I'm looking to take a dedicated server and wondering whether hosting in Eastern Europe/Ukraine/Russia/etc will offer me more for my money? I'm looking for something with about 4 CPU cores, 12GB+ RAM, RAID1+0, 500GB usable disk space, VMWare ESXi, un-managed but as with everyone, working on a budget!
I'm based in the UK with customers throughout Europe but latency is not a high-priority. Will I be able to get more for my money (vs UK/DE/DK/etc) in the "East" or does it make no difference in terms of price? Does anyone have any recommendations of companies to look at?
I suggest you to buy a server in Netherlands if you want to host your site on Europe. Netherlands has good servers with good prices and i think they are better than Russian servers in quality and price.
Cyprus is an alternative solution for you, unless you require massive bandwidth in a low budget.. Bandwidth in Cyprus is still a bit a expensive but if you don't have high requirements, a Cyprus DC can fulfill your needs....
