    Is this a fair price? Dual Core Xeon 5130 - $304/m

    Single Processor Dual Core Xeon 5130 - 2.00GHz (Woodcrest) - 1 x 4MB cache
    4 GB FB-DIMM Registered 533/667
    Reboot / KVM over IP
    100Mbits Connection
    2TB BW
    2x 250GB SATA II
    Cpanel, WHM, Fantastico, RVskin

    $304/m


    Thank You.

    Also is this a good server to host clients and some mongrel instances?

    Not for a dual core, you can get quads for that.

    I think $260/mo is a good price for that server. Try to ask them adding one more CPU and charge $300/mo

    Hell, you could go to places like AxisHost and get managed hosting with a Quad-Core for cheaper than the price they're quoting you.

    To answer your questions directly, it is a fair price, but you could find better as hosting companies offer specials all the time. Check out the offer here:http://www.webhostingtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=45

    The server you mentioned could provide you with what you need, but you really do not mention your needs here so that is a blind guess based on the information provided.
    Good luck in your search.

    Actually this is from SoftLayer.
    The Special would remove the Cpanel WHM Fantastico RvSkin but it's not that much saving.

    I'll check the other sites you guys gave me.

    Thanks!

    Indeed, Softlayer reduced their price for me.

    Thank you

    The thing that makes it cost is the 2Gb more ram at 50$ a month..
    but i'll have a sales chat!


    Thanks!
