    Dedicated servers (UK only)

    I am moving into the market for offering dedicated servers and wondered if anyone in the UK would be interested in the following dedicated server:

    149.99/month
    1U system with advanced cooling system.
    1.13Ghz P3
    512MB RAM (upgradeable to 1GB)
    40GB hard drive
    Plesk 30 Domains control panel or Plain redhat.
    50GB/transfer/month (extra is 2.5/GB/month)
    100Mb/sec switched port.
    Free reboots
    4 IPs

    If you are, then please e-mail me at the following address: [email protected] and I will see what I can do to accomodate your needs.

    These offers are not currently on the website as it is under reconstruction.

    Hello
    We do something similar for 99
    and can't sell them for love nor money.

    The UK market demand is for servers at the 80 mark with 5GB
    bandwidth and then 10 to 20 per GB for overage.

    I tried to break that mould but it simply did not work
    no matter how much I spent on marketing.

    I think the problem is that most Uk dedicateds are used for single site hosting plus if you look through the internet magazines the price point seems to be 80 so you need to do a lot of convincing to get people to spend the extra.

    These are meant as helpful comments.
    Reduce it ti 80 with 5GB and watch them fly out the door.
    I wish you luck.

    Hi Gordon,

    Those comments are most definitely appreciated. Thank you for your opinions on the matter. I will see what effect those pricings and options have on potential customers.

    Is there any call for dual cpus with scsi or raid drive systems these days?

    Hi
    Amazingly we sell more high end machines than low end (2:1)

    I just had an order for a dual processor SCSI server for some database drivewn search site.
    Obviously its very expensive.

    We also have resellers who move to dedicated and pay above average prices for us to handle ALL the maintenance.
