    Dedicated server along with Dedicated support

    Hi ..

    We are looking to move from shared windows hosting to Dedicated windows hosting. This will be our first dedicated server and experience with dealing it too.

    Someone suggested me Rackspace. But they were charging premium rates 440 USD for entry level windows server.

    Can u please suggest some good dedicated server provider. My main concern is the Support coz its my first time i wont be able to managed it all of my own .

    And also please let me know what things should i consider while choosing a dedicated server

    Your inputs are welcomed

    Regards
    Suraj jain

    What kind of budget do you have? A lot of your provider choices will be determined based on what you're willing to, or can, spend per month.

    Have you looked in the dedicated server offers forum? You'll find many offers for that price range. Do some research once you've found an enticing offer ; good luck!

    Hi Surajkala,

    those specs would be no trouble at all.

    Remote management of a dedicated server would be a remote desktop.

    In a dedicated environment and based on those specs sql 2005 is no trouble to run.

    what raid feature are you thinking??

    do you want redundancy(mirrored) or just performance (striped)?

    may be : redundancy(mirrored)

    What i m looking for is : Incase something goes wrong with the HDD .. i shud have a backup in another HDD..

    With Raid you have the options of going with RAID 10, mirroring and redundancy over 4 drives.

    with your budget it will be tight to get something like that.

    more than likely mirroring will be no issue within the budget

    I totally agree and highly recommend it.

    You're not going to have a problem with a system like that - take a look in the offers forum for some ideas. Get a shortlist of providers, and contact them with any questions you have regarding support etc.

    Hi,

    I think you should be able to find a good web host for the money you are willing to pay. Just heck the Offers section. Windows web hosting is a little bit more expensive but $200 should be enough
