    Where can I find a good rack server icon?

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to find a good rack server icon to put in my hosting design. I've looked in so many places - sxc, deviantArt, iconfinder, iconarchive, etc.

    None of them seem good, and most icons are of tower servers.

    Any suggestions on where I can find a good stock photo?

    As unfortunate as this sounds - you'd probably be best either making it yourself or paying an icon designer to make one for you... - I dont think ive ever seen what you're looking for.

    Are you looking for only free solutions or are you willing to pay if needed?

    I'm willing to pay, and I do like some images found at iStockPhoto.com - however I'm not willing to pay $18 for however many credits they are offering for a 1 credit image.

    Most of the images on istockphoto cost between 1 and 5 credits for the small/midsize versions. You don't need the biggest image for a web site.

    Edit - Sorry I misunderstood what you were saying. I can get your image on my istockphoto account if you want and you just send me the exact amount.

    I would also recommend istockphoto.com - unfortunately you are required to pay up front for about 12 credits minimum, but if you're regularly looking for artwork/images you will almost certainly find them very handy.

    Try http://weloveicons.com/ there may be something there for you, or alternatively, as mentioned before, I recommend iStockphoto too.

    Don't have five posts yet so I can't post a direct link, but try searching for "webdedsignerdepot" on google or facebook. I noticed an icon pack that looked to contain a few images that could come in useful on a hosting template such as padlocks and upload/download arrows. I'm not sure whether it'll contain what you want, but it could come in useful later down the line.

    Yeah, it is a blog. However, they sometimes offer free resources for designs. Don't rule it out just becuase the website is not 100% devoted to icons; I never said it was a perfect solution for the thread anyway.

    Direct link here, I now have the required 5 posts.

    Turns out that it does not contain a rack mounted icon, but as I said in my previous post it contains various images which could prove to be useful in a web hosting environment, like the shopping cart.
