You can just ask specific questions on this message board, that's what it's for after all
But do your homework first, don't ask questions like "What's the best dedicated server provider?" and such.
There are a few questions you should have answers to, so that good advice can be given.
Three of possible questions in no special order of priority:
1) what's your budget?
2) do you need a fully managed server or you can manage it on your own/will hire an admin?
3) what type site/sites you will be running? This will help find a provider that has servers that will satisfy your needs as fas as hardware specs go, etc. For example, if you will be running a game server, the list of possible providers will be smaller, as response times are very important in running game servers.
Originally posted by zero0ne well i was only planning on using the search to find other solutions to east coast dedicated servers/co-location
but searching these forums i found quite a few good ones that ill prolly go with...
originally i wouldve gone with dedicatednow, but i really dont like how their website is like a bait-and-switch tactic saying that its so and so a month... but thats only if you prepay for a year...
to me thats bad marketing...
but thats just my .02cents on that company....
We don't offer pre-payment discounts, or annual contracts, are you sure you're thinking of us? I really tried to be as straight forward with DedicatedNOW when developing it, and keeping it that way. The only thing I can think of, is that we offer servers with and without setup fees, equating to a higher/lower monthly payment depending on your choice of payment, but that's about it.
I AM sooo sorry dedicatednow....!!! i got the websites messed up it is um let me check the link again www.superbservers.com thats the one i meant....
actually now that i re-checked your site, i rememebr which one yours is now its the one i couldnt figure out how to get to the order form.... lol (i figured it out after a bit though)
Sorry for the mix-up completely my fault for not double checking...
and i have to say... your post was very professional and NOT rude, that is really appreciated... especially since there are those out there that would reply with a "sorry, your wrong" or some sarcastic/rude reply.
thougt id ask this for future reference, does dedicatednow offer custom jobs?
Thank you for clearing that up for me Chris, I appreciate your clearing this up for myself and anyone else. For the question about "custom jobs" DedicatedNOW is specific to the servers and services offered on the website, as buying bulk quantities was the way we were able to sustain lower costs. Our sister company Pegasus is able to provide you with custom servers though. If you'd like to e-mail me off-forum, I'd be happy to discuss with you.
