    Question Server Recomendation


    I am looking for a server for under $80 a month. I've been looking at the entry level servers from layeredtech and they look decent.

    Preferably I'd like something that is closer to $50 or $60 than closer to $100.

    The server will probably have a few sites on it, and all together it would defiantely use less than 50 gig a month, out of the 1,000gigs of b/w most dedis have.

    So I figured a low end dedicated server would give pretty good load speeds if the server as very low server load.

    What do you think? What servers specs would you recomend? What port speeds? What specific hosts?

    Thanks for anyone who can help.

    A dedicated server for the price range your asking is going to be...well, you won't find it.

    You need VPS or Shared. Even "low-end" dedicated servers run ~$79.99+. Add a control panel (if you want) and the price is closer to (if not over) $100.

    Good luck.

    LayeredTech is a good choice however remembe they are Unmanaged, and when I say that I mean quite literally you will only get the very basics such as hardware issues and reboots.

    I have had a couple of servers through them and except from some initial configuration issues, everything has been fine with them.

    How hard do you think it would be to moved from shared hosting to unmanaged?

    What is involved?

    Pretty hard , you should think about increasing your budget to cover $30/mo for a managed service company to manage the box for you. Also keep in mind the extra cost of the control panel interface.

    Getting a server $30 less than your budget, then hiring a outsourced management company (many around $30) which will offer unlimited system admin time, quick ticket support, etc, will give you the feel of shared hosting (uptime, speed, performance) on a dedicated server environment.
