look' 4 > Quad i7/8GB/100MB link/ 100GB bkup @ 49


hi. I am currently hosted with hetzner in DE. Those are my dedicated box specs:
http://www.hetzner.de/hosting/produkte_rootserver/eq4

CentOS5, Plesk, in Europe.

Their interface is pretty confusing, and I'd like to move elsewhere.

I've visited more than 20 providers so far and did not find anything better.

Do you know any reputable provider that offers similar or better dedicated boxes at similar prices ?

I can't live with less memory and processor, I've always hosted on CentOS, don't require cpanel (open to any panel), and prefer a datacenter in Europe.

I won't take the risk of hosting with newbies and start-ups. I'd only host with stable data centers that have been around for many years.

Any recommendations ?

You may want to try leaseweb or OVH for such specs and pricing.

Only OVH in France comes to my mind with those prices and specs...

Thank you Wizz for your kind comment.

OVH, am reluctant to host in France as their laws, as I heard but am not certain of, are pretty severe (you know, like closing your site if a member on your forum posted a link to an illegal download)

Correct me please if I am wrong.

leaseweb, I' ve had a bad experience with them in the past where I signed up for something and they billed me for something that cost 3 times more. I had to fight with them to get my money back.

.. and you shot down the only 2 players (well 3, considering you'd object to dedibox.fr for the same reasons) competing with Hetzner at that price, so...

Take some time and figure out the interface, since that seems to be your only gripe with Hetzner?

As far as I know, they do not sell any servers to other countries. You have to live in France to get the server from them.

Correct me if I am wrong

Just a little note on you asking for 100GB backup: I would recommend keeping a backup separate from your provider. If your data is important enough, you shouldn't ever trust a single provider to keep the sole copy of it.

Off-site, separate provider backups are the way to go.

The Hetzner robot is not too bad, it is different and takes a little getting used too but I find it hard to believe that would be the only reason for leaving.. How often do you need it?

I think the best answer I can give you is (OVH excluded) you simply wont find a dedicated server as stable as Hetzner in Europe at the same price.

I have a low end dedi box with them and its been running for 2 years now with no downtime.

If your budget can shift slightly you could try contacting quick web to see what budget boxes they may have available, racksrv.com have some good dedi deals on now too if UK is an option.

Thank you much for this reply.

Quick Web ? this ?
http://quickweb.co.nz/de-dedicated-servers.html

if that is what you meant, then their closest match to what I have now is a dediB at $139 / month, compared to 49 am paying now with hetzner


I thank you for recommending racksrv.com
Their offers are interesting
http://www.racksrv.com/dedicated-servers

I think the closest match is the dedi 3, which is 99.99

When you add direct admin and CentOS, plus the VAT, it comes to 143 / month, which is much more than what I am paying now.

thank you again for your efforts.

Sorry about that, I don't know what I was thinking I clean forgot about your specs with Hetzner, my fault.

€49 is just an unreasonable price.
That is one heck of an ROI timeframe for that hardware.

Agreed, Hetzner are doing a good job of de-valuing the market with silly pricing IMO!
