    1and1 sales tactics?

    I have just browsed through 1and1 and was looking to purchase a low end server to toy with but apparently they do not accept international orders.

    Kind of weird, why would they accept only US/CAD resident's payment?

    Less chances of fraud. For example AVS only works for US and Canada.

    It's nothing new. Godaddy for a while blocks Asian IPs from buying domains. That's why I stopped using them.

    Ultraunix, time to change your signature

    In terms of 1 and 1, it's not for fraud ... they're a German company ... but like amexmue said its pricing

    OK, how bout this signature?

    That's not good, thought of toying with it. I need a speedy and stable server, support wise isn't much an issue, any idea?

    15minuteservers looks good though.

    A celeron, 512mb ram and 20GB HD.

    RAM is more important than anything else. Best if it's 1GB
