    Looking to add Dedicated Servers

    Hi-

    I'm looking to add Dedicated Servers to our line of services. As of right now, this is being planned to be implemented within the next few months, but I want to seek some counsel from those who currently sell dedicated servers. I'm basically looking for some answers to these questions:

    1. Pricing- How do you formulate this?

    2. Mangement Plan- What sort of management do you offer? Semi, full, or none at all?

    3. Problems- What are the most common problems that occur?

    4. Support- How is support provided for dedicated servers?

    5. Vendors/Suppliers- How do you go about providing dedicated servers? Do you resell them or some other plan?

    Thank you in advance. If you need any clarification on what I'm asking, I'd be more than happy to elaborate.

    Regards,
    Waylon

    Then you just need to find a provider that offers a reseller program.

    www.ServerMatrix.com
    www.GNAX.com
    www.FastServers.net
    www.dinix.com

    Have some good programs.

    With SM you won't get a huge discount, but with GNAX, Fast Servers and Dinix, you have potential to have up to 20% discounts on the servers (and in some cases even more.)

    Gnax won't got over 20%, and to get there you must have a lot of servers there...

    They wont go over 20% (GNAX) but they start you off, with 0 servers, at 10%. And once you've resold 20 servers, you get 20% off all servers.

    Right, but also read through some of the recent threads about Nocster. They're struggling a bit, so be prepared to hear from a lot of angry clients.

    Thanks for the input so far, and I have heard negative things as of late about Nocster, and had not planned on seriously considering them in the first place.

    Although I am still hoping people will answer my questions...
