    Looking for a good dedicated server company

    Currently we are hosted with Hivelocity and have recently experiences some issues with them. I am looking for a dedicated server company with 24/7 support a phone line would be preferred. Some key points Im looking for are

    • Cheap Servers
    • Upgradable Servers
    • Good Administrators who know what they are doing
    • Good Tech Support
    • Could be Managed or Unman aged
    • Friendly staff
    • Family Feel
    • Low DOWNTIME !! is a must


    I am looking for a server with around a 150GB Hardrive, 1GB ram, and 1500GB bandwidth.

    Any suggestions please post them.

    Check the offers forums and look for a company with an established history and then search the forums and read reviews on them.

    What sort of issues have you experienced at HIV that would make you want to leave?

    Hi Dustin,
    I think you should also mention what OS you are looking for (Linux / Windows), and what your budget is for the server?

    Also, as Ryan mentioned, it might be worthwhile checking out the adverts on the forums, and then using those to compare against each other.

    All the best.

    As mentioned above, you may want to check the dedicated server offers forum here:

    http://www.webhostingtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=36

    Do you have a set budget and know what type of processing power you need? Both would be helpful for recommendations. Are your visitors regionalized (ie. mainly from the UK or something like that) -- if so it may make sense to pick a hosting company in or near the region of your visitors.

    The only thing that may make the price high(er) is if you really want a 150GB HD (The only 150GB HDs are Raptors). For that budget you will easily find a dual core AMD/Intel with 1-2GB ram and 160GB+ HD space.
