What's the best way to search for dedicated hosting
Well, we are medium web company using in-house cloud hosting for our sites
There's one forum we own which requires dedicated server and it's a problem to find a good one) My admin always used to find a good one in terms of specs and price, but the recent ones were not good for our visitors (low speed).
Now i took that in my hands and searching on my own.
I have contacted a few hosters requesting for my spec price and 100mb test file. I'll suggest my visitors to test speed for those which are ok in terms of specs/price and make my decision.
The question is - where do i look for hosting companies? It should be US med/large hosting company with unmanaged ubuntu servers.
Anyone has got a list?
Just a word of caution I would suggest at a minimum you go with HW RAID for your setup it's worth it from a performance point as your looking to go dedicated for both performance and storage size I'm guessing.
Some time ago I visited site, not forum but something like list of hosting providers with clients feedback for each company. On this site was list of most popular companies...
Unfortunately, I don't remember now url of this site. But you could be confident - such resources are exist. I will make a search in my browser history, and if I will find this site, I will put its url here.
