    Whether it be hosts based in Europe, North America, Australia, Asia etc. if they aren't able to make a decent margin on their service offerings or are overselling it will definitely affect their service performance. This is a given in any Business as well.

    With that being said do a search for the hosts you mentioned here on WHT and I'm sure you should be able to pull up some customer reviews based on their service experience.

    Companies that sell below cost tend to be very short lived. If you don't mind moving hosts two or three times a year and religiously keep backups offsite for when your host disappears, it might be worth it to you for the money you save. However bad service and downtime tend to be correlated with hosts that underprice their services.

    Thats a prejudice.
    I looked myself for a new dedicated server in germany first ( Yes i'm German ) but then decided to chose another location because of some reasons ^.~ . And i was surprised about the high prices of other than german companys. But it seems to be normal here.

    It's a fact that the Hardware costs are extrem low nowadays.
    Especially Hetzner is very popular in Germany and you can't say they have a bad support or much downtimes ...
    ( And only by the way the company was founded in 1997 )

    With the others i had no experience but also heard nothing bad.

    I would suggest you wait until there is a special with setup fees 100% off or something like that and then test it yourself for one month =). Often there are no minimum contract periods.

    Not sure where you are coming up with that... while ram, motherboards, CPU's and hard drives are certainly progressing within the realm of computing, it's actually out pacing itself like always. For a provider it's all about being able to "invest" in a technology and have it be somewhat in demand for longer then the current 3 - 6 month amortization period. So my point is, it may appear "cheap" to you, but what is cheap today will not be profitable in the slightest in a very short period of time in this industry.

    I wasn't saying the services or the servers they use are cheap. Just commenting on the overall outlook in the industry on hardware pricing. Good luck and let us know how it goes with whichever provider you choose.

    You mention one of the cheaper low-budget providers, other providers have a more expensive network and therefore cannot offer it at the same low rates.
