This is probably a dumb question, but I've been curious about something. While shopping around for either a cheap dedicated server (less than $75/mo) or a cheap colo for a 1u server, I have noticed that the cheap dedicated servers are often less than a cheap colo, which seems odd to me since with a colo you bring your own machine.
For example, Sago Networks has cheap dedicateds for $50, $59, $79 etc. yet their cheapest colo option is $99. For Sago's $50 dedicated you get 1000GB transfer and 2 IP's, and with their $99 colo you get only get 100 GB transfer and 1 IP.
And Sago is not unusual in this respect. I've priced other providers that fall into this category and they have similar differences.
So why is colo more expensive than dedicated for similar, if not lower, features?
I am shopping for servers with 32-64GB of RAM and the typical list price of $10/gbyte is not in line with reality (ie 4GB ECC DDR2 RAM can be bought for 70 bucks). I saw WebNX special offers between 2-300 dollars for 32GB machines, now that's more like it but, I cant really rely on special offers on the long run.
As my application will be frontended by a CDN, network quality is somewhat less of an issue. Reliability and price is. So who be good a choice for machines with lots of RAM? (almost obviously, AMD, Intel uses FB-DIMM and I am not inclined to pay through my nose for that) I guess WebNX is one,
I am setting up a paid and free hosting site and looking for a vps to get started.
i am looking for the following spec:- 15gb webspace 200gb bandwidth 384mb ram fixed ip burst would be nice then either cpanel or directadmin, not bothered really but since i really want to keep prices low it will probably end up being direcadmin unless there are any other options?
i am not bother for support really so unmanaged is fine although i do want the ability to do remote reboots from hypervm or something.
server location isn't too bothered but uk or us is preferred.
i have looked at cheapvps but just checking out other options.
im a webmaster i have 5 site im having problem with my hosting company ffmpeg dont work etc etc im searching for a cheap VPS i have visit keyweb.de but i dont know they bandwidth and thy dont have support any one tell me a good company my budget 15 month
I'd like to set up a VPN or something similar between my house and my brother's house so we can easily share data and play games. I do not have any server software on my computer. I'm currently running Win2K and he's running XP. Is there a solution out there that's free or at least reasonably priced ($20.00 or so)?
I am running a site that currently has a Geotrust SSL cert installed (Plesk 7.5.3). That certificate is about to expire and I am going with one from a new vendor. My question is, do I need to generate a new CSR before requesting the new certificate or do I use the CSR from the current one and just upload the new certificate file (overwriting the current one) when I get it?
I'm looking for a cheap VPS with the following requirements:
- Based in the EU - Unlimited monthly bandwidth - Price under 50 EUR / month, the cheaper the better - At least 20GB space, at least 10 MBit, other specs do not matter - Linux distro or FreeBSD, SSH access - Good reliability, doesn't mean i want a 99% uptime guarantee, but something that doesn't have too many problems Preferred locations are near Austria, but anywhere in the EU is good. Also it is a plus if they have upgrade options to better packages if i need it at a later time.
I liked Kimsufi, however I cannot rent from my country even though I can pay by credit card or paypal. I am based in Slovenia and i can pay by Visa debit or Paypal (Visa preferred).
Im thinking of buying my own server, i need a cheap mid range spec server, where can i get a decent priced one? or maybe a empty chassis..
then id like a decent priced colo, i looked at 49pence there cheap give 3000gb bw and unlimited IP on ripe justification. but there support isnt for me. they dont seem to listen. if anyone has any ideas on where i can find these 2 things please let me know.
To cut costs I'm planning on eliminating my VPS and will just host the few sites that I have on my home-office network. However I have 1 site that requires a SSL certificate. Is there an inexpensive solution for doing this that doesn't cost into the thousands per year?
I've been using a single VeriSign SSL for years, of course renewing it! Now I need to get SSL on a few other servers for secure WCF services (Windows IIS web sites). I see there are several SSL cert vendors out there from very cheap to very expensive. VeriSign being on the expensive side, then there's geotrust, thawte, etc. Are they all the same in the end, or is there a catch to these cheaper ones?
I run a video streaming site and currently buying 2 gigabits of premium bandwidth for it.
I have fair amount of visitors from countries from which I never do any income. I don't want to block this visitors but I'm looking into possibility of buying some cheap non-premium bandwidth for this purpose.
Is it realistic to find something less than (or equal) let's say $6k/gigabit with one gigabit (at first) commitment?
i just got this ssl certificate but i have some doubts how exactly should i set up the whole magic. i created the secure.domain.com which suppose to be the sub-domain for the login page which means when user decide to sign up/login to immediately transfer to the ssl state(sample: see ebay.com and then their https login page). so, far the home page which is domain.com(or www.domain.com) it doesn't need to be covered by the ssl. so, i was just wondering how do i play the game? i know it's kinda tricky and the key is somewhere in the sub-domain name(cP set up), .htaccess and/or index.php files but not very clear to me.
My online store is almost ready to publish and Im trying to work my head around this SSL thing.
So through reading on here Ive determined that only the cart or PII areas need to be secured, not the entire site.
My host provided a free SSL cert but I discovered that it is a domain verification SSL only and there is no "clickable seal" or business verification. Verification is important however Im not sure I need an EV cert (nor that I can afford it).
Im looking for business verification, clickable seal, 128/256, 2048bit, free reissue.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a SSL cert and what I might need? There was someone in the ads forum offering a GlobalSign OrganizationalSSL cert for $100yr. Does this seem like a good deal? There isnt a lot of feedback about GlobalSign on the net.
