Hi guys, I only ever pop in here when I need something! So sorry for the lack of contributions.
We are currently looking for a dedicated LINUX box from a company in the UK. Costs are very important as we are pretty new to dedicated servers (previous experience with hosting is purely reseller accounts).
We would need it to run either Red Hat itself or Fedora Core 3 / 4.
Would rather have transfer restrictions than a fixed pipe although an indication of how fast the pipe is likely to be is important.
The ability to remote in, install software and preferably some form of control panel to administer domains etc would be ideal.
Any recommendations or offers greatly received, currently Fasthosts are favourite based purely on cost but we have first hand experience of dealing with them!!!
What sort of budget do you have ? Is it under or over £100 ?
Just asking because Rackspace sorted us out for just over £100 a month and if your looking at something around that cost then there a good choice.
Under £100 then maybe somewhere like donhost.co.uk or dedicated-servers.co.uk (who I think have now moved into the same site as webfusion now pipex has taken host europe over). They were pretty good service/network wize and cheap when they were dedicated-servers.co.uk and owned by host europe - also if you talked to them over the phone they would drop the setup fee without any pushing really. However I dont know how being owned by pipex now has affected them. I would have though they would still be highly negotiable because they have only just taken over the company and I assume they want new customers.
The problem with the Fasthosts servers is the very limited size of the "pipe" (much less than just about anyone else offers!). CPanel would be a good bet as far as control panels (though it does add to the cost of course). There are plenty of UK folk who can do you a server under 100 quid, but you won't get much in the way of management for that.
Check out the dedicated offers area.

Windows & Linux hosting and fully managed dedicated servers with great customer service!
UK-based but serving the world...
Your best choice of provider will vary depending on the amount of management you will require. Do you plan on running the server 100% yourself (ie no help from provider on how to admin it/set it up) or will you require some server management?
