    Should i buy this server?

    Hey.

    I am thinking of getting this server:

    http://www.volumedrive.com/dedicated/

    Intel Celeron D

    • Intel Celeron D 2.66 Ghz
    • 512 MB DDR2 Ram
    • 120GB SATA II HD
    • 2 IP Addresses

    Set-up Fee: $0
    Monthly Fee: From $44.95

    With CPANEL/WHM, so its about $70-80 a month.

    They are offering me 100mbit with 3000gb transfer.

    I am thinking of starting a Filehosting site with a couple of others sites. Do you think this server is good for a start? OR is the bandwidth too low?

    Also how is this company?

    Thanks.

    If your just doing file hosting and not a lot of dynamic stuff, that server should be fine.

    100mbit port? I thought volumedrive was 10Mbit unmetered?

    That server should be fine if its a brand new file hosting site, as your traffic would be low at first, you could expand as you grow.

    This is what they told me in EMAIL:

    We have two options in regards to bandwidth. Either 10 Mbps unmetered
    which would reach 3200 GB of transfer per/mo, or you can choose a 100
    Mbps shared link with 3000 GB per/mo of total transfer.

    Ahh..kk

    I'd go with the 100Mbit option..would allow you to burst if needed, as you have already picked out.

    other than that, as I said before, as long as you aren't doing any Dynamic / Database sites you should be fine.

    Different people prefer different distros.

    Cent OS 4/5 is pretty popular...any OS will do what you need it to do though.

    Thats not to bad for a start, I would get more hard disk space and at least 1gb RAM if you can afford it. Volumedrive is a good company too.
