    Wow, only €300.00 / 2 weeks (then €600.00 /month)!

    Best part: 250 Mbps guaranteed bandwidth. Gheez, for €600.00 /month you'd think they'd give you 500 Mbps. ;)

    Interesting technology.

    why did you set up a 5gb partition for swap? Your server has lot of memory, do you specifically need such big swap partition?

    Swap is still needed.
    5GB is just very small.

    Eva said to me it was depending on the server and websites, his answer was too general. However he suggested twice as memory for servers <2gb. There are many different opinions on the internet regarding swap and I'm honestly quite lost because there isn't any math-formula

    because there isn't any one formula it's down to your server's usage requirements based on what's running on the server, what tasks you plan to run on server and web app usage requirements.

    For example if you had 256MB of memory, setting swap to 512MB isn't enough for most active servers sites. But if you had 256GB (gigabytes) of memory, you don't need to set 512GB (gigabytes) of swap. Examples of 2 ends where a fixed formula doesn't work.

    Once partitions are created through GUI in SYS, is there any way to resize it in the same way or revert changes? I don't have enough experience in command line yet :dead:

    If you don't have experience then best way is reformat and reinstall. FYI, for resize you can't resize down for CentOS 7 XFS formatted partitions for that you need EXT4 partitions if you do it from command line so if that's what you need, reformat and reinstall probably best anyway XFS FAQ - XFS.org
