    UK Dedicated Servers

    I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get cheap bluesquare dedicated server hosting, I currently spend 9 on shared hosting but need a server that has more than 10GB since my website is growing but since this is a personal project, I can not afford to spend much money on it.

    What exactly is your budget?

    And have you considered a VPS? That's a good half-way house, and you'd get more than 10 GB space.

    I have considered, a VPS would also be good but UK VPS is quite expensive too. I want something close to 9 as possible but keeping the quality. I know I am unlikely to get it for 9 but close would be good.

    There's no way you're going to get a dedicated server for 9 a month or near that, they're more expensive than a VPS. You'll need to aim more about 40 - 80 a month.

    yeah, sorry I meant 9 for a VPS but I basically wanted to find the very cheapest kind of Dedicated servers, sorry if I confused with that question.

    What spec VPS are you after? you probably won't get more than 256MB for that budget.

    OVH "real private server" is from 10 a month plus VAT; but the 20GB disk space is on the network, so is slow.

    For 20 a month plus VAT they offer Kimsufi server - 1GB RAM, 250GB disk, 100 mbps network.

    Bear in mind that's a single non-RAID disk, so you need to have a plan for when it fails.

    I've not used OVH, so have no idea what their service is like.

    Have you considered to get a VPS in any other EU country or in U.S. It would be less expensive. Of course if you want to get hosted in UK, you'd better search for a solution around. I'm sure that there are a number of UK web hosts that would agree to provide any form of rebate or discount. BTW: what kind of virtualization solution are you looking for?

    Maybe OpenVZ? Also yes it does have to be UK so that it is quick for people to load.

    9 for a vps is a too low budget.. You will probably get one for that price, but make sure to confirm the quality of hardware and the webhosting company that offers you a vps for that price. Also a non-cpanel vps will lower the budget in this case.

    If raising the budget is something that you are concerened of, then I would suggest to go for shared hosting or reseller hosting in this case.

    Good luck with your search though..!
