the right configuration.

It is not recommended to choose Japan / Singapore machine room, the daytime speed can be, but at night the packet loss serious very card. Tokyo / Singapore room is not directly connected, you need to detour the United States and then to Japan / Hong Kong and then to the mainland, but the speed is not as fast as the Los Angeles room.

Put2-3Choose $18 USD a month 2G2H high frequency server (60GB capacity) for your website, and upgrade the package after the performance bottleneck is encountered in the later stage.

If monthly sales are expected to reach more than 100,000 RMB, it is recommended to register if there are many visitors  Cloudways is a managed VPS hosting, which is a step up from Vultr in every aspect and twice as expensive. The super fast speed can improve the conversion rate, the efficient firewall and stability can ensure the stable operation of the website, and the 24/7 manual service can ensure that the website problems can be fixed in time.

If the budget is really insufficient, and the number of products does not exceed 50 and only put a website, you can choose $6 USD a month 1G1H high frequency server (25GB capacity) under the transition. Later, the number of visitors to increase the performance bottleneck and then upgrade the package.

1-2G memory server installation pagoda panel recommended to choose Nginx 1.21, MySQL 5.6, PHP 8.1, extremely fast installation. PHP 8.1 may not support some old plug-ins that have not been updated for several years, if the installation of plug-ins prompts an error site can not be opened, enter the folder to delete the plug-in directory and then switch to use php7.4 and then install the plug-in.

 

6) Automatic backup

Don't check the box yet, there is an explanation about automatic backup below. You can purchase the server and then turn it on.

7) Additional functions

IPv6 will speed up website access and is a future trend. Domain DNS resolution remember to do 2 AAAA resolution to IPV6 address in order to access the site through IPV6 address, one is @ and the other is www (the same as A record, specific Baidu).

The automatic backup will be explained in detail below, and it's not too late for you to choose/enable the right backup method for your situation.

8) Check whether the IP is blocked

Note: After renting a new server be sure to ping the server's IP address first to see if it is blocked domestically!

Because many national people take Vultr server to take the airport caused a lot of server ip address (especially the Los Angeles server room) by the domestic Great Firewall (GFW) blocked. One of our customers server ip address is blocked, resulting in not over the wall can not log in, but also can not use some of the domestic plug-in features, after changing the ip back to normal. So you must ping the ip first, if the ping can not be removed to rent a new (or change the ip).

Ping method: Right click the Windows logo in the lower left corner of your computer > click "Run" > type "cmd" and press "OK".

cmd

Enter the screen below and type ping+space+your server ip address (red box below) and press enter.

ping ip address

If the prompt is the same as the figure below, 0 is lost, and the round trip time is more than 100ms, it means that it can ping through and the ip is not blocked.

ping ip pass

If the same as the following chart prompted "request timeout", 100% lost, ip is likely to be blocked, re-rent a server it.

ping ip address

If your server has already built a website and so do not want to discard, you can use a change of IP to unblock while retaining data. The following is the official Vultr IP change method, tested and available. The approximate method is 1 - a snapshot backup of the previously rented server (see the backup section below for details); 2 - rent a new server in the step of selecting the system, select Snapshot, will display the previously completed snapshot backup, click to select, other registration steps remain unchanged. After the new server is rented, it will have all the content of the old server, including websites, pagoda panels and so on. As long as the domain name is resolved to the new server IP, you can continue to use the previous URL to log in/open the website, pagoda panel and so on. After the new server has tested the content to access it normally, you can turn off the old server and delete it.

5) Data backup

Be sure to do data backups! It is recommended that both site backups (UpdraftPlus) and server backups be done. In-site backups are free and can restore specific data for a specific site alone, Snapshots backups can restore the entire server even if the server is deleted/damaged (forgotten to renew and deleted or hacked) and have the highest security. Kryptonian players are recommended to choose Backup backup for server backups, while civilian players choose Snapshots backup. Panel (pagoda) backup will take up hard disk space and is not recommended.

Server Backup (chargeable)

Vultr server backups are divided into Backup backups and Snapshoots snapshot backups, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

Backup Backup
Backup is easy to understand, is to automatically backup the entire server on a regular basis, retain several copies of backup data, when you need to restore the server, click the corresponding time period of the backup data can be automatically restored, the advantage of automatic backup is very convenient, the disadvantage is the high price.

Backup price is 20% of the monthly server price. 6 USD/month package server automatic backup price is 1.2 USD/month, 12 USD/month server package automatic backup price is 2.4 USD/month.

Click Products at the top right corner to enter the server interface, and click Snapshots at the top to enter the backup interface below. Click Backup to go to the backup screen.

Snapshot Backup

Snapshots Snapshot Backup
Snapshots (hereafter referred to as snapshot backups) are manual backups that require you to manually tap the backup yourself before it will backup. It is billed at $0.05 per GB for the total size of the backup package. The advantage is that it is cheap, but the disadvantage is that you need to back up manually. Click Products at the top right corner to enter the server interface, click Snapshots at the top to enter the backup interface below> Click Add Snapshot at the top right corner.

Perform a snapshot backup

Enter a random name in Label and click "Take Snapshot" to start the backup.

Start Snapshot Backup 

One of our servers only hosts 2 new sites, although there are no articles and products but the snapshot backup out of the data has 4.24GB, a month to pay $0.212. Usually a small to medium sized website should have 200~400M articles + product images.

2 normal sites should be backed up with about 5G of data and the snapshot backup cost is $0.25 per month. For the same server with Backup backup, the monthly backup cost is $2.40. Snapshot backups are much less expensive. It is recommended that you should always take snapshot backups regularly and remember to delete old backups to save money.

Snapshot Backup Pricing

The advantages of server backup are the highest security and the most comprehensive backup. Even if the server is deleted, all data can be restored, including the operating system.

The disadvantage is the lack of flexibility, recovery can only be done for the whole server, and it is impossible to select specific sites individually for recovery. If there are multiple sites on the server and one of them is damaged, the data of the other sites will be recovered through server recovery, and the content uploaded in these days will be lost.

 

Admin Panel Backup (free)

If you have installed a server administration panel such as Pagoda, you can backup/restore your website directly in the administration panel. The panel backup is free and you can backup/restore a website or database individually. The disadvantage is that you may not be able to restore the data if the server is deleted or you cannot login to the admin panel, and the security is not as high as server backup.

How to backup Pagoda: Go to Scheduled Tasks > Select the website to backup and the backup content to fill in the task name and click Add Task to complete the automatic backup. Database and website content cannot be backed up at the same time, you need to create a new backup task to back up database separately.

Pagoda Panel Backup Website

 

Site backup (free)

We install all our clients' websitesUpdraftPlus The Backup plugin automatically backs up website data on a regular basis toOneDrive (5G free space), theGoogle Drive(15G free space) and other free web sites with one-click recovery. And you can backup/restore database, themes, plugins, etc. separately.

UpdraftPlus Backup 1

The advantage of site backup is convenience, you can choose to backup/restore database, theme, plugins, uploaded files, etc. separately. And you can separately backup the database before upgrading the plug-in, and restore the site by restoring the database separately if the plug-in has bugs that cause problems with the site. Site backup can also store the backup data in a third-party network disk, security greatly improved.

Because of the Great Firewall, domestic websites can only connect to Microsoft OneDrive in the UpdraftPlus list, and the data transfer speed is slower but within acceptable limits.UpdraftPlus Premium DownloadYou can check it out if you need to.

 

Common problems and solutions

1) The website cannot be opened

If the entire website including the Pagoda backend cannot be opened, it is usually because the server has been deleted by the merchant after too long a period of default (about a month). Login to the Vultr.com server backend and go to billing to check the balance. If the account is closed or the billing balance shows Owe when you log in, then the site is in default and there is a problem.

Pasted 70        Pasted 72

Weekly emails are sent to remind you when you owe a bill, but most people are not in the habit of checking their emails regularly or they go to the spam folder and become overdue.

Pasted 71

Solution: If you can log in to your account, you can charge it right away. After a few hours (sometimes a little longer) the site will automatically resume.

If the account is closed and you can't log in, send an email from the email address of the registered server to support@vultr.comThe content of the email is simply to say that the server was deleted due to forgetting to renew the account. The content of the email as long as you say forget to renew the server was deleted, please help to activate the account we immediately charged in, customer service will be happy to help. Below is a sample email we wrote, you can copy and paste it directly and send it to us for reference only.

Dear Vultr,
My account (this email address) has been closed because I forgot to renew, can you please help activate it so I can pay the bill and restore my site.
Thanks in advance,

After the server is restored, an email notification will be sent (pay attention to check the email), immediately log in and fill the money in. Follow the tutorial above to reopen a server, select Snapshot in the step of selecting the system, it will show the snapshot backup completed before, click to select, other registration steps remain unchanged. After the new server is rented, it will have all the content of the old server, including websites, pagoda panels and so on. As long as the domain name is resolved to the new server IP, you can continue to use the previous URL to login/open the website, pagoda panel and so on.

If you have not made any backups on the server side before, the data will not be recovered. If you have backed up your data in the WordPress backend using a plugin like UpdraftPlus, directly open a brand new server, build a pagoda panel and a wordpress backend and then restore the data through a plugin like UpdraftPlus. Remember to resolve the domain name to the new server IP, the new server may be the same as the deleted server IP address.
