    Best decent priced provider?

    I am getting annoyed. I have been searching for a while now, and everyone charges either WAY TOO much for RAM, bandwidth or disk space. I'm really looking for it to average about $15 - $18 per GB of RAM.

    Quad Core CPU (i5, i7 or Xeon)
    16GB RAM
    4 x 1TB RAID 10 SATA II HDDs
    10 TB with a ~$25 upgrade to 100 Mbps
    $240 - $260

    Dual Quad Xeon CPU
    24GB RAM
    4 x 1TB RAID 10 SATA II HDDs
    30 TB on 1 Gbps
    $360 - $400

    Do you have a specific location requirement?
    Do you need managed or unmanaged server?

    BTW, getting 100Mbps dedicated bandwidth for $25 is not going to be easy to find.
    However, location may play a great pricing factor in this case.

    USA, preferably central.
    Unmanaged.

    Leaseweb was able to do what I wanted, I just need to find some reviews.

    Leaseweb is a great provider, one of largest in Europe.
    If they could fulfill your requirements, then you should go with them.

    Contact Limestone Networks and ask them for a custom quote. Their prices are pretty competitive.

    What about their American centers, as I believe I read on their site that they have a data center in the US?

    I believe I looked at them and had an issue, though I will recheck. Thank you!
    Edit:
    Their bandwidth was too costly for me. That was it.

    I have no experience with their US data center, I didn't even know they had one there.

    In all cases, I had great experience a while ago with them in their EU DC.
    You should contact them asking if they can provide a server in USA or not yet.

    All I know is, they have data centers in Netherlands and Germany.

    Do you know of any US suppliers that would be able to meet my requirements?

    SingleHop maybe?
    I guess they are around your budget.

    That was very kind, and effective of you. I am impressed.

    I just e-mailed him.

    Clint was very nice when I contacted him directly. The quote he gave me was the lowest I received from any dedicated server company, even those with sub-par networks.

    We didn't need those servers at the time so sorry I made him do all that work .

    It's a Sunday and after hours so my best guess is tomorrow morning. Unless he's like mike and likes to go though the forums and his email in his free time.

    That's the only reason I'm here. WHT is interesting .

    Clint let me know that he's checking with management. It sounds like the bandwidth and other specs are a bit higher than we usually do for the price point you're aiming at, so he's running it by management.

    Edit: Clint works *a lot*. He and I are talking about the quote right now.

    Just for reference about Leaseweb Datacentre, i think at this moment they are only accepting colocation in it but i might be wrong, nothing better then dropping them a support email.

    I have had awesome experiences with Leaseweb.
