    US Dedicated Server Recommendation - detailed requirements

    Hi WHT'ers!

    I would like to pick your collective brains for a top notch hosting provider. Here's what I need:

    * US-based (traffic on site will be equally to US, EU, East Asia)
    * Unmanaged (but option to be managed later)
    * Quad core CPU or better
    * 8GB RAM
    * 2TB of mirrored disk (2 x 2TB RAID 1)
    * 100Mb connection with good enough QoS for some streaming (e.g. audio)
    * ~7-8TB a month of bandwidth (1.5TB up/6TB down)

    Quality is more important than price. Budget would be $200-ish/month

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!

    Thanks guys! I hadn't even thought of 100TB.eu.

    I did look at 100tb.com, but it was about $450 a month for something comparable (lots of disk). I think with 100TB.com I would mostly be paying extra for the bandwidth. It's a great deal if you need it, but I won't need more than about 8% of that.

    If you have any suggestions for a US hoster, please let me know.

    If you agree on the long term contract with certain web hosting company - you will get a chance to get that server at the price you are asking.
    But only chance.

    GigeNet has been doing some high bandwidth deals lately, you might want to give them a shout.
