Hi

I am looking for a dedicated server for my image hosting website since it was suspended for excessive bandwith drinking.

I'm very happy with my host right now - even though they suspended that account.

They are suggesting that I upgrade to a dedicated server that

offering:

From My host

>
> P4 2.4ghz Processor
> 512mb RAM
> 80gb IDE Hard Drive
> 800 GB Bandwidth
>
> For $179.95/mo, $0.00 Setup
>
>
> P4 2.8ghz Processor
> 512mb RAM
> 80gb IDE Hard Drive
> 800 GB Bandwidth
>
> For $199.95/mo. $0.00 Setup

I am aiming at $120 - $145.

Do you know of a better alternative with great email support?

To me great email support is a support reponse in 30 mins to 3 hours.

Thanks!

I am in a similar conundrum and got a similar offer from my host. The offer also included 8 IP addresses and CPanel.

I am looking at German providers, wher you can get 1 IP address with your first package for 39 euros!

There are a few dedicated providers that are cheap, but I think you're best going with a "mainstream" one rather than purely the cheapest you can find - generally it costs them to provide good quality servers/networks. An expensive host that happens to have a good deal on would probably be the best comprimise.

but as for support - with a dedicated server its really up to you to run it as its your server not theirs, but most providers will normally set them up with a default config that shouldn't need much changing, and its not hard to find out how to do the common things on google (or failing that, here :D)

But if all you need is more bandwidth, you might find it easier just to find a web host that gives more bandwidth rather than a dedicate server - it depends exactly how much bandwidth you need.

[EDIT]I'm not overly sure about the advertising rules, so I removed the mention of the provider just in case[/EDIT]
