I was looking for a REALLY cheap server to used as a backup server. I don't mind the spec at all, something like Pen 2 with 20G HDD is good enough. The cheapest I've found is ServerPronto's $29.95 servers (with $70 setup fee). It's a good deal, but I wish they could halve the spec and bandwidth and halve the price
There used to be alot of them back when Nocster had them, but now they are all gone. I am just curious where are those PII, PIII servers are now (physically). I hope they haven't been dumped because I think there's still a martket for them.
Originally posted by burstdan Keep in mind that, regardless of server specs and bandwidth, there are still fixed costs associated with supplying a server (AC, power, staffing, etc.) so there is definitely a bottom-line price.
However the benefit with most of the "older" hardware is that the equipment is already paid for or extremely cheap in some cases. That helps bring the bottom-line down a bit

I took a look at ServerPronto's website. The $29.95 server comes with 200 GB/mo Bandwidth but they only offer you 1 reboot per month. Their website says "Additional reboots: $29/ea. " That could get costly really quick.
