    For Message Board

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for details of a reasonably cheap dedicated server that will have the capacity to run a football message board and a few smaller sites.

    The message board has 2000 members, of whom 100 post regularly. It is PHP Based using a mySQL database.

    The other sites will be primarily business and pleasure, maybe making use of mySQL databases.

    In terms of cash Id be looking at around 40 a month, or 500 per year. It may be that there is something slightly more expensive that would be worth it and I am open to this option.

    I do not want Shared or Virtual Hosting.

    Many Thanks,

    Kris

    You are going to struggle at that price point. Do you want a control panel as if you do your options are going to be very limited. If you could get your budget to £60/mo it would be a bit easier

    Dandy_Don, I think your budget is rather low for a dedi. Heighten it and then you'll be able to find what you need at liquidweb or servInt.

    That server, with that number of people online might creak a bit. You really want to look at a P4/AMD Athlon or higher with 1GB RAM

    Set your budget around 1800.00 US a year and then you can get a reliable box.
