I'm sure there's a ton of posts like this. I'm almost blue in the face looking at all of the different dedicated hosting providers. I've read through many posts here, the specials forum, etc.
I am coming from having my own colocated server for the past 8 or so years. Unfortunately a good deal has elapsed and I need to find a decent dedicated solution.
I've gone through so many hosts, superb, servermatrix, rackspace, ait, cihosts, ev1, value, etc., looking at their offerings and trying to gather reviews. It seems everyone has had their bad experience with each that I've mentioned and many others.
I'm looking for an affordable solution, with a decent server, doesn't have to be a super computer. I want linux hosting, with a control panel and support for more than 2 ip's. Most important, I want good support and great uptime. So some company that pulls the plug on hardware or software with no notice, they are out in my books. Can someone please just give me a straightforward and clear direction to a good host? I don't have hundreds of dollars a month to spend, so I realized I am handicapped by this fact.
Thanks very much.
