What is the best 1U COLO DEAl ?


I am searcghing for a 1U colo deal - found that ****** is offering one for 49$ .
before i buy it -


1)i heard a loot about their customer support on the web
hosting - is it the same in the COLO dept?
2) if they're really bad - does anyone have a better idea for the
same price (or around this price )?

Tx in adv.

if they are banned, you will see ***** in their domain name that hide their real domain name

So the answer is no, the company you mentioned is not banned here (unitedcolo)

Its only a deal if it suits your needs.

Ask questions about server reboots, getting a real qualified technician to look at your server, or other services you feel you need. The more professional you are about what your doing, the higher level of support and help you will need. Also, dont pay for guarenteed responce times, etc, unless being down for more than a few minutes really hurts you financially. For $49, i doubt its your first concern.

For reference, you wouldn't hit the datacenter floor with us for $49. But, depending on what your looking for it may be exactly what you need.

Is that full a regular 1U, or a 1/2 deep 1U like a Cobalt?

If anyone wants a 1U colo for under $25/month, I would be happy to refer you to the data center that we use and to our account manager. We are VERY happy with their service and support.

In fact, they went above and beyond the call of duty several times already and I have nothing but good things to say about them.

Do you really want your servers in Estonia though? Security..network connectivity....redundancy....I don't know which company this is, I can only say if the majority of your traffic is in the US, you might save a few $$, but you're likely to lose customers/visitors/hardware (when the company decides not to do colo anymore, what are you going to do, fly to estonia to pick it up?)

Sure, our data center provider is Continental-VisiNet. Their Web address is at http://www.visi.net but they do not list their prices on their site. They are a regional ISP in Virginia with two data centers and they are owned by a very large company, Landmark Communications.

Our Account Manager is Wellesley Dombek. You can e-mail her at
wdombek@visi.net - feel free to tell her that I referred you. (I don't get any form of compensation btw, we are just very happy customers and they have been very good to us)

We have used them for nearly a year at this point and they have been great to work with. Their tech support staff is very friendly and helpful.

My only caveat is that if you need a VAST amount of bandwidth, it will be a bit more expensive than some other options. But if you are looking for a good colo home for anywhere from 1 to dozens of servers and use a fairly mainstream amount of bandwidth, it is a great solution. (at least, it has been for us)

Hope this info helps and good luck on your hunt for the right colo option for your needs!
