I have a small project that I am going to be doing for a client and I am in the need for a small linux (centos) vps, 128mb (would like to have a burstable amount too) ram.
Storage really isnt a issue, dont need more than a couple GB's. Looking to find something around $15 USD. I would prefer the location to be in Japan, but I am pretty much open to anywhere in East Asia.
I have been looking for a VPS on the east coast (near New York). I am looking to spend around $30, but I need 500GB or more of bandwidth. It would be very preferable for the host to allow IRC connections. I have found a couple hosts that fulfill both of these, but at the moment VPS Empire is looking the best. They allow IRC for an extra $2 a month, which is very reasonable.
I would like to see if you guys have any other recommendations or suggestions for me.
After two and a half years I am upgrading my server that hosts my CS server. Unfortunately, my host will not allow me to upgrade it and keep the special I got from them those years ago.
So I am looking for colocation on the east coast (I have players from Belgium and surrounding areas) with the following:
1U Server Colocation 750-1000GB a month (yes I have used that much in a month though usually only 400GB) 10 or 100 Mbps burstable 2 amps 3-5 IPs
I am hoping I can find this for >$100. Are my requirements too high for this price point? I may consider other areas of the US if my europe players can get good pings. My current host is located at 56 Marietta in Georgia.
I bought a reseller off them a wile back and it went fine fr the first week. by the second week he had suspeneded my one of my clients accounts for being an adult site (which the admin new upon me getting the reseller that a few were) ok so after that i had to get rid of all my adult clients 3 20 dollar packages a month lost. Then came all the down time.
Im telling you there servers were ddos'd more times than a hooker smokes crack.
I attemped to complain once and they supended my account for a week. It just got worse and worse from there. one of my sites (personal sites) is freedom-munger) a site similer to myspace or facebook etc. every time id send out a newsletter to my clients they would email me chewing my 455 saying that im spamming from there servers.
a few weaks later fdc unplugs the server my reseller is on because another of there clients has a photo of an underaged girl on there site.
So naturally i asked for a refund after being yanked around on them restoring my reseller on another server.
To say the last they were about as mouthy and unprofessional as a person could be and yanked me around and to allmost 2 years later no refund.
To take it down to there level of speaking (THESE GUYS ARE CHUMPS)
I am really not sure if the location is effecting to speed. I am chooing a provider for colo'ing few servers. I know each region has very good providers (in both services and network, from reviews on WHT), but - from the west coast to central, the latency difference is around 30 - 40ms - from the central to the east coast, the latency difference is around 30ms
so, if I go with a provider in west coast, it really saves me 60-70ms latency from my area. However, someone likes gnax in east coast using Route Science, that's advertised to help to get the better routes.
I dont see any in west coast using RS or FCP. So, should I go - with a "normal" provider (I mean network without RS or FCP equipments) in west coast, - or with a provider with RS/FCP in any place?
I'm working with an NGO and we have sites dedicated to companies in Afghanistan and East Timor -- need to reach people inside those, and neighboring, countries. We have our headquarters in North America and donors scattered around the world.
Have been trying to identify good providers in Asia, but am finding very little. In an ideal world we'd have servers in N. America and Hong Kong or Singapore (or India?).
am i asking for too much? everyone seems to only offer 1 or 2TB bandwidth but i'm hovering right around 1.5TB a month at my current location so i need a bit more for growth.
i run a non-profit gaming website and our budget is somewhat tight. we've been in a speakeasy datacenter for over 7 years and the only reason we're moving is because we outgrew the small server we were blessed with for so many years.
Ive recently been getting blips on my private lan with SL and have been unable to get it resolved.
Everything from firewall configs (despite its not being changed in 6 months) to the fibre being dirty and switch flapping has been blamed so being in this position and going in circles for 24 hours means I'm considering alternatives.
The issue would be so bad but the issue is on the 16 core box used for the DB and it uses the iSCSI which means the data is enjoying itself getting corrupted. It wouldnt be so bad if after I'm told its fixed, repair the DB it happens all over again.
So bascially this is what I need elsewhere
1x 4 Core Harpertown 4GB and 500GB in Raid 10 1x 4 Core Clovertown 4GB and 250GB in Raid 5 3x 4 Core Clovertown 4GB and single disk 1x Opteron Dual Core 2GB and single disk 1x 15 Core Tigerton 16GB and 250GB in Raid 10 or iSCSI
Bandwidth around 10TB a month
Id need a private lan and really I would rather a 1GB port on the private side.
To get away from the problems im having I would also rather a dedicated switch as to avoid the kind of issues im having now
if having servers on the East coast vs the West coast would give significantly better speeds for those people accessing sites from Europe?
We have servers in Texas and someone trying to sell us on a CDN (content delivery network) showed us numbers where it was taking 4-5x longer for someone from Europe to download a file. We want our sites to be faster for Europeans so I was wondering if moving to the East coast would help.
