100mbit Unmetered Dedicated Server With WHM/Cpanel
Mar 10, 2008
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.
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 .......
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?
I always thought that 10 mbit unmetered was just a prank or not really dedicated to the server. But damn the server i got from www.kevworks.net totally screamed when doing some real bw tests.
Might try more tests to see if server performs and can provide the bw juice for me.
These are the stats from mrtg i got going :
Max Average Current In 9853.9 kb/s (98.5%) 311.2 kb/s (3.1%) 4805.5 kb/s (48.1%) Out 9553.6 kb/s (95.5%) 849.0 kb/s (8.5%) 9553.6 kb/s (95.5%)
Well cannot really post link to the mrtg as wht mods will go "aah bunny no url posting to ur site " crazy !!
So look at the screenie itself
Amazing i was actually able to pull 10mbit/s out of the server. So good work to you Kevin (kev not sure what his name is or am too tired to remember ).
PS: will be doing more bw tests over the next weeks or over the entire month, i am trying to somehow use full 3.3 TB bw over the month. (doing mirrors for distros and other linux stuff can really push the limits at times) Wondering if anyone know of places to get some beta testers to test the server's bw limits (act as mirror for your game maps, linux distros, rpm packages and w/e comes free to download)
Hopefully server wont be shut down cause bunny used the full bw potential ( i have heard horror stories of providers capping servers further and stuff when customers starts pulling too much bw (maybe cause they put server on shared bw or something).
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've currently got around 10 dedicated servers for the MMORPG we run, 3 of which act as patch distribution servers / download servers.
The patch distribution servers are fairly low spec (Single CPU, 1-2GB RAM, 250GB HDD), but connect through a 100MB unmetered port - all of these are currently in the EU.
I'm now looking at a USA patch server, but not sure where to look. The only provider that springs to mind is FDC Servers but not sure how good they are these days. I don't mind if the provider is on the East or West coast (or even Central), but they must provide 100MBps unmetered (shared is fine).
Currently paying around $100-$200 for each other patch server, so would ask that $200-250 is the limit.
After the recent null route of my server ip by providers datacenter without asking no questions nor informing anyone from VD or myself. I am forced to seek a replacement for a 10 mbps unmetered server used for web proxies.
Suggest me good place which has good business ethics and atleast care to inform their customers of their actions.
no Burst net based resellers or anyone even remotely related to burst!
I've had some people trying to sell me dedicated recently with cpanel for €30, unbelievable that too with core duo 2.ghz, 100mbps unmetered, 250 gb, ofcourse i said no but strangely they were offering cpanel with it. Now that is unbeilievable, when i asked what cpanel, they said they installed Cpanel VPS on it.
It was quite astonished there and they said it was common practice.
Of course i know it is scam but they actually showed me a screenshot..
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:
HP DL120G5 Intel E2160 2GB RAM 2x250GB HDD 100mbit guaranteed unmetered dedicated port Monthly 139 Euro
HP DL120G5 Intel E2160 4GB RAM 2x500GB HDD 100mbit guaranteed unmetered dedicated port Monthly 159 Euro
Here I got a sshd issue, which confused me a lot. I just purchased a dedi yesterday.
cPanel11+WHM panel, Fedora7 system. When I use top -c to check the system, most of the times I would see four or five sshd processes "sshd: unknown [priv]" are running, and about 5 minutes later they will disappear.
