Dec 2, 2008

I'm interested in getting a VPS (nothing too much - probably at least 5-10GB space / 30GB bandwidth) for a forum I run based in Australia. My budget is probably around $40/month. BTW I'm after managed.

My main issue is that I would like it to be a decent speed for Australia (specifically Melbourne). Where should a datacenter be located for Australia?

VPS In New Zealand Or Australia

Jul 2, 2007

I have used before and was very happy with everything except bandwidth speed. If i ping the server, I get around 198 to 220ms response. VPS is hosted in USA, and I live in Auckland, New Zealand.

I am planning on starting my own personal business, which is going to be relatively small to start of with... I wanted to purchase a VPS to host my website as well as host few other websites for clients if required. I will be running typo3 content management system with mysql database. I wanted the response time to be better than

The companies I have explored in NZ are 3 times more expensive than VPSland. I wanted a server which has around 300mb ram or so. Would prefer Windows 2003, if not Linux.

Please recommend me which VPS provider I should go with? I suppose it should be based in Australia or New Zealand as the traffic will be national mostly. or even USA or UK or any other country which provides good response time for NZ visitors and has competitive prices?

My budget is around $20 - 30 US max

Dedicated Servers For Australia

Jul 8, 2008

I was wondering what people in Australia use with regards to Dedicated Server companies. Do you go local in Australia or are overseas companies just as good?

If local what do you guys use? If overseas, where do you get the fastest bandwidth to Australia, etc.

Hosting In Australia For American Domains

Dec 20, 2008

I've just purchased 6 domain names.

3 x .com
2 x .info
1 x .net

The sites will be viewed mostly by an American audience. I've already decided that the hosting package should be a VPS as this fits my budget.

My question is whether I should host these domains in the States or my location, in Australia? My concerns are:

- If I host in Australia, will the States experience a lag in site loading

- Prices in Australia seem to be cheaper

- If hosted in Australia will it have a negative effect on how the site is ranked on American search engines such as

Browser Timing Out/ftp Issues Asia Pacific/Australia/Oceania To US

Aug 11, 2008

I have a VPS located in LA, USA.

For over a week now I have had the following network issues:

- browser timing out (for me and visitors to my site)

- ftp connection issues

The server load is low so it's not server related.

Traceroute TO the server appears fine.

Traceroute FROM the server to users IP's appears to have issues over the SingTel/Optus network.

My webhost says it's an issue for SingTel/Optus.

SingTel/Optus Engineer say:
"Our testings point to a problem either within Cogent's network or on a peering link between Cogent and Singtel in LA.

I'd suggest that the owner of the domain (me!) approach his hosting provider and have them escalate to Cogent. We can't escalate to Cogent as we have no peering with them."

So I've been the meat in the sandwich for over a week with no sign of a fix.

My options appear to be to either move the VPS away from the webhost and host it locally (Australia) or to somehow wait for someone to step up and take responsiblity and get this resolved.

My heart says wait as it's not *my* responsibility but it's costing me financially and professionally.

Anyone else experiencing similiar/same issues from the Asia Pacific region to the US?

44U+ Colocation Value

Oct 4, 2009

Is there a "premium" for colocation space in cabinets which are taller than 42U? I'm putting some cabinets into a datacenter cage, which I will lease to 3rd parties as colocation cabinets, and there is plenty of height below the ceiling (about 290 cm). I could put in 42U cabinets, but I could go taller, up to about 48U.

The cabinets will have about 10 kW delivered to them (8 kW usable per cabinet), but the UPS is sized for an average load of 5 kW per cabinet. Cabinet depth is 1200 mm. There will be cable tray 10 cm above the cabinet.

If you were going to colo 5 kW of equipment (average) per cabinet, would 48U cabinets have value to you over 42U high cabinets?

US Colocation?

Jun 13, 2009

I'm with is looking to colo 2 x 1RU servers in the US, so looking for suitable colo facilities.

We definitely want to buy, own and manage the servers ourselves, so we're after colo & bandwidth, not server rental.

As we're new to colo in the US, any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Servers will be 2 x quad core CPU, 8GB RAM, 2 x SAS HDDs, 1 x PSU, so we'll obviously need a facility able to provide the required power at a reasonable cost.

We'll need 4 network points, 2 for each server (1 Internet, 1 LOM).

Bandwidth wise, we're expecting to start with low demand, but grow steadily over the next two to three years.

Ideally we're after flat rate bandwidth in the order of 512Kbps - 2 Mbps, aggregated across the network points, with no excess usage charges.

95th percentile billing is also an option, but less preferred - we'd much rather know we have a fixed monthly OpEx, instead of the unpleasant surprise of a large excess bandwidth bill!

We're happy to look at other bandwidth options, so long as they provide a fixed monthly cost, and let us scale at a reasonable price, as we need it.

We'll like a /28 of IP space - 8-10 usable, but may be able to get away with a /29 if it's the make or break decision.

Colocation In NC

I am looking to colo a 1U server in a DC in North Carolina. I would need a 10Mbit line un-metered or a metered 100mbit.

I could negotiate on the bandwidth if its not possible in NC .

I have been researching for a while and the DCs here are very very expensive so far...

US Colocation

Oct 9, 2009

I've recently acquired a 1U rack mount server from eBay. I believe it kicks some butt...and now I am thinking about looking for a colocation provider to host it for me.

It's for my own websites, not web hosting or storage. I don't need any sophisticated control panel, as I've pretty much made my own. I only need enough IP addresses to have my own name servers and one for all of my websites (I don't need each site to have a unique IP). I don't need any management help as I can manage my own servers. A simple data center control panel with the ability to hard reboot my server would be nice.

However, if the provider charges anything above $70-$80, I can just rent a dedicated server for around the same price. I know the dedicated server would not have the same features and hardware as my server, but if I'm providing the server, why should I be charged the same amount as if they were providing me with a server?

DNS And Colocation

Apr 22, 2008

I'm trying to figure out my whole DNS situation now that I switched over to colocation. I have 2 servers, one hosts multiple sites and the other is just a backup.

I'm not sure what to do with DNS hosting. I could either host my DNS on both the servers (ns1,ns2 main server ns3,ns4 backup server). Does this mean if the main server goes down (ns1,ns2) it'll start using ns2,ns3? If so, can I just have ns2,ns3 point to my backup server IPs and traffic will just resume on the backup of the main server goes down?

If I go with a service like, can I just point my main domain's name servers to, ns2, ns3, etc.. and then point all my other domain's name servers back to my main domain OR would I have to point all my individual domains to dnsmadeeasy's name servers?

New To Colocation

Jan 8, 2008

I have several servers on datacenters.

I was wondering, I always did, that is would be so much nicer to own the hardware. I looked for colocation prices in the past but the prices where allot higher then to rent from a datacenter.

Is this really so?

Is best to buy the hardware and send it to a colocation service or to rent a specific harware.

The colocation prices are normally per Mbit, that means there is not montly GB limits, you can go as fast a the switch allows?

How can you test if you are really getting the speed, any guarantee.

Also what happens if a hard disk fails? Do you have to buy one on overnight and send it to the datacenter? They will charge you for installation i suppose.

Colocation In The UK

Jul 1, 2008

We are looking for reviews of colocation companies offering quarter racks at BlueSquare, or another data centre in the south of England. We are based in Dorset and as far as we can tell the nearest data centres are in Bournemouth (not open yet), Southampton (don't know too much about those) and Maidenhead (BlueSquare, where we currently colocate a couple of 1U servers).

Companies we have been considering are connexions4london, a1isp and netrino but we are a bit short on information about their reputations. Reliability is the single most important thing to us, we are not necessarily looking for the cheapest, but for somebody with a good history of service level.

Can anybody tell us about their experiences with any of these companies? I heard about some trouble with Netrino last year but nothing recent, and also a that a1isp use netrino, can anybody confirm or deny that? We have also spoken extensively with connexions4london but we would have to sign up for at least a year - which we would be happy to do if we knew their service was great.

I have a few questions which I'd like answered if possible.

Firstly, I understand 1U is the space in the rank etc etc -- my question is, does one server usually fill up one 1U?

What is meant by premium bandwidth? is that a type of bandwidth charge? is there any other types?

What is meant by 5mbps?

Colocation 1U For $100/mo

Oct 24, 2007

I've been noticing always that colocation seems to be much more expensive then with leased dedicated servers, especially when it comes to the A). connection size and B). transfer bandwidth given to you. So has anyone seen good colocation pricing (anywhere in the US or Canada) that has these specs? Leased dedicated servers are at these low of prices, so why not colo?

1U Server around $100 to $150 /mo: 1000-2500 GB (or unmetered) Bandwidth Transfer each month
10Mbps or 100Mbps connection (not 1Mbps).

Anyone seen any $500 to $1500 /mo. for a full cabinet with these specs:

Full Cabinet / Rack (20 Amps or 40 Amps): Unmetered Bandwidth Transfer each month
10Mbps or 100Mbps connection (not 1Mbps).

When dedicated server places like softlayer say that your server is on 10Mbps or 100Mbps, does this mean it is 10Mbps shared among many servers or is it dedicated with your server? Many colocation facilities quote prices with 1Mbps dedicated for the prices I mention above.

Colocation In AMS-IX

Jul 24, 2007

I've been using dedicated servers for past 2 years.

I'm a Usenet reseller moving to setting up Usenet Provider.

For Usenet peering with two residents in AMS-IX, I probably require a cross-connect, require at least 4u space with at least 50Mbit. All I can find is companies like and who have a "presence" there with IP transit, what exactly does that mean? If I wanted a cross-connect to an AMS-IX resident, my server(s) must also be in that datacenter, correct?

Getting Into Colocation

Feb 22, 2007

A friend of mine gave me a brand new machine he got from work. Its a medium sized desktop case, p4 2.8ghz, 1.5GB of ram, and 2x 40GB IDE Hardrives. Its not anything special, the ram is DDR and the proccessor is the old socket 478.

I am thinking about co-locating this machine. My home computer has much better parts then it so it is useless to keep at home. I already have a laptop as well as my PC so I don't need a second computer at my home either.

I have looked at some co-location prices, sent out a few emails and it looks more expensive then getting a dedicated server from the company. I thought co-location was cheaper then a dedicated server, but it seems like I am finding different.

This server is going to be used to host a few websites of mine, as well as be used to host a gameserver or two. I don't have a problem being a system administrator, I am currently managing my VPS as well as my friends dedicated server.

New To Colocation

May 3, 2007

I am hosting a commercial website that is consuming about 1.5Mbp/s of bandwidth on a monthly basis (95th. %). The site consists of (6) 1U Dell servers. I am currently seeking a colo provider in the downtown NYC area where I can rent a 1/4 rack. I am looking for a very reputable provider, but don't necessarily need the "gold standard" in colo providers as cost is definitely a factor.

My questions are as follows:

1. What is the general range of pricing that I should expect for a 1/4 rack at say 2Mbp/s of bandwidth? I have been getting quotes from around $500 to $1000, but wansn't sure exactly how to evaluate them.

2. Do I need to purchase a rack-mount keyboard/monitor drawer, or does the colo facility usually provide a cart or similar?

3. Is is better in the long run for me to provide my own firewall/vpn solution or is this something that the colo facility would typically provide for me?

4. With regard to DNS, is this normally a colo provided service or am I better off using a 3rd. party service. If the latter, any recommendations?

5. Any recommendations for quality colo providers in the downtown NYC area?

UK Colocation

Mar 16, 2007

I currently have Dedicated servers here and there with different companies but one of my sites is out growing its current setup and is growing at a rapid rate so its going to get expensive to run if i just have multiple dedicated servers so I have started to look into colocation.

The down side to colocation for me or from what I have seen is Limited Support compared to dedicated support.

However I do pay a company that will help me with the upkeep of my servers and will advise me on what I need so really now im looking at prices.

To start with I will be looking to host:


Dell PowerEdge 1850 1u
2x Xeon 3.4hz 1m cache
2gb Ram (2x 1gb dimms)
2x 146gb U320 hot swap drives
CD Drive
Floppy Drive
2x Gigabit Ethernet

**Anyone have a price on a server same spec as above?**

Now I would prefer to find someone who provides the following but if not then could point me in the right direction to purchase:

(Hardware must be able to handle atleast 8 servers of the above spec as I see me expanding to this within 6 months to 1 year)

Remote Reboot

**Anyone have a price on the hardware above? must handle atleast 8 servers**

Bandwidth - 100mbit

I would say I would like around 2,000gb bandwidth per server

So to start with that would be approx 4,000gb as I would be hosting 2 servers.


I would like to try and find a host that offers a fair amount of hardware support

I think for the moment thats about all im looking for advice / prices on.
