    Did you check the dedicated hosting offers here in WHT? There are many offers here in advertising forum which can help you choose based on your budget price.

    I currently use hivelocity.net and they have a very strong network worldwide. I use it for game servers, and a few UK users connect every once and a while, and get around 150 ping. I live in AZ and get about 60 ping to their Florida DC, that isn't the greatest, but it's not bad for an East coaster DC. And if your needing this for websites 60-150 isn't bad.

    What exactly is the server for anyway. I'm guessing shared hosting maybe?

    I would be happy with 10 tb but will work with 5000 gb if I have too.. The ad forums doesn't give me customer feedback of their service..

    You'll be adding at least 100ms to page loads, and probably around 160ms average for users in the USA if you host in the UK. If your customers are USA based, get a server in the USA for best performance. The US market is also a bit more price competitive (and you won't have to pay VAT, assuming you're UK based).

    At 100mbit you're looking at a max of around 34TB bandwidth in or outbound (if you max it 24/7), most services use mostly outbound traffic. And if you're like most customers with your bandwidth graph looking like peaks and valleys you'll only get about 7-15TB out of 100mbit without hitting the speed limits of 100mbit during peak time. You should nail down whether you need 5TB (5,000GB approx) or 50TB, there is a big cost difference and for the latter you definitely want a gigabit port. Your budget is far too low for a decent provider with enterprise hardware (hot swap, IPMI/KVM, hardware RAID, ECC RAM, etc) with 30TB let alone 50TB.

    RAID 5/10 are typically for 4 drives or more. RAID 1 (mirroring) is probably what you want for 2 drives, however 4x 500GB drives in RAID 10 will give you the same amount of space as 2x 1TB drives in RAID 1 (approx 960GB) but much better performance will be had from the RAID 10 array, thanks to the RAID 0 aspect (and more spindles).

    Very few customers on this forum. Mostly providers. Also they aren't allowed to advertise their services except in the hosting offers section. See the stickys/announcements in this forum.

    Lets talk about his server.

    Dual/Quad Core = possible within his budget
    RAM 4-8GB = possible within his budget
    HDD 2 X 1/1.5TB = possible within his budget
    RAID 5 or 10 (IMPOSSIBLE - Do you even know what raid 5 or 10 runs on?)
    Connection at 100Mbit = possible within his budget
    (Max transfer is 34TB/month at max 100% which is impossible)
    so wanting 5000GB - 50TB of Bandwidth is kinda impossible.

    It's the same thing as having $100,000 in your bank account and $1,000,000 in your bank account. Adding and subtracting 1 of the ZERO from the equation is HUGE.

    Example
    1Gbit Port = $100
    1Mbit Port = $20
    (This is purely an example... not real pricing)

    HUGE difference in price. You totally need to know what you're actually wanting before you could go around asking. If not, nobody will be able to help you or anything.

    To tell you the truth, when you 1st said you wanted Raid 5/10 and only specified 2 Drives, I had in my mind that you're someone who would just like to chase the trend or something like that. Not knowing where you're looking at/from and don't even know what you're actually needing. That's the truth of what went in my mind when you stated that.

    If 85% of your customers are in the USA, you should really try to stick with a US host. If you look at the studies that google has done, they've found that latency differences in the area of 50-100ms can make a big impact on customer behavior, which is why their graphics loaded as CSS sprites and their pages are so minimalistic.

    Your budget is reasonable if you'd be happy with 10TB of transfer. I'd strongly recommend either RAID-1 or RAID-10 - I don't trust RAID-5 for high capacity disks.

    That's definitely doable with 10TB. As others have said, check the offer forums and when you find someone you like, do some research on them or ask about them on here.

    I will have to stick with other and point you towards the ad forums where there are several providers that are willing to work with a client.

    Yes I think you have a few specs you n eed to clarify in what you are looking for but I think with your budget you should be able to find something that will work. Check the ad forums or even just pick a few of the dedicated server providers that get talked about in this forum and contact them directly for a quote. Nice way to see what kind of response you get from the different companies. You judge alot with their speed of reply and the type of reply you get. Might help narrow your list pretty fast or even allow a company to stand out in front of your expectations.

    Best of Luck
