    wtd: UK based Dedicated/colo

    hi.

    I'm looking for a dedicated server based in the uk

    preferrably 512mb
    40/60gb hard disk
    AT LEAST 400gb bandwidth (burstable as i have streaming audio sites that need to handle demand at peak times) it doesnt have to be premium bandwidth either.
    linux redhat
    looking for quotes with/without a decent control panel (possibly cpanel)

    i need it in a week or so's time

    alternatively any co-location details that meet specs may be considered and i provide a server

    post up what you have.


    Many thanks

    sorry if this is in the wrong area.

    i was moving between here and web hosting requests and accidentally posted in here rather than there...

    if a mod sees this could you please move it to the appropriate place


    thanks

    400GB of data-transfer in the UK is going to be alot of money

    You might want to consider getting prices on US located servers instead

    thanks for the advice...

    i do have a us server currently but due to a lot of problems (my host sucks big time ) i was keen to move the server closer to home.

    but if the bandwidth is gonna be a lot then i guess its still best to host in the u.s.

    in which case does anyone from the u.k. co-lo in the u.s.?

    my bandwidth is the most important thing so i think its cheaper overall to buy a server and then pay monthly to colo it.

    just wondering if any one else in the uk has done this with any success??

    all comments are very much appreciated

    unless you have a pet tech near the dc then any repairs or hands on work could cost you big bucks. it would really be better to rent and leave the host with the responsibility of maintaining the hardware. Its cheap enough to rent still. As mentioned uk bandwidth at 400GB a month would set you back a serious amount of cash.
    if you wish to persue that try

    theyre fairly cheap , not used them myself, nor do i work for them, just one of my bookmarks. theres plenty of us hosts though that will provide a quality service at less money.

    You're probably better off getting a server from Rackshack.net and then get CPanel installed on it. The total cost would be about $190/month, or about $340/month if you want it managed, with $1 setup fee (as long as you get it before the end of the month). The prices are in regards to the HP P4 2.0GHz servers that they have now.
