    I need a dedicated and fast!

    I'm sick of searching for a dedicated which suits my choice, cos most of them charge 30-40 extra bucks just for throwing cPanel in.

    My requirements are :-

    Pentium 4 (2.4 / 2.8)
    1024 MB RAM
    120 GB Space
    1500GB Bandwidth
    CentOS 4.x
    cPanel/WHM (to be FREE of charge)

    Budget : $100 or less

    I can part with an AMD processor for 20 odd bucks less, but cPanel is necessary.

    Please help me find the right solution.

    Thanks

    CPanel does cost host anywhere from $20-$50/month extra. What do you expect?

    I have seen companies like FDCserver's who do not charge anything extra for Control Panel's like cPanel.

    Unfortunately FDC does not have a server with the specs I need.

    .... because they take a hit on the licensing (or do something VERY funky).

    just because they do not make it a separate line item on your bill does not mean that the price is not bundled into your package.

    Want to check?

    Get a quote for your "free" cPanel server... then send them an email saying you are interested in this server but want to get the price without the control panel.
    If they respond with a lower price then you know the truth!

    I wouldn't say that. Why would they respond with a lower price? If its "Free" and the customer does not want it, it means they make an extra $30-$50/mo from that customer who doesnt want the license because they are charging them the same price either way. Now its bread and butter!

    For example

    Retail price of server with "Free cPanel" $150.00/mo

    Cost to host with cPanel: $100
    Net profit: $50/mo

    Cost to host without cPanel: $75
    Net profit: $75/mo

    For the customer that does want it, they pay for the license but make up for it in other ways like a setup fee, or billing for services that should be free, or billing more for addon services than another provider, etc.

    I guess some hosts would operate like that...is that what you do?
    I believed that the host would offer the same server for less without the cPanel rather than lose a sale. I'm sure you are right, that many would pocket the extra $20-25 if they thought the customer would buy either way.

    No one is getting FREE licensing from cpanel...

    Yes, its exactly what I would do....IF I advertised "Free" cPanel licenses.

    If a customer asked me how much it costs without cPanel, and I gave them a different price, I would be lying to them about a "Free" cPanel license. So in order to maintain a reputable business I would quote them the same fee with or without, (if that is what I was advertising) and walk away happy because the customer knows they are not getting lied to, and I just made an extra $25/mo I was not planning on making that day.

    But since I don't offer "Free" cPanel licenses I have nothing to worry about I guess.

    you can easily find one $99 server that fit your requirements and add $20 for cpanel.
    $119 per month is reasonable.

    Ok guys,

    I have ordered a server from SiteRollout.com

    P4 2.8Ghz
    1GB RAM
    120GB Space
    1.5TB Bandwidth
    CentOS 4.x
    cPanel/WHM + Fantastico
    100Mbps Port

    for $130/month

    Is that a good price?

  16. #16
    This is a good price. There is better pricing out there but you are not getting ripped off. You are definately paying for cPanel.
