    networkingtech,

    I've personally had the best of experience with steadfastnetworks.com
    I get a dual xeon, 2.## with 2gigs of ram, 1TB of bandiwdth, cpanel/whm and a few hundred gigs of storage (main drive + backup) all for less than I paid at ev1 for a p4 with some addons.

    I would highly recommend taking a look into them.

    networkingtech,

    You hadn't mentioned budget, or that price was any problem at all.
    And I'm not really into "cheap" - I go for quality (even though anything I rent is for personal use).

    networkingtech,

    Quality can be affordable - it doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg, but I enjoy my level3 and savvis that I get from steadfast.

    That said there are lots of providers out there, all sorts of pricing/hardware/network quality.

    Research before choosing any specific one.

    Mods, I'm not advertising here or anything. I am just correcting the idea that we are expensive, which has been expressed here.

    I'm just wondering why you say for us that you can get something cheaper, but then are presented with the ServerMatrix pricing, which is more expensive/same price ($199 a month + $99 setup vs. $199.95 a month + $49.95 setup) you say, "wow thanks."

    Hehe I don't get the either. I've never used SteadFastNetworks, but have used SM.

    The difference I see is that SFN looks like they're willing to help you more. TP is a much larger company, so has a lot of good quality providers with a mutli gig network of 20 gbps. SFN is smaller, but still of good quality. I'd reccomend you stay away from SM, they are really bad these days, SFN could be a good alternative

    SFN is probably the one of the most recommended companies here, and I don't think I've ever seen a complaint against them. Not that Theplanet/SM is bad, but I don't think their level of support/network would compare with steadfast.

    I said wow because sever matrix offers a 100mb uplink alot cheaper than SFN.

    Our 1000GB servers on the premium network come standard with 100 mbit/sec uplink while SM charges an additional $10 for a 100 mbit/sec uplink. I don't see how SM is cheaper there either.

    You might want to take a look at iWeb.ca. Talk to them and they may offer you more than 1000GB bandwidth free of charge.

    1and1 has absolutely horrible service. Have you tried to email them about issues?

    Steadfast has a 100% uptime SLA. ServerMatrix has 99% uptime SLA.

    If you have downtime with Steadfast, a simple email with documentation will get you a credit.

    With ServerMatrix you will open a ticket with documentation, they will say "no", open another ticket and get another "no". Eventually you will give up because it's not worth the time.

    ServerMatrix seems to like saying "God did it" whenever you contact them for an SLA credit.

    I've had to take advantage of Steadfast's SLA the first month I was with them (traded the SLA credit for a 120 gig drive upgrade), since then I've never had to request any SLA credits as there has been absolutely no network downtime.

    Flawless.

    actually.. i too am in need of a dedicated server but could not find a very good one. The best thing about 1and1 is that they do not have a restrt or re-image limited .. and a good bandwidhth of 1500 GB aND 8 ips and more than 10 gb of ftp backup. ANd yes also free geotrust sll pro certificates.

    services is not an issue because i have a self managed server... so i am responsible.. dont ask them about how set up your own nameserver... ask them is your plesk wont work.. and you will get a responce in 3 days (yeah! its too slow... one problem)

    but because it is a self managed server.. we cant blame them...

    anyway.. if ou have any other server service in mind.. please suggest...
