    Support is OK not great but ok. Network is OK not great but OK.

    Server is misconfigured when you get it so plan on stripping it of software and doing it all yourself. Make sure you specify the HD setup they have not a clue how to do it for a web server.

    Bottom line is you better know what you are doing and how to set a server up from scratch and be willing to do it yourself.

    Question what is right partioning ?

    so what is the right partioning for a Linux server with Redhat 7.3?
    I am software developer but have no clue how to administrate Linux. So I would like to hear some detailed specs. about it before I go for a dedicated server with unitedcolo.

    Thanks in advance

    Then do not go with UCG you need someone that can hand you a working server fully secured and ready for hosting and is willing to hold your hand thru it.

    I think UCG is good if you plan on using the server for yourself, not others. From what I've heard they have a pretty good network, although their knowledge or at least willingness is not the best when they setup your server. Be prepared to have to "clean" it up a bit, other than that I'd say they are a pretty good choice with it being Internap bandwidth and all - Yes, I'm aware that sometimes Cogent gets mixed in there, don't know why but it does.

    This is what I wanna do also
    Just to use for one site, it will be beta till I am sure what I am doing and everything goes according to my business plan then I can move to a managed server when time comes.
    I already have a redhat 7.3 installed on my local machine and like playing with it but I need some customer feedback now.
    Thanks for help

    I was very suprised at how good the support is for the price. I locked myself out of my server by enabling too strict a firewall and had to send them several emails to instruct them. As I live in the UK I did'nt want to phone.

    They replied to every one of my emails quickly and followed my instructions to the letter. I have also requested 2 reboots by email which were actioned in minutes.

    You can't ask for much more than that for $49

    Not to speculate, but perhaps they have nearly all incoming bandwidth over internap, and all outgoing over Cogent? This should make all pings/traces go over the preferred provider .

    Since when was Williams part of Internap? Since when was Williams listed on United.Colo? All I've received from united.colo has been crap, and this just adds to it. 200k/sec "Internap" that uses Williams and Cogent...what is this sh**? Some kind of InternapXP?

    Oh wait. United.colo happens to use a Williams network map for their InternapXP connection. United.colo = lies, lies, and more lies.

    More to rant: I don't mind paying 49.95 a month for a fast Williams/Cogent combination, but I DO care about paying for 49.95 for Internap and receiving a slow-ass InternapXP combo. United.colo needs to come clean. Most of their current customers will probably find 50 dollars for a dedicated server very inexpensive and will stick to it as long as they get what is advertised, even if it isn't Internap, but the key point is that they need to advertise what we actually receive.

    While other companies still charge as much as $5.00 / 1GB of restricted bandwidth, United.Colo customers enjoy an abundance supply of non-throttle and fully burstable OC-192 bandwidth from Tier 1 global networks starting at a radically low price of just $0.08 / 1GB.
    Well theres one thing on their site i cant find anywhere else , not even adding up the 10mbit servers

    They are good for what you are paying. $49 / month..I got no complain except it is pain in a butt to clean and install all the softwares. takes time but much better than share hosting stuffs.

    * United.Colo Rocks!

    I just got my server. They said 4 days, I had it in 4 days. Disk is partitioned exactly as I asked. Ping time is 172ms - from Australia

    Oh, and no problems at all with disk DMA - it was already working fine.

    For $49 per month, that's damn good value.

    (Dances happy dance of happiness.)

    Has anyone purchased the VA Linux server with the Pentium 4 2GHz? Is it any good?
