    Looking for dedi is Australia

    I am looking for a dedicated server in Australia.
    I don't need fancy specs at all, 2-4GB RAM, 500GB Storage(SATA works fine), and 500GB+ BW, and a Xeon CPU. I dont want an Atom, at all.
    My budget is $30-40.
    Any offers?

    You're not going to get a server in AU for that price I'm afraid.

    your kidding right?

    you can get a budget server from serversaustralia.com.au for about $400 and that has the storage space and the bandwidth that you need.

    there are cheaper providers, such as exigent.com.au (where its $99 for a server, you will have to pay more for the storage space you need), but you really gotta read alot of reviews first. Im not making a comment about this guy, as I havent tried him.


    Hosting in australia, really is expensive. there are several australian hosting providers that sell "australian hosting" yet their servers are in the US.

    You're not even going to get those specs in America for $20-40. The cheapest Xeon processors is $69 at Burst.NET and that's on sale. I got an Intel Xeon E230-V3 with 8GB RAM and 250GB HDD for $79 a month in New York on a premium network and even that is pushing it as it was a sale price.

    Australia you're looking at anywhere from $200 - $400. It's like $10 a GB of bandwidth in Australia or so I hear.

    Hi Matt

    Thanks for recommending us and certainly the reviews are of the customers who haven't been happy but this is probably due to some of the outages that have occurred because of the unwanted attention of DDoS attacks and I can say that we have actually seen a decrease in these attacks recently as we have started to remove gaming servers from our network.

    But if I can say that we have well over 5,000 customers globally hosted across 3 of our data centres and a 4th data centre coming online in January here in Australia, we must be doing something right?

    Sure, we probably don't have a lot of previous customers who might like our terms and conditions because they probably didn't read our terms and conditions when they signed up so it's only than that it wouldn't suit them. Terms and Conditions are in place to protect not just the business but also the customers as well and we are a very open company that lives on hearing feedback from our customers and also in saying this, we have changed a lot of our terms and conditions that we updated in April this year.

    I'll just add that anyone can be quick to jump up and down when something can go wrong but when things go right or something is fixed, it can all be quiet and nothing good can be said. It doesn't help when things like this can happen but we'll be as transparent as possible. We got nothing to hide and we'll happily provide any information that is needed to answer questions for anyone.

    Only a month ago, we invited our customers in Sydney to come along to a open night that we had in our Sydney Equinix data centre to have a look behind the scenes of our operating, have a drink with us in the boardroom and some food. It's not heard of that this kind of thing happens here in Australia and that most ISP's are known just to be kept behind a computer & phone. We want to make ourselves more known to our customers and we invite them along to view behind the scenes at anytime.

    This year, we invested very very heavily in infrastructure upgrades and not just our servers but also our network where we now have a full BGP network across all of our sites and this includes at least a minimum of 2 IP transit providers and 1 peering provider at each site. Next year, we're set to have 3 (possibly 4) IP transit services in our Sydney data centre and 3 peering providers. Our Melbourne data centre is also undergoing upgrades at the beginning of next year with adding a second peering provider to our Melbourne network and in the second half of next year, our Brisbane data centre will have the same changes done there.

    Our 4th data centre which will be our Perth location will be online in January/February next year and we will also have 2 IP transit services here and 1 peering provider there.

    Of course as each of our sites grow, so does the requirements from our vendors (more servers and bigger transit links).

    We've been around since 2009 and we're growing rapidly everyday with a large influx of new customers coming on board all the time. We're certainly not everyones cup of tea but we do what we can (like any business does) to help and assist with those that would like to use our services and we'll continue to strive on providing the best service we can for them.

    Hope this is able to clarify anything that we can help clarify for those wanting to know more about us

    That budget would be lucky to get you a VPS on an AU server.

    Last time I seriously looked for an AU server, the BEST I came up with was $140 with 100G of data! (and that was a pretty weak server as well)

    If your budget is that low, then you would be lucky to get Shared hosting on an AU server.

    Not at all... we actually have virtual servers for the price that the customer is looking for. Certainly not dedicated servers and I don't think dedicated servers with any provider would ever come down to these prices.

    The pricing in Australia is definitely higher than other countries for things like hardware & IP transit but it's starting to improve and this is exactly what we here at Exigent like to do here... pass on the best price possible for our customers. If we get better pricing from our vendors, we pass this onto our customers.
