sign 2 yr contract & give your server?
I heard that some companies will give your the box (you own the box then) if you sign 2 yrs contract with them? Is that true?
1 year (or 6 months?)
Yes this is true. Considering the box would be paid off in less then 2-4 months and you would still pay for 2 years it is not such a great deal. You are locked in..... locked in is generally bad..
But hey you will have a 2 year old server at the end....
I think technology has levelled off a bit so that a 2 year old server will not be too far behind. Webservers nowadays rarely runout of processor power.
64 bit is only thing I putting current solutions the dust, but that kinda power is not needed to serve files.
This is a market that I am also currently exploring.
Understood but 2 years is a looonnnggg time to be stuck in one DC.. There are a few solutions available with less then one year commitments if you look around.
This is why some people date and some people get married. In the case of your server contract, read the prenupual agreement. Find out what you will get in the divorce.

hahahaa good point, Maybe that's why I have been with the same girl for 12 years and haven't married yet.. Too much fine print
Two years is a nice chunk of time. Anyone that wants to sign a contract like that is more than welcome to keep the equipment
