I'm looking for cloud hosting (or cheap dedicated) hosting in Guangdong, China. Not looking to host a website (so no need for an ICP license), just needed for low latency calls to a third party API with servers located there.
Would be preferable if the servers where in datacenter that got network access / peered directly with China Telecom (again for the lowest possible latency).
I have tried ordering a server through sinoservers.com however they are havn't provisioned the server (a "cloud" server) and they are totally unresponsive to emails, support tickets and even through there listed skype contact. So right now they appear to be non-existent or hopeless.
Any ideas or anyone know of other companies offering hosting in Guangdong that my google fu has not been strong enough to find.
Why not just get a Hong Kong server that has direct China Telecom uplinks.
CNSERVERS.COM Portland, Oregon since 2005 Fully DDoS Protected BGP Network - Hardware Based Automatic Network and Application Level Protection
IP Transit / Colocation / DDOS-Protected Server / High Bandwidth Server
Portland, OR / Seattle, WA / Los Angeles, LA / Frankfurt, Germany
No one will have "direct peering" unless they advertise it specifically.
Rackspace and any american brand will almost definitely NOT have it.
They will all backhaul to the USA and peer off with CT and CU from LA or SJ.

In china are there two kind of connections, 1 with permission of the party and a commercial one. On both situations there is a higher latency because the monitoring of connections itself. Hong Kong (isn't China) could be an alternative, otherwise China telecom is your best option
You mentioned that you had an order with Sinoservers and they were not responsive afterwards. Do you have a ticket number or order number for me to follow up? Sinoservers is a company of our group and I can follow up with the manager about this.
You can use local city of china for the hosting but almost all websites server is in USA and if you want more dedicate service there are alot of website which are offering the hosting like 'weebly.com' the website will provide you content and theme as well and maybe you will get which you need. Best of luck.
