I'm not using 100mbit line but I also can't tell you how much bandwidth are we using (graphs don't work now). Seems like we are using a little bit less than 300 gb/day.
We are a Free Image Hosting - FunkyIMG.com
To make it clear, we do respect laws but we usually have problems with some people uploading some s**t to our server (for example, CP).
As I'm almost the only one man to maintain that server (I do sleep sometimes or even can go on vacation) - I would like to kindly ask my new ISP not to take my server/ip down asap, but to contact me. With LeaseWeb and Ecatel I've managed to wipe all CP in several hours after report (and they gave me much more than 1-15 mins) even if I was in abroad.
We were hosted by PoundHost/UK once - and the server was taken down without any notification.. With other hosters everything is ok - even if I receive ~2 CP abuses a week.
So, suggest me a EU (I think NL, not UK) company with not very expensive shared 100mbit line and friendly people
Can I find something better than:
100mbit guaranteed unmetered dedicated port
Monthly 139 Euro
100mbit guaranteed unmetered dedicated port
Monthly 159 Euro
i am always searching for an affordable provider offering ddos filtered servers.
I am interested in the offer of 10TB.com, and i really would like have opportunity of test it without renting for the whole month (because i believe they will not protect me) To verify this theory, I decided to rent a VPS node from VPS.net, assuming they are on the same network. I did some tests, and i was actually not protected (i think i have been null routed after a small flood). Talking with a VPS.net technician, he ASSURED ME 2 TIMES THAT NEITHER VPS.NET OR 10TB.COM ARE DDOS PROTECTED!
This is against all that has always been told from 10tb.com sales. So I returned on 10tb.com site, and asked in live chat some clarify. The man replied that yes, there is no protection. Then told me to wait, and when he returned he told me that 10tb.com servers are ddos protected, VPS are not (!!!). I am very very confused. if there is some 10TB.com sales agent, i kindly ask to have opportunity to make a test for a few days, or have a 7-day money guarantee.
Typically I don't post reviews on the forums but I guess I will go ahead with this one . We ordered our first server in November .
First off for those of you who don't know 10tb is under Midphase, which in turn is under UK2. I cannot have enough praise for UK2, Ditlev is an amazing CEO who will help just about anyone and truly does care about every client getting the service they deserve. I have always seen UK2's offers and usually wrote them off for being too good to be true, most recently they had the 10 deals for the birthday special and had the 100mbps unmetered Atom server for an amazing rate (99 GBP if I remember correctly). But anyone who believes their offers to be to good to be true should dismiss that feeling, they do deliver on what they advertise.
Now onto the review of the services:
1. Ordering/Setup - Nick really helped me here and continues to help me when I have issues to this day. Sometimes the sales guys just forget about you after they make the sale, that isn't the way at 10tb. Whenever I have an issue that I am not sure about an e-mail to Nick usually has the right answer or gives me the contact I need very quickly.
Our first server was ordered and setup within a few hours, with absolutely no issues. These servers are at Softlayer's datacenter, which has a great process for deploying servers, and we had an amazing experience. 10TB gave us all the info we needed for using the private network and panel access for the server to perform plenty of task. You are able to do most the features in the Softlayer panel a normal client can do, except sales and support functions.
We have ordered a 2 additional servers from them in the past month and a half as well, setup within a timely fashin, for the most part. The most recent server had a good amount of addons and confusion in a few parts and got deployed in the wrong datacenter at first, but got redeployed in the correct one within a few hours. We were having some issues with the hardware and software and after not having too much luck with support on what they were responsible for I contacted Ditlev who found the right people and had the issue fixed very fast (thanks!) and haven't had any problems with that server since.
2. Server/Network- Anyone who has used Softlayer knows that they really have their network together, since we do internet streaming we are always looking for the best network we can use for the least amount of money. Going directly with Softlayer wasn't an option because of the rates they charge for bandwidth directly, so knowing that 10TB used Softlayer's network we went with them. It is the real thing, there isn't a difference between the network you are on with a direct Softlayer server and a 10TB server. They are on the same private and public networks. We haven't had any issues at all so far (TX Datacenter) with the network and couldn't be happier. Speeds couldn't be better . There isn't much to say about the servers themselves, besides the nice IPMI feature you get. It has helped to be able to use the console and reboot controls when things have gone wrong.
3. Support- Support has been pretty good at Midphase, sometimes just a tad slower then I would expect but not to the point where I would ever complain. Sometimes they seem to just forget about tickets when they aren't the most important things in the world (like minor sales questions) but if you really need to find the answer you can usually just e-mail someone and they will get the answer very fast. The support has been amazing on important issues like servers not booting and other issues.
Conclusion- If you need plenty of QUALITY bandwidth, there is no one that I have found that compares to deal 10tb provides and the people there that run it. The price can't be beat, and in reality you can sometimes get a more powerful server with more bandwidth at 10TB then you can get directly at Softlayer with 2tb of bandwidth.
Well, that was longer then I expected. Hope it helps someone make a decision if they are thinking about using 10TB or Midphase . Oh yeah, and UK2 has to be one of the best companies at acquiring companies and making them even better.
I have a 100 mbps unmetered dedicated server + cpanel = $425 in 10TB.com and I would like to hear if you guys can advice me on a better deal, I have seen lately great offers for less, so I wonder if I am paying more than the average for a 100 mbps unmetered dedicated + cpanel. I don't complain service is good, well theplanet was better but even more expensive.
I have an adult video site so all i need is bandwidth.
I appreciate your feedback on current prices and what i paid there. $425 for unmetered 100 mbps dedicated + cpanel is okay? paying a lot more? After all 10tb is a reseller, so should i go to another reseller that charge less?
Both are great companies which causes me to have a hard time deciding which to choose..10TB -Resold servers from SoftLayer, which is a plus -SoftLayer offers small to mid range DDoS protection if I am not wrong -Cost efficient -Reputable -And many more..Gigenet -Cost efficient -Owns their own datacenter -Offers a wide range of products and add-ons for a low cost/minimum cost -Solid SLA -Reputable -And many more..
I am also considering going for both, but I still need one of them for a start..
Personally I like 10TB more, for no particular reason, just liking it, but I can't resist what Gigenet offers too.. I wish to go for both too..
what kind of incoming and outgoing bandwidth should i be able to consume from FDC?
Im getting about 60KB down and 500KB up.
further since i havent been able to hold the number of radio slots I used to I feel like something is not right, i seem to get normal ping and traceroute but noticed that an mtr router displays some sort of odd results, am I reading this correctly?
seems like there is always a couple of hosts with a ton of packet loss. how can i tell if there is some kind of problem here? the server worked great for 6 mos and now it just seems like it never has come back .......
After being with 10tb.com for months I decided to write a review of my experience so far.
A little about why i joined them: my main reason to moving from 10tb.com was simply because of it's amount of quality bandwidth backed by softlayer.com and the fact my 3 sites were outgrowing my 3 VPS's (knownhost and FDC).
Below I've rated each aspect of my 10tb.com experience.
Uptime: rating 9.8/10 Uptime has been great, the only downtime I've ever experienced in 2 months was 30min I believe.
Managed Support provided by Supreme Support: 9/10 The first month with 10tb.com I decided to get help with various issues like optimization and security hardening, for the most part it has been great, the only thing that annoyed me was the way some tickets were initially handled. For example sometimes if I requested help with something I'd get half an answer or a do it your self instructions.
Sales: 8/10 My sales experience was a bumpy one,this was because I had my server upgraded to a better special deal which required them to swap my physical server, in the process they issued me a total new invoice which i paid, this resulted in overlapping invoices and tons of confusing with tickets going back and forth and since the time zone difference between Australia and US is quite large this caused it to drag on even longer than it should have.
Although I rated it 8 I believe most people won't experience what I have so it should really be 9/10 -1 for response times for non US residents.
Hardware & Bandwidth speeds: 10/10 Nothing to say much here except everything has been perfect! simply quality stuff backed by softlayer that you can't go wrong with.
Value: 10/10 I've been checking offers on WHT almost daily and still do to this day,and I think I have one of the best deals out there. for $209 I'm getting a Quad Core Xeon 3220/8gb RAM/2x250gb/Cpanel/20GB NAS/ 10TB tier 1 bandwidth.
That about rounds my experience, I truly hope to continue with them and can see my self purchasing another server in the foreseeable future
dedicated server for my PHP/MySQL browser game. I've been working with CentOS 5/cPanel on my current server and I have no reason to change as it works very nicely. However I can only push 1500tb traffic per month with my current server and ideally I want to be able to push up to 5000-6000tb. Does anyone know of any reliable hosts with good uptime that provide high bandwidth packages such as FDCservers 100mbit Unmetered servers. I recently requested a custom quote from FDC but they never got back to me, would you recommend them?
cheap dedicated server for remote backups with at least 200GB hard drive and 100Mbps up/down connection and 1000GB transfer. It would be the best to be in US, but it can also be in Europe if speed from US can be at least 60Mbps.
The best I found is Hetzner (49 eur), but they are in Europe and they have a 99 eur setup fee which is too much for me.
It would be great that it's even cheaper than this, because this Hetzner server have a dual core AMD 5600+ CPU, 2x400GB HDD and 2GB of RAM, so because I don't need all that I was hoping to find even cheaper Celeron or Sempron with 200GB HDD and 512MB or 1GB of RAM in US.
I can stay for a long long time, and thus building a strong server by upgrading whenever I have the spare cash to do so. What I'm thinking is a service where it's possible to buy more HD space, RAM or CPU by paying a ONE TIME fee.
Other requirerments is: - It must come with cpanel/whm - CentOS or linux OS - I would prefer if the server is managed, and unmetered.
The server should of course be used for everything from having image host, to downloading via bitorrent. Obviously I'm looking for a host who doesn't put their nose into my business.
I'm in the market to purchase a handful of dedicated servers here in the next few months. I'm looking for the most "bang for the buck". And preferably don't want to pay more than $700 - $800/server/month. I stumbled onto 10tb, I've been doing a little bit of research, and so far have not found any negative reviews other then people trying to user their vps servers from outside the US and expecting 1Gbps speeds.
Anyway, I digress, their price tags are definitely in my price range. About $638 for an 8core server 2.26Ghz 12GB ram 2x250hdd, 100mbps unmetered. Best deal I've seen yet.
So far I like what I see with 10TB but i want to verify that I can expect to get the results I need. I've talked to support and they say it is dedicated bandwidth which means I can burst into 100mbps for long periods of time. I care about this more than anything. Most of these servers are going to need that connection, and I expect to max it out quite often. We plan on launching several game servers so bandwidth is definitely a necessity.
I will also be hosting our web-servers as well and will be looking to deploy load balancing when the time comes. So I would also like the ability have these servers in a private vlan.
Are there any 10TB customers out there using their 100Mbps unmetered plans with heavy loads? I know soft-layer has an amazing network. I just want to make sure this is dedicated bandwidth and I can loadup the port for days if needed. Without experiencing problems, server being shutdown, or extra fees coming into play.
I can probably expect to be at a normal load of about 60% or more bandwidth usage per server.
10TB really stands out to me because its on soft-layers network, and they have 3 different locations I can locate these servers. Which since we'll be deploying game servers is great to ensure low pings to all our clients.
I am open to looking at other hosts as long as they can provide me with the above requirements. I'm very interested in what 10TB costumers have to say.
I have client that use around 6-8 TB per month of traffic (nothing unusual really).
The issue is that, at some short hours per week (twice or less per week) - burst goes to 90 Mbit. So basicly, I need a solution, where in near future, if need it - burst can go all the way up to 130-150 Mbit when need it. Any Gbit providers I seen, they usual say like speed will be around 80mbit or so - and that makes no difference.
I did check RAPIDSWITCH, and in all aspect they ar great (nothing to complain) - but the offer they have with 10TB data, is good only unless you pass 10TB at some point.
After that, 1 TB of data is $200 or so (depens on exchange rate of $).
At the moment, 10TB of data transfer should be enough but if by some chance, it goes beyond that, it will incresse the cost alot.
Hosted content is pure FLV files, normal videos, nothing special.
My budget is in normal range, but still the less is better.
I will take any suggestion on this, or if someone can push me in some direction (company or point of contat).
I'd like to install ACP because I have a account on the VPS with which I'd like to try it. The problem is that I already have Zend Optimizer installed (by default) and I've read that the two do not co-exist well together.
1) Is there a way to configure PHP such that ACP is only installed for this single cpanel account? or is the process of uninstalling Zend and then installing ACP a global thing that will have to affect all accounts?
2) Also, if I do go ahead and uninstall Zend, and then install ACP, but have a problem, is there a good way to reverse what I've done if there's a problem?
Clearly I'd backup php.ini, but other than restoring the VPS, is there an easier way to "go back to a restore point" (for lack of a better phrase)?
