    I wonder why you need such a powerful CPU with so little RAM and Diskspace.

    Got it as a custom offer. No special need.

    Not even a company name? Me being Dutch it's always nice to explore new hosts that are based in this country.

    This looks like a good deal. Ram is pretty decent but would be better with more as the CPU there is powerful.

    1. The price you pay per month, does hardly cover 50% of the power usage of that server.
    RED FLAG #1

    2. WD Caviar RE4 WD5003ABYX without a raid controller or raid array is a very bad drive selection. Raid edition drives have a TLER (Time Limited Error Recovery), this is the primary feature of a raid edition disk. In practice, this means that such a drive will try to recover any error encountered for a few seconds and if it fails, it passes that task to the raid controller. No raid controller, no raid array but using a RE4 disk means problems in the future. Standard disks onboard controllers try to recover errors for 30-40 seconds.
    The provider that offered you this, does obviously not know much about hardware.
    RED FLAG #2

    3.
    It makes financially no sense for a dedicated service provider to offer 4GB memory instead of 8GB memory with this specific mainboard and CPU
    RED FLAG #3

    ---
    Warning!
    We found out that a 'group' of resellers move from provider to provider. Using different business names, they build up a sort of pyramid scheme and end up defrauding both their customers as well as their dedicated server provider.
    Beware!
    This might be fraud or it might not be fraud. - but there are some red flags in the posting that i can connect with the aforementioned fraudulent group of resellers.

    Interesting advice you give there.
    What about the Raid Edition disk that is offered stand alone without a raid controller? should he not worry about data integrity and uptime?
