I'm looking at acquiring a new dedicated machine to host my web/mail/DNS and various other side programming projects. I'm looking for a machine with the following specifications. I'm perfectly willing to lean on the low end of this scale. I'm mostly looking for an opinion between these three providers: EV1, Server Beach, and The Planet. Suggestions are welcome though
. The suggested provider should be willing to allow IRC client
traffic and not do any non-sensical filtering (e.g., no port 119 UDP).
- ~1.3-2.8 GHz system (P4/AMD/Celeron/Whatever)
- 512-1000 MB RAM
- 40 - 120 GB HD
- 1000 - 2000 GB Bandwidth
- FreeBSD 5.x
Remember, I'm looking for [mainly] an opinion between the three mentioned companies. However, I'm willing to listen to reputable suggestions. Please, no flame wars
and feel free to vote in the poll. Past experiences with the said companies is a must, no heresay.
