Hi all. I'm looking for a server which can easily run mAdserve (www.madserve.com)
They recommend https://www.softlayer.com, but I wanted to get some more opinions before making a commitment. If anyone has any experience with hosting/setting up mAdserve, I would really appreciate your feedback.
This is my first time getting a dedicated server. I am looking for a fairly basic setup as I learn how to use the software. So I reckon a single processor, 2GB of RAM, Linux with cPanel, decent amount of storage and bandwidth. Also needs to have this (but I imagine it's standard stuff):
PHP Version 5.3 or above with MySQL support.
PHP SimpleXML Extension
PHP cURL Extension OR fsocket suppport
PHP mbstring extension
Most basic setup at softlayer.com comes up to around $150/month. Honestly, it's a little steep for me. I would happy to settle for $100/month.
Very different. You need a management company to keep it up to date, secure and perform your software install requirements. You will also need a control panel license, so add $25-$35 on top of the server for a cPanel/WHM license.
