Need a cheap dedicated server that DOESN'T SUCK


Howdy, I was managing a dedicated server for someone using 1&1 for some time and he let me host my own things on there as well, but just recently he's decided to shut down the server so I need to find somewhere else. I'd like to find out what else is available, here are my requirements:

High-bandwidth and throughput (most important)
TOS Policy that doesn't forbid IRC or BitTorrent
Serial console access would be preferred
Physical reset remotely would also be preferred
Bootable recovery environment would be awesome as well.

My budget is around $75 a month, although lower is better. Again, bandwidth and throughput are the two biggest concerns of mine.

CPU and Ram aren't that important to me, I'd prefer to have at least 512mb but could live with as low as 128mb if needed.

The OS doesn't matter, if it runs Linux I'll just run the Depenguinator on it and load FreeBSD, if it already has FreeBSD so much the better. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Nick

Heh, well I've heard horror stories of places like Server Pronto. I was very pleased with 1&1, but like I said, I'd like to see what else is available.

What about VPS servers? My only real concern is bandwidth.

You won't be able to host irc on a vps, if you wanted look into IRC hosting and get a server from someone. I'm not sure how much bandwidth you need but you have a look at http://www.powervps.com/cpanel-vps.php to see if it fits your needs.

If you expect/want good uptime, stability and support you may want to invest decent funds into your server. If you want dirt cheap services, you will more then likely end up right back here within a few months complaining. Good luck, and make your choice wisely.

Maybe you should try hetzner.de.
For 39 EUR you get 1 TB Traffic, IRC is not forbidden, only Port 6667 is blocked. They also have a good recovery console and automatic reboot interface. Only the serial console is missing. Their support speaks english and is very awesome
