I guess we can scratch off all three of those providers..
- offers what I'd call "the big-daddy servers" because they have a matching price tag; certainly not what I'm in the market for. The guy I talked with on the phone was more than helpful, advising me of my options and even commenting on some good NY providers. (Thanks man!)
- has stopped doing new VPS setups at Peer1. Instead, all new setups will happen at their Colo4Dallas facility.
- appears to only offer RedHat 9/Virtuozzo VPS's.
I might [have to] stick with VoxRox at this point. I do love VoxRox and their (dedicated server) prices, but if at all possible, I'd like to get a VPS with atleast some of the qualities of VoxRox (location, connection, serial console maybe, etc).
I also thought about downgrading from my current P4 2.8, 1GB server to one of their Celeron, 512's - but their web site no longer has these value servers..? (I've e-mailed them asking about this just a moment ago..hopefully they still offer these!) Now they're all about dual-xeons exclusively, it seems.
I'm trying to cut back on my monthly spendings if I can.. (a new laptop or desktop machine for xmas would be nice
Oh, let's make Peer1 optional too.. at this point, similar pings (NYC) + lower price (VPS) still = a winner.
