New Dedicated Provider


I'm in the market for a new dedicated hosting provider. Here's what I'm using right now...

Dual Xeon 2.4 GHz w/HT
300 GB HDD (RAID-1)
2 GB RAM
Unlimited IPs
Unmetered bandwidth (20 mbps guaranteed 24/7)
Control panel: cPanel/Fantastico or DirectAdmin
OS: CentOS, Redhat, RHEL, Fedora, FreeBSD

$349/mo...

On my normal server, which is this $349/mo one I'm not using anywhere near that bandwidth or disk-space. But I'd still like to have the option in the future to accommodate that. Do you guys have any suggestions on where to go?

That price is reasonable if your server is using premium bandwidth.
BTW, Is there "unlimited IP"?

Haven't had to use the IPs yet. It's just a bit of an overkill right now for what I'm using.

Why are you looking to leave your current provider?

Do you have any geographic requirements?

Which provider are you currently with?

Have you checked out the dedicated Offers Forum?

So you are not need that much bandwidth. Switching to metered bandwidth providers who offer 1TB-2TB BW per month, you will save some bucks. Do you need Fully-Managed for your server?

That price is good even for a "value" network. 20Mbps+control panel included and a not bad Dual Xeon w/ 2x300GB RAID1 for $349 is a good deal.
How much bandwidth do you actually need?

haha, seems like everyone on my server hardly uses any. Last month we only hit around 200GB. So I'm really overpaying for what I actually need.

Rather than just leaving your current provided, have you tried contacting them for a downgrade? It would make things a whole lot easier. If they are willing to help, they could just swap your HDD into the new server. Save you time and headaches should they arise

Looks like a good price, though I would expect the price to go up a bit if you consistently sustain 20Mbit/sec....
