    dedicated server


    It's narly got to the stage where i require a dedicated server. Can anyone recommend a server which they are using at the mo, so they no it's good. If anyone places an add here i will go mental! I need unlimited bandwidth (or low cost per extra GB), windows or linux, an easy way to uplaod and run java applications on it, etc

    i will have two mysql databases or about 20gb in total. which is the best OS to host these?

    i have an inclin it would be windows

    cheers

    I used to have a dedicated box from Rackshack (now ev1servers.net), which was great... look at their site for options

    well it wont matter too much as its pretty fast connections, but perhaps fast-hosts would be better for you?

    If your looking for something in the UK then you may want to look at 1and1.com. They have dedicated boxes.
