A friend and I are going to get together on a server, in a month or two, but I figured I should start looking into possible companies, right now. I already have a list of companies I'm looking into, but I was hoping that you all could give me a few more names, so that I have a healthy pool to select from.
Budget: $80 to $140
Storage: 60G (minimum)
Transfer: Anything over or at 300G (minimum)
Redhat prefered, control panel optional. I am still debating a control panel. While I have no real need for it, my friend is not familiar with the innards of a server in any way. He'll probably need a control panel. Plesk, Cpanel, and Ensim are all just fine, I've had a little experience with all of 'em. I prefer UNmanaged.
I've been looking into LayeredTech.Com, ValueWeb.Com, Bocacom.Net. I've also been looking at ServerPronto and GlobalDC -- but that's mostly to satiate morbid curiosity.
I would prefer to stay away from ev1servers, not because of anything negative. It's simply that I already have a server there, and I'd like to have this new one with a different company.
I've been looking at these companies for a while, and watching for reviews on WHT, and all the rest of that. I'm hoping you could provide me with a few more names and/or experiences with the companies I've listed.
A good free control panel is Webmin. You should check it out. It will let you manage, apache, dns, sendmail, user accounts, ftp, etc. It is definitely worth a look. You can check it out at, http://www.webmin.com/index.html. Hope this helps
