    UK dedicated server recommendations

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for a UK based dedicated Linux server provider.

    Ideally I want to spend around 40-50 a month. And 123-Reg is out of the question after my terrible experience with them!

    I saw a good looking deal on the Fasthosts site for a Linux box for 49 a month. Is this a reputable server provider?

    Cheers.

    Sam

    Is it me, or did the ad seem really pixelated?

    Sam, my advice to you is to simply check out the offers forum here - there are going to be a fair few providers able to give you what you want.

    A few questions would help people reccomend companies to you, for example:

    Location in the UK? London?
    What specification server
    Bandwidth requirements

    yeah - it seems the designers was aiming for a "look" of some sort - I am not sure it works for me either

    OVH has UK branch. I have dedicated server with them. They also offer good price. But their servers are all in France. You can prove this by email OVH's sales. UK2 and midnight software have good servers at proper price.

    I've heard good things about http://RapidSwitch.com - If I was needing a UK server I'd go with them. They offer 10TB of bandwidth with each server, with good speeds worldwide (see www.speedtest.net they rank on that site as one of the fastest in Europe?).

    I've also sent them a few sales questions which have been promptly answered.

    I've had issues with the OVH french range in the past, not sure if their UK range is suffering from the same issues (experienced SEVERE international throttling).

    I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this company.

    We've been with them close to a year now with no problems.
