    Those "top hosting review sites" are posting fake reviews so they can earn affiliate credit. This is nothing new.

    What are your server specification requirements are budget? Location?

    This.

    When looking for a new server, you need to look at how stable the company is, network they are using, support, etc... last would be your price.

    What location is preferred? Do you have a control panel required/preferred? This make life easier for your end users (if any).
    Do you have any specific resource requirements at this time? Bandwidth, IPs, storage etc?

    Lastly, what is your budget parameter for this project? Other forum members may be able to suggest host for you with this information.

    I noticed you edited your post; this server should be fine, but if you're looking for some extra horsepower I'd suggest a E3-v3 series proc You may even consider RAID-10 due to the amount of sites you will be having and disk I/O may become a bottle neck, so just think about that.

    Los Angeles would be great for Australia. And your budget should allow you to pick a reputable provider. Consider RAID-10 with whom ever you choose, it'll provide you with the best performance and redundancy for your setup

    I'd check the offer section out - http://www.webhostingtalk.com/search...rchid=49003677 -- I searched "Keyword(s): los, angeles, datacenter"

    Then I'd encourage you to get in touch with these providers and see how their solution can help your business. This will also give you a rough idea on their sales response time, knowledge and overall friendliness.

    Let us know who you choose and why.
