    100 Dollar Budget

    I have a 100 Dollar Budgest and I have been looking around for the past few days. I probably wont be able to purchase a server until December comes around but I was hoping that you guys could send me in the right direction.

    My budget is 100 dollars I could probably go a bit more.

    Here is what im looking for.

    OS: Gentoo
    Disk Space: 120 - 200gb
    BW: Unmetered
    Managed or Unmanaged

    I will have a few websites running so maybe a cpanel to go with it.

    Game Servers will be ran on it from time to time.

    IRC must be allowed.

    Shoutcast Must be allowed.

    Streaming Videos and Music is probably the bigest of my concerns. But I am looking for a place that could offer me all of these features.

    Gameservers will lag horrible with them being hosted on a webserver, and vice versa.

    My websites wont be hogging up any bandwidth as they will be only for personal use and storage. Probably around 10,000 Page views monthly totaling around 2gigs bandwidth.

    ah, so like iroffers?

    What kinda gameservers you looking todo?

    FDC gives a lot of BW for a good price, but it's only a sempron 2400+ so it might not do for your CPU.

    I would strongly urge you to check out www.colo4jax.com. They provide Gentoo as we have a few machines running that there. They also provide DA, which, unlike Cpanel, is not a source hog. So, you may want to go that route.

    You might want to up your budget to run game servers if you want anything powerful enough and on a well pinging network.

    Also as said before, not a good idea to run web hosting with game servers...it can cause lags in the server when too many people access your site. Especially when your planning on running streaming as well.

    I don't know anyone who offers good unmetered servers for under $100 though...good luck on that..

    Good luck with getting all of those requirements filled...... I'd said your best bet would be the AMD 1400+ from PixelFXSolutions....

    You could get:
    AMD 1400+
    1 GB RAM
    200 GB Hard Drive
    cPanel/WHM/Fantastico
    Unmetered Transfer
    100 Mbit Port

    for $119/month +$89 onetime fee (for the hard drive upgrade from 80GB to 200GB).

    Here is the link:
