    Dedicated Windows Server Help

    Hi,

    Im after a dedicated server with windows and MS SQL installed on it! Everywhere I look they Im looking at $300+ per month! I remember finding somewhere that was $100 per month, and you purchased the MS SQL license (around the $600). Does anyone know of where I can find a cheap windows dedicated server with MS SQL? Email me please....

    Check out http://bocacom.net. They have very affordable Windows servers with MySQL from $179 a month. Their support and service is awesome as well.

    MSSQL isn't cheap, and is hard to find legally. The reason is the Microsoft SPLA, it is more of a rental than a purchase, that $600 (and that is WAY cheap) is not valid for hosting anyway.

    cerebro, why are you using mssql as opposed to mysql?

    If you are looking for dedicated servers, perhaps you may find more answers in the dedicated servers forum?

    I've spoken to Bocacom before and that $179 server does not in clude the cpu version of SQL Server that you can use legally for hosting customer sites.

    For this they quote an extra $170 per month.

    Properly licensed MS SQL is not cheap - you won't find a server with a legally licensed version of MS SQL form much under $300 it just can't be done.
