    After super cheap Windows dedicated

    I am after a super cheap windows dedicated server, can even be a 400Mhz Mhz minimum.

    My only requirements are that it has some sort of VNC/Remote Desktop access and a high speed connection. (ideally in the UK).

    I have a windows application coded in VB that I want to run on a 24/7 basis, which basically checks a site every second. I'd need VNC to access this though.

    I dont need it to be managed etc... just something that I can run this program on over VNC/Remote Desktop, and probably back some of my files up onto it. Doesnt even need a domain, just an IP would do.

    Anyone know where I can get such a thing for a very low price? I dont want a PC in someones uni dorm, but something in a datacenter.

    I doubt you'll find any datacentre that stock 400 MHz servers...but you never know

    400Mhz was just an example, if there were really cheap 2.8Ghz I'd go for it. I just want something really cheap to get this application running on

    Yeah, Nocster just lowered Windows pricing today and has some awesome deals on low-end servers, they're probably your best bet for Windows servers at that spec & price range.

    They don't offer Windows on their website (just the Windows logo, it's not an OS choice though )...

    Yeah, I saw someone on here say that if you email them though you can get them to install it. No idea.

    I think it was sirius

    That may be correct. It's not going to be that cheap most likely, they're not a Microsoft Certified Partner. Certified partners get cheap monthly licenses, while others have to buy full licenses at almost retail price.
