I need to get my websites up and running quickly. I am new here, but I used VPS from Linode.com in the past. I need to have ubuntu 12.04, and I need mysql and phpmyadmin installed in the VPS.

  1. What articles do I read to show me step by step method of installing these things?

  2. If I need to host 3 domains in one VPS, do you have articles I can read to show me how to split and prepare my VPS for this purpose?

  3. Can I pay 6months or one year in advance?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Thanks Pablo. <br> <br>@aebelu: Please check the resources Pablo posted above. As for paying 6 months in advance, you can do that only if you’re using PayPal to pay. Prepaying using a credit card is not allowed currently.
