I have client that use around 6-8 TB per month of traffic (nothing unusual really).
The issue is that, at some short hours per week (twice or less per week) - burst goes to 90 Mbit. So basicly, I need a solution, where in near future, if need it - burst can go all the way up to 130-150 Mbit when need it. Any Gbit providers I seen, they usual say like speed will be around 80mbit or so - and that makes no difference.
I did check RAPIDSWITCH, and in all aspect they ar great (nothing to complain) - but the offer they have with 10TB data, is good only unless you pass 10TB at some point.
After that, 1 TB of data is $200 or so (depens on exchange rate of $).
At the moment, 10TB of data transfer should be enough but if by some chance, it goes beyond that, it will incresse the cost alot.
Hosted content is pure FLV files, normal videos, nothing special.
My budget is in normal range, but still the less is better.
I will take any suggestion on this, or if someone can push me in some direction (company or point of contat).
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.
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 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.
Why can't we have Unlimited data on dedicated servers? People say data costs alot of money so dedicated server providers cannot offer unlimited monthly data, but why don't hosting companies lay their own underground/underwater cables coz then they cud charge what they want? Or talk to the current cable owners and see if they can get unlimited data deals.
When u think about it, when u get satellite tv, they don't say u can only watch 100 hours of tv per month, coz u can watch as much tv as u want,yet the satellite still uses data, so y is this not the same for dedi providers?
Is it actually possible to find Windows dedicated server with unlimited traffic (1Gb Pipe)and reliable 24/7 technical support? Cause I have searched and found out that if the traffic is unlimited the pipe is too small, and if the pipe is big enough traffic is limited and additional one costs a fortune.
which webhosts offers "real" unlimited shared or dedicated hosting? alot of companies say unlimited but in their terms it says they'll suspend your account if you exceed reasonable use and they don't tell you what this is.
do Dedicated Server hosting plans always allow for unlimited domains?"
It would be great if it was so, but I have NO idea if it is that way. My common sense says "of course stupid, you have the whole box for yourself", but my guts tell me I should know better before assuming it.
as of lately I've been looking for a new test server to run some software off of, and a server in the UK would be the best for my needs. Now, I know the advertising forums work great for finding offers, however, I was wondering if there were any servers cheaper than the atom servers at a2b2 for £25.
I am looking for a dedicated server to host a game server for Garry's Mod, (which can be VERY cpu intensive) I am having trouble, because my budget is limited to about $75 a month. Colocation is an option, but only if it is cheap (I have someone who will provide a server)
All I need is to host 20-40 GB of backups. I need full ssh access so I'm only interested in dedicated or vp servers. The best I could find today was celeron 1.3 ghz, 40 GB server for $27/mo. (paid quarterly).
cheapest dedicated to be used as a remote backup server. This server will be used to backup the fiels of other servers. We need this server to have raid1 or raid5 and at least 1TB of available hard disk space (we want to pay one time fee for the HDs, not monthly).
We've looked into the cheapest (server4you, serverpront) but their cheapest servers can't be customized.
As we are looking for cheapest solutions we are going to have a copy of this backup on another (cheap) DC. So we need 2 cheap places.
I currently have godaddy dedicated server and the 100mbps connection is shared with other servers, and I pay about $120 a month. I normally get an average of 30mbps out of it. Do you guys know of any cheap hosting companies that offer dedicated servers with a 1Gbps shared connection? And the main point I'm trying to get to is, do you guys know of any web hosts that would be faster than an average of 30mbps, even if they're only 100mbps shared connections? I'd really appreciate any potential hosts you guys can direct me to that are pretty fast.
I thought I would write a quick review of Corenetworks.net!
I've had a server at Core networks for about a year now, and have worked with support as well as billing.
Support Lets start off with the most important thing, support. I am not one to need hand-holding from support, but every once and a while I need things like IP-KVM access, hardware upgrades, hardware replacements, etc. I've put in four requests for IP-KVM access via their ticketing system since I started hosting there, and each request was fulfilled within 30 minutes. I have to admit that 30 minutes is impressive for a dedicated hosting company. It must be remembered that they are unmanaged hosting, and managed hosting services cost extra. I find this scenario fits most technical people well because more resources are put into *real* requests such as hardware, kvm, etc instead of resources being used for hand-holding (i lost my root password, my apache process is not starting, etc)
Hardware The price compared to the hardware you get is exceptional. A lot of hosting company's out there will push overused hardware on you. (some larger companies reuse hard drives over and over, check the smart drive lifetime with smartctl) The hard drive I was provided had a usage time of 3 months. That is VERY good compared to the average active drive life time at other hosting providers of 2-4 years. The hardware has been reliable and fault free (i have 2 machines now with no problems)
Uptime This is the greatest part, every other budge dedicated hosting provider i've been with has had horrible power (sometimes reboots every few days, and the occasional downtime of a few hours) I have not had a single power outage or reboot since I first started at core networks! One of my severs has an uptime of 355 Days.
Network The network is not blazing fast... with the package I got. I decided on the metered 3Mb connection (no extra cost) There is also an unmetered connection with a bandwidth limit, if anyone can chime in on this it would be great . I do know that I have always had a 3Mb full pipe on this plan (up and down) which is more then enough for my hosting purposes.
Features Core networks has all of the features of the big-boys: Remote power management, bandwidth mrtg graphs, network status page, Free IP-KVM, etc.
Cost The company does utilize it's cheaper servers as a bargaining tool for sales. It seems they unleash their $24/mo servers for a week or two to drive sales and then mark them as sold out. Currently I have the $49/mo servers (with a bit extra oomph) and I am ecstatic with the price. If you can catch the $24/mo servers, get them when you see'em!
Overall Overall I would recommend corenetworks.net to anyone who is seeking a quality server for personal use or small business use. I am not sure how the service would meet enterprise level businesses, but they do have more expensive plans and I see no reason those would suck.
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 .......
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
