Dedicated Providers In The UK

Oct 4, 2008

what companies anyone has traded with within the UK, I've only ever worked with companies in the US and Germany. Now I've looked into companies in the UK but I've never used one - well not directly.

Main reason is speed.

If anyone can post any reconmendations It'll be helpful.

Most things I'm looking for is location - (Mainly if I do choose to go colo in the future) - Area would be Northwest, mainly Manchester, since it's only a train ride away.

But that's not all. I'd first like to start off with a small dedicated or VPS - depends on the time. Then upgrade - so they'd have to have great range of servers with cheap upgrade options and/or addons. VPS > Dedicated (then maybe) > Colo.

(PS: I'm just looking for now, I'm just in the process of planning - Main reason of use would be to start a free webhost. - For now no real budget since it's the early stages, check out the competition and all that.)

Top Five US Dedicated Server Providers

Mar 5, 2008

My company (small web hosting company, mostly personal/blog sites with a couple of higher-load commercial customers) is looking to make a change from our current provider to another dedicated server host, and reading through the threads here I've seen a few names recommended but every provider does seem to have its share of detractors as well.

I'm wondering if you guys would be willing to post your "personal top five" dedicate server hosts, bearing in mind we're looking at "middle-of-the-road" hardware, 2000 gig traffic a month, really robust customer support (my current provider wants me to open a "billable ticket" even to ask about network outages!), and we're looking to spend about $150/mo, give or take (less, of course, if possible).

I've been looking at burstnet but that one thread with the incredibly angry guy has me a tiny bit concerned.

Really appreciate the help. After we decide on a move (which we're looking to do this week or early next) I'll post who we picked, who we're moving from, and all the whys and wherefores.

UK Based Dedicated Server Providers

Dec 5, 2008

The reason for this post is some slight unhappiness with my current US-based server provider. In the last sixth months, they've upped their prices over 30%, turned my server off for 6 and 24 hours by accident on two separate respective occasions (then tried to cover it up), before finally giving me some less than brilliant customer service.

That, combined with the fact that the pound is rapidly weakening against the US dollar has led to me paying for an overly expensive server, and also leaves to me wanting to move to a different and UK-based provider.

Now, I don't need (nor can afford) a massively powerful server - the one I'm currently on is fairly basic (single core Athlon, 512mb RAM, 10mbit and a fair whack of bandwidth) - but I do need the control it provides. A VPS providing a similar amount of processing power could be considered, but obviously on the guarantee that the provider isn't overselling etc. I'd like the server to come with DirectAdmin, to simplify migration a bit.

It's also important that the UK-based provider actually has their servers in the UK, rather than just being registered in the UK - the former would still leave me rather vulnerable to exchange rate fluctuation.

Does anyone have any suggestions: either to swing me one way in the dedi/vps decision, or for some decent providers?

Location Of Dedicated Server Providers

Aug 28, 2008

I plan on doing a small, well maybe not too small project and I was wondering if you guys can help me out. I am familiar with some server companies but what I need is strategic locations across the US.

Only dedicated server providers and NOT resellers.

The breakdown:

-Washington D.C.




I know a few, but I will be looking at this list, your suggestions and buying servers from the companies. Please also list your personal experiences with said companies. I will not take Aug 2008 registration with 1 Post count seriously. This is a serious project and I have some money to spend. Let's just say enough to cover the expenditures and then some.

Budget Dedicated Wanted - Changing Providers -let Down

Apr 15, 2008

We use dedicated servers at several data centers.

We have used a particular host since 1999 (we were shared/resellers then) and have used dedicated with them since 2001.

For a particular set of development servers, moderate traffic e-commerce sites and testing we use them.

One particular server has been our workhorse and it basically had a ridiculously low grandfathered in price.

Unfortunately they moved us. That's not a problem. The problem is they moved our dedicated machine with 3 drives to a vps.

So instead of our own machine, we share a machine, and instead of 3 drives, we have 3 partitions on one drive.

(the drives were 1 for OS, 1 for websites, and 1 for backups)

This is a windows 2k3 machine

The did this without notice or warning.

We saw it, then they mentioned it in a support ticket, and now refuse to discuss it (no response to questions)

So, unfortunately we hate to move.

We use 3 provider, none of them have we been with less than 3 years. We are super loyal if you treat us right.

WE dedicate and not co-lo. Co-lo def would save us money, but we just prefer a dedicated environment.

What we are lookng for is an entry level server to begin a relationship with a new host

for this machine

need two small drives (35 GB or more)
half gig or more of memory
p4 or more processor
100mbps port preferred
win 2k3

if you want to throw in a control panel great
(sounds crappy doesnt it? but thats what we used for many years)
multiple IPs

of course, feel free to make it better
looking to pay less than $199/mo - no setup

less than 150 would be stupendous.

willing to sign a contract.

AM I asking too much? considering u could probably do the above with spare parts? I don't know

Prefer North American based machines.

We really don't have that much of a simultaneous strain on these, they are work horses really.

Dedicated Servers For Germany -- Good Providers? OK To Host In Amsterdam

Mar 9, 2008

We need to get another dedicated server in Germany for a video application (so low latency and high-quality connectivity are crucial). Our current server is hosted with NetDirekt in Frankfurt -- our first year with them has been very good. However I want the next server located in a different city, for redundancy.

My considerations:
- English-speaking sales & support
- Highly reliable network
- Low latency to Germany users

Do you have any recommendations among the following short-list of providers?

Is Amsterdam a suitable location if I'm serving German end-users? Latency matters a lot... so if a German datacenter saves 20ms of latency, that's important.

Do you know of any other comparable providers -- especially ones that do not require a 12-month contract?

Fast Hosting Worldwide?

I need to provide an 8gb file download (split into 1gb parts) that will be downloaded by 80+ people worldwide, simultaneously. I'm talking for example, they will be each downloading at 1.2megabytes per second each (this is the average speed of their home connections), simultaneously.
What are the specs or things I should be looking out for in a website hosting provider?
One service I'm looking at is advertised as 0.5Mbps in bandwidth and 100Mbps in transit, for ã40 a month. The service I'm looking at is's colo business service ( What does this mean and is it fast enough? What is the difference between these two figures - 0.5Mbps bandwidth and 100Mbps transit?

Worldwide Server Performance

May 2, 2009

We are a web-based Yacht Charter company, with offices scattered around the world:

Currently, both our web site and our back-office business management system are hosted on a single server in the UK, with an automatic fail-over to a server in Dallas, TX, USA.

The problem we are having is that our sales office in Singapore is having really slow response times and this is very frustrating for them.

Using an application called "JustPing" we see that response times From Singapore are much slower than other parts of the world. (the cities closer to London are fastest, the ones further away are slowest)
JustPing Results

Is there anyway to improve this or is hosting our applications on multiple servers the only way to improve performance. What's the best cost-effective method of multiple server hosting?

(Incidentally, if I JutPing Google, response times are fantastic worldwide, but we know they're hosted on many, very large servers)

We have few domains which resolve properly for say 1 day and again next day its not resolving.

Sometimes this ON/OFF happens several times a day. This happens when we use the 2 name servers assigned to the server.

this problem does not happen if we use a manged DNS service for the domain names.

Fast ASP.NET + PHP Hosting Server Accessible Worldwide

May 11, 2009

Am new and have done the usual forum search but did not find what i (specifially) want.

Looking for a good (shared) hosting company with the ability to run both ASP.NET and PHP sites (if possible).
The hosting should be fast and accessible in US, Europe and China.

Thus far, i have been able to find a few shared hosting companies with a bit of speed, but they will not provide both ASP.NET and PHP

Is my combination hard to find and will i need to just seperate and find 2 hosting companies, one for .NET and one for PHP?

List Of Dedicated Providers With Private Or Virtual Private Racks

Sep 4, 2008

I am currently with the planet and am happy with them, however as part of a new venture I need to gather a list of hosts as well as the planet that will be able to cater to the ventures needs and go to tender with the requirements.

ThePlanet offer something called a virtual rack. This is cheaper than renting a dedicated rack, allows for Gb networking but doesnt not allow for a SAN. Do other providers offer something similar? The cost of putting a machine on the virtual rack is not that much more expensive than just renting the machine. I guess there isn't too much to these set-ups to be fair.

If not, then we are looking for dedicated racks, with the ability to host a SAN at some point, but starting off with say 3 servers (2 web servers, 1 storage server with raid5 6Tb of hdd). These servers will be dealing with network cameras although I don't think that many will be streaming at once but the network capacity does need to be there.

Who's door should I be knocking on to find out some prices?

One final thing, should I bother looking for co-lo providers as well? We are in the Uk but not precious about our host being in the same country at all (it would be nice but uk prices are ). Really, all we would be able to do with co-lo is buy the hardware outright to save price as we are not interested in looking after the hardware.
