    Looking to purchase a dedicated server from Aplus.net

    Hi,

    I have a custom built online ordering application, that I would like to use for testing purposes only. Do you think aplus.net would be a good option? I heard a lot of bad reviews about them, and I'm skeptical about signing up with them? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

    If you have heard a lot of bad reviews about them, not sure why you're looking into them. However with that being said I would recommend you looking at the Dedicated Offers forum, there are some reputable providers such as SoftLayer, ThePlanet, DedicatedNow, Atjeu, LiquidWeb, Wired Tree etc.

    * Theres cheaper options available.

    For testing purposes you may do better with a VPS.

    I would recommend checking out either FDC Servers or BurstNET for either a VPS, or a low-end server.

    I don't have direct experience with Volume Drive, but they are one of the cheaper, established providers.

    For testing purposes grab a P4 or ATOM server from an established provider. Cheaper rarely better. You can find tons of offers and reviews here.

    The reason why i was looking into them, is just because i wanted something cheap and running quick, then when my web app has been completed, I would want to switch to a better preforming sever. I was actually looking into hostgator, I used them before and had very good experience, but the monthly price is out of my budget.

    My budget is $100.00/Mo. Are those website you mentioned will be suited for my budget? Thanks!

    if u r ok with unmanaged u will find core2duo or even quad core in that price just look in dedicated offers section... btw webnx has a new offer and its very tempting and i have seen many good reviews bout them...
    if u are ok with european host u can have hetzner in that price with core i7 and 8gb ram with setup fee or athlon without setup fee...
    u can find managed VPS with 1-2 gb ram in that price...
