Does anyone know of a dedicated servers in USA/Canada that allow IRCd, and the price is UNDER $70/mo.
A server that has atleast 1GHz of processing power is good, such as a (Dual) P3 or a Celeron, or anything better.
It needs atleast 512MB of ram, and atleast 10GB IDE/SCSI (SCSI preferred, not needed) HDD.
And with atleast 1TB+ bandwidth.
Netdirekt has a $50 server which is what I need, though its in Germany, I prefer a USA/Canada server.
I am just colocating servers and managing them myself, and renting services off of them. In the future I would like to start offering dedicated servers as well. I am wondering if many companies do this, or if its more of a general practice to just setup as a reseller? The worst part that comes to mind is thinking of how to do billing for the bandwidth per month. With my setup I would only be offering flat bandwidth packages (like 2TB a month) but even so, I cant think of anyway to automate it so WHMCS knows if they went over, if so, how much, etc.
I use shared web hosting service to get my website online. I'm wondering how many people use dedicated servers or virtual private servers instead and pay from $20 to several hundreds of dollars? Will I face any big problem with shared web hosting package which makes me choose dedicated servers?
Currently I run my forum with a host that is having too much downtime for my liking. I run a new forum on vBulletin with 210 + members with 1-5 new members. My main requirements are PHP5, MySQL5 and OpenSSL. What would your suggestions be for a host / server specification? Unfortunately as I am not using any advertising so my monthly budget is rather low ($50). We currently have a dedicated server with a 2.4ghz processor and 512mb ram but I would be more than happy to move to a vps if it would be more reliable.
I'm looking for a UK based server that allows the following:
-Legal Adult Content -IRC until it becomes an issue -Download Sites -Legal Bit Torrent
Need somewhere that has servers with over 4gb of ram (that should be everywhere these days, but you never know). Need CentOS 64bit offered. Anywhere in the UK is fine. 100mb port. At least 1500gb of bandwith. Fairly cheap bandwidth.
I know thats a pretty loose description i know, but does anyone have any suggestions?
We’ve been asked to offer a technical proposal for a new established TV station, and the IT manager of the station has a long list of requirements, we covered it all, only one issues lift as we never done it before:
They want about 20-100 GB server for hosting and they want to have a mirror server, incase the 1st server was down, so it would redirect the visitors to the mirror server, I'm thinking of getting them a dedicated or semi-dedicated server, but how do you do the mirror issue. Some one said to get two dedicated servers, but::
1. How we make it that when one is down, it automatically directed to the other, I believe there is software’s for that, so were do we install this software: the original server or the mirror server.
2. Should they be from two different companies and to different countries?
3. The web site will be with CMS and DB, how do you make sure that the mirror server have all the new data that was updated in the 1st server’s DB, do they have like shared DB or something, and how..
Any other information, links, or suggested hosting sites for reliable dedicated server (with big bandwidth) would be greatly appreciated.. thanx

In these past many years I have used 7 major data centers which provide collocation and dedicated servers.
Out of these 7 provides, what would make a client impressed?
One is off course the level of reliability, the network must be up without anyone bothering it.
Second is the level of security, when someone is bothering it, their team must be extremely responsive to provide help to restore service back to normal, it doesn't matter if there is an additional fee for it, availability is crucial.
Third would be the response time, which is critical, because this gets personal. When a client needs an "urgent" help, if the provider successfully responded the urgency in a timely manner, it will build an great sense of trust.
It's like you as the provider is storing up "trust funds" into your clients. If you keep doing this, when something bad happens, you will have enough trust funds deposited into your client's faith, so they will eventually understand the situation.
From these many years of using many major provider, I can only experience an amazing level of service from one single provider, which are always dependable and are able to respond to my inquiries within minutes, not hours.
A client expect a reply in minutes when they are leasing a dedicated server or even collocating their servers with a provider.
So far, only one seems to be able to provide such an excellent service.
This is not a rating about a particular provider, but I would like to give an input to dedicated server providers on what's important when it comes to building a good client relationship.
Willing to do an extra mile help would definitely a big plus which I also experience with the same provider.
Lastly, I would like to leave my total satisfaction review for the one provider which surpasses my expectation being their client. The one and only provider which I personally experienced an outstanding level of service is ThePlanet.
With their pricing, the level of service I received as a client is outstanding.
I am currently using hostmonster.com and I've noticed that my service is starting to go downhill. The site is taking longer to load and I've read that in some cases they will terminate your account without notifications.
I am a photographer and my website will be growing in the future. I am looking for a site that I can host my high res images and maybe video streaming for my wedding events. Should I go with a semi-dedicated server?
What are some cheap reputable semi-dedicated hosting companies?
as of lately I've been looking for a new test server to run some software off of, and a server in the UK would be the best for my needs. Now, I know the advertising forums work great for finding offers, however, I was wondering if there were any servers cheaper than the atom servers at a2b2 for £25.
I am currently with The Planet with the following configuration - Dual Xeon 2.4 - SCSI, 1 GB RAM, 73 GB 10K RPM SCSI/SAS HDD. But it lag spikes when I run a Counter Strike server on it, I don't know if it's there network or something wrong with the hardware.
I had a Pentium 4 2.8 ghz from Calhost and it never lagged, and keep in mind this is a Dual Xeon. I have been trying to figure out the problem, but no luck yet. My question is - what other companies in Texas sell dedicated servers?
Does anyone know what could be causing the lag spikes? Or had a similar incident with The Planet. I don't know if it's there network.
I am thinking about launching an all in one hosting company but the only problem I have is I don't know what I need to have hardware and software wise to start hosting dedicated servers. My servers will go into a data center in Tampa FL.
what I need to be able to host dedicated servers. For example how to I do a network installation of linux and things like that.
Has anyone used Hostgator for dedicated servers? Their packages look like great value for money, with cpanel, WHM and even free WHMCS licence all in for $174 a month. Any reviews would be appreciated before I take the plunge.
