Looking for the Cheapest server around


Well I've been looking for what I can only describe as a dirt cheap Dedicated Server. I only need it for hosting a couple of IRC bots and a few web pages that

won't get much traffic (and it has to be windows). I know a VPS might be a better option, but it's been a pain to find one that allows IRC, so i figured I might

as well step up a bit and go ahead with a dedicated for a few more dollars (however if you can find an inexpensive VPS that allows IRC, I'd be happy to go with

that too). Does anyone have a recommendations? I've been looking at corenetworks and so far it looks like the best deal around.

Have you checked out FDCServers? If you're only shopping based on price and allowed IRC bots, I'd check them out. They allow IRC last time I checked.

Unfortunately, corenetworks still has a better plan (I'd link to it but I have to have five posts):

Intel 2.6GHz Processor
512MB RAM
80GB Hard Drive
1,000 GB Transfer
Remote Power access

All for only $24.99/mo, with the option to install your own OS (which is quite handy), and two IP addresses.

You get a full dedicated server for $24.99/mo? That seems way too good to be true....

Last I checked, corenetworks wasn't accepting new orders?

It's not. CN has a good rep here, too.

I'm willing to wait if I can't find a better deal, this isn't extremely time sensitive. That's one of the main reasons I'm asking here, to see if there is a similarly priced alternative.

I've actually used one, and although they're only on a 10mbit line, they are very much a full dedicated server. I don't know how they do it, but they do.

CoreNetworks hasn't accepted new orders for at least 6-7 months now, FYI.

I've had a server there since November and those guys are great, but I don't think the quantities are exactly unlimited at those prices.
