    Question Dedicated Hosts?


    My website requires LOTs of webspace and bandwidth. No normal host could possibly handle it, so I'm thinking dedicated server. The only thing is, the site has a low budget. Are there any dedicated servers that are available for $100-$150?? I don't care if it's not top of the line, as long as a have quite a few gigs of space (20+ is not needed, 6 would be ok) and they give me a lot of bandwidth.

    Please let me know of any you think I should check out.
    Thanks

    Thanks, but that's not a dedicated host. Plus I need more space than that, and a dedicated host would give me over 5 gigs of space. Another benefit to having a dedicated host is having more control over it than you would on a shared server where there are more sites on the machine.

    OK, I was suggesting it as an alternative becuase you mentioned you were only considering a dedicated server

    Try http://www.rackshack.net/index.asp, they offer low cost servers or alternatively try the Dedicated Server Search in this directory http://www.webhostdir.com/hostsearch...rchType=Server

    Good luck!

    http://powerraq.com from uk2.net - GBP25 (~$38) per month - fantastic speeds, 10.2gb disk, I think over 100gig traqnsfer a year. Intitial setup fee of GBP200 is a bit steep, but then you get really low monthly costs.
    I have one, and although it's located in London, I'm on western US, and the connection speeds are great (~800 hits/day)

    Hi,

    I want to transfer my server to the Netherlands, so you can take over mine.

    It is located in the USA (Ann Arbor, Michigan) and it has a double T1 connection. It is completely installed: Red Hat 7.1. Apache 1.3.20, PHP 4.0.6, mySQL 3.23.39, SSH, Webmin and a lot of other stuff.

    The hardware is 168 mhz, 168 ram, 6 gigs HD. The bandwith is no problem.

    If you are interested you can contact me with for the details over e-mail.
