    Looking for server in UK

    Hi,

    a client of mine is looking for a server that MUST be based in the UK running Windows Server.

    It should be a month to month basis contract (not a 12 month contract) and ideally unlimited bandwidth.

    Intel CPU 2.4GHz+
    2GB RAM
    500GB HDD

    Anyone know of any hosts that do this?

    Price range: < 80

    support must also be great.
    Thank-you

    You won't really find many if any 'unlimited' bandwidth deals from reputable providers as unlimited is general a gimmick.

    You'll find plenty of decent providers with more than ample bandwidth allowances for most uses within your budget though!

    well what about as close to unlimited as possible (1TB)? Can you provide some providers names/websites?

    RackSRV's a good choice for starters. I've used them before, great network & uptime.

    1TB isn't much. Generally most UK providers give 1 - 3TB of bandwidth, but there is the odd one which will provide less or even more.

    Just to throw some names in the works -

    UK2
    PoundHost
    RedStation
    RapidSwitch

    Have you checked the offers section? http://www.webhostingtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=36

    Most companies charge 10/month for Windows Web Edition 2008, and the hardware that you have specified should be readily available in the UK for 70/month. In fact, you should be able to get two hard drives in (mostly likely software) RAID for that price.

    There are several companies that offer unlimited bandwidth, usually with conditions in their T&Cs. If you don't really need unlimited bandwidth, I'd recommend quality over quantity and choose a company that offer high limits, and have a good reputation for fast Internet connectivity.

    I agree with you there. Really we are talking about 1TB/month to be honest - that would be more than sufficient.

    But to find such companies based in the UK for that price range is tricky - i obviously dont know which companies exist hence why I am here

    I am not going to recommend specific competitors however Tom's made some good suggestions.

    For something this spec with just 2GB Ram, http://www.rapidswitch.com/ we use to use a while back and they still stock 2GB Ram servers, they were quite good when we used them.

    1TB is very little these days, you'll easily get more than that within your budget.
