Please help me with finding the best VPS/dedicated server.


Hi. I'm looking for the best VPS server, but it's most important that it should have ping to lockerz.com site about 1 - 3ms, not higher. Could you please recommend me something? The price should be up to $70 per month. It can be also dedicate server which doesnt cost more than $100/month. However, I prefer VPS server.
Thank you! Server should be located in USA cuz I think that it will have the least ping.

1-3ms? I doubt you will ever get results like this even if you park your vps right next to the target server and plug it in directly.

I don't see why not. But it'll have to be in the same datacentre, of course.

Looks like Amazon EC2 host Lockerz. Google Amazon EC2, since I can't post links yet.

I guess the server is located in Seattle. So I'd like to know where can I find server in the same location.

Anyone using Softlayer Washington D.C. should be more than acceptable --

Yes, but I see that is LINUX, and I need Windows... VPS server.

Yup. That's why I said that any company in the SL WDC location would be acceptable

You can get dedicated servers with them running Server 2008 Standard for as low as $140-150/month or a Cloud Computing instance for about $110-120/month.

Obviously, the best solution for you is to get a VPS from Amazon EC2 - the same "datacenter" that lockerz.com is using.

Pinging from an Amazon EC2 virtual server instance:
Quote:
ping -c 100 -i 0.2 -q lockerz.com
PING lockerz.com (75.101.168.10) 56(84) bytes of data.

--- lockerz.com ping statistics ---
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 19798ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.495/0.750/6.019/0.611 ms
Voila! Ping <1ms.

In fact, you can even get a Windows VPS for free:
1) Amazon EC2 micro instances are free for a year (an excellent freebie promo by Amazon) = 610MBytes of RAM, Linux OS
2) use vLite to create a TinyXP installation of Windows XP (provided you've got a Windows XP license, of course) - this would use 70-85 Mbytes of RAM
3) install Sun VirtualBox (free software) from a command line on your micro instance
4) install the created tiny version of Windows XP inside that VirtualBox
5) Bingo. You've got a free Windows VPS with >400Mbytes of free RAM.

The above is not a theoretical exercise, I know someone who implemented this :-). It works quite well.
