    Need recommendation for a low-end server asap

    Hi guys, I am new to the server scene - I had a server with giga-international but was not satisfied with their speed so I ended up canceling 2 months back, and switched my site to shared hosting. But now I am running out of resources and need to go back to dedicated...

    Location does not matter for me - I need maybe 10GB HD or less, my site is mainly a CMS Portal (SMF + 3rd party addons), additionally hosting couple hundred images. I am not sure how much resource I am going to be needing, but 500-1000GB bandwidth will be more than enough for me.

    I am not looking to spend too much money (I don't generate much income from my site) so at most looking to spend $60, the less the better. I was looking at the AlphaRed servers for $59 but after doing some search on WHT, I saw some bad reviews and now I am not sure what to go with.

    Thanks in advance for all your help!

    You can check out Server4Sale.com

    Though they are a LT/SL reseller, the free support is great when you are with a control panel (easy managed).

    Btw... do you actually need for a dedicated server? may be a vps would be a better startup. I would recommand ServInt.net if you wanna move with a vps. Excellent support.

    Why don't you try a VPS first? There are a lot of VPS providers out there well within your price range. I have a VPS with http://buyavps.com for testing some scripts I am working on from time to time. They've been great so far

    A control panel would be nice, but not necessary - and will go with Linux if it were the case..I think I found one that fits my need - will be giving out Limestone Networks a try today

    Looks like BurstNET may have some of their Valentine's specials going on.

    Whoops. Didn't see where you found someone.

    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    That may be a good suggestion, but oftentimes, you can get much more power from low-end dedicated servers than from higher-end vpses at a fraction of cost! Not that I'm against VPS, but dedicated servers seem to be a natural choice considering the power and price equilibrium. You could find plenty of powerful-enough dedicated servers here at WHT advertising forum which I find it very interesting as well for the price...

    I'd check Zipservers.com for VPS.
