We're hosting a bunch of ASP.NET applications (about 100-150) with MS SQL 2005 Express. To handle this we need a pretty powerful machine, so we chose
1&1 Windows Server III - it has 2 GB of RAM and Pentium 4 3.06 GHz Hyper-Threaded. We don't care about any other parameters like traffic or HDD size. We're paying $189/month.
But 1&1 support sucks and now we want to find a better alternative.
Based on the info from this forum, we've shortlisted two hostings:
- Server Matrix (similar configuration: $199/month)
- LiquidWeb (similar configuration: $239/month)
It sounds like LiquidWeb has a better support with their guaranted 2hrs hardware replacement.
