Suggestion for cheap dedicated server with 512MB memory?
I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a very cheap dedicated solution, with 512MB of ram. Although 256MB Ram can do, since you can use swap memory on dedicated solutions right?
CPU speed doesn't matter, so even a 500MHz will do. Disk space also doesn't really matter, 10GB will do.
Also if anyone knows a cheap VPS host with 512MB ram then its ok too, but since you can't have swap memory in OpenVZ virtualisation 512MB memory is a must.
I know people using
Hosting and Designs Services and some are happy some are not.. But for the price of a VPS it is hard not to give it try.
Their lowest price server no cpanel:
1,500 GB budget bandwidth
Memory: 512 MB RAM
Hard Drive: 40 GB IDE
IP Addresses: 5
99.9% SLA Guarantee
(Managed & monitored)
Full root access
24 hour setup
$5 setup | $40 per month
Hmm I think that is bit more than I actually need, don't really need the 1.5GHz and 40GB HDD, I'm looking for the price of around $20-30 range, 256MB Ram is ok for dedicated. I think VPS probably will suit me better, however for a VPS I will need 512MB since I can't allocate swap memory.

Not true. With Xen-based VPS you can have swap and each VPS runs its own kernel. Many Virtuozzo/OpenVZ based VPS also gives you "burstable" memory so you'll have a bit more to play with.

VPS Hosting Offers Forum you will find something in your budget and needs.
http://vpsland.com/ should be in your budget. They were a pretty good host to me.
For a cheap dedicated box, you may want to check out
I wouldn't expect much from them though at those prices.
You can't beat linode.com for a vps. They just upped their memory..bigvps is another good one too.
If you don't need it urgently, and know how to run the box, you could check out
www.corenetworks.net . I assume they will get more of their $25 servers in stock. I've had one since Feb, and had no problems, and would far exceed your needs. It's unmanaged, though their support has been very helpful for what I needed.
