    I would try and look at FDCServers. In my opinion and past experience server pronto lacks customer service skills.

    FDCServers is good, Burst.net seems to have improved quite a bit as well.

    I would think that it would depend on the server specs you are looking for. Could you give us some more info? You could also checkout Hivelocity, volumedrive, wholesale and Joe's they seem to have some great prices.

    I think an important question would be if you are looking for managed or unmanaged servers?

    Softlayer, The Planet, and SingleHop are good.
    http://softlayer.com/
    http://www.theplanet.com/
    http://www.singlehop.com/

    If you are looking for places with bargain servers.
    https://www.burst.net/
    http://www.cpctechnology.com/

    Actually The Planet has some bargain servers as well.

    But without any real details being provided it's difficult to direct you where you want to go. But Burst and CPC have inexpensive servers. Burst has improved since last year with the network revamp.

    thanks all, I'm just looking below $150 preferably 2GB+, decent processor speed, fdcservers look good, but are they really good in terms of customer service etc?

    For around $160 I believe you can get a dual core 2gb ram server at SoftLayer.

    I've been with them for well over a year now and they are excellent.

    Running a 32bit or 64bit OS?

    Start here on a budget
    https://www.burst.net/servers.shtml
    http://www.cpctechnology.com/?page_id=9

    They have Dual Xeon's on the cheap, but naturally those are only 32bit capable. They also both offer Pentium D's which are 32/64bit capable.

    My experiences with SoftLayer in the past have been very good. I would also recommend them.

    Very good is an under-statement... Maybe excellent++++++ would cover it but I don't know... Their service, support, and network are all top notch.

    SoftLayer stopped talking to me when I kept having them quote stuff out to me. I ended up colo as a result, they had much better pricing than SingleHop for the hardware I was wanting by the way. If that helps... Oh and they seem to have more experience and reliability.

    Hmm, I doubt their sales department all together stopped talking to you - how many quote requests did you put in?

    About six, a follow up would have been nice.

    Again, their offering was around 20% less than SingleHop. So that's still a huge plus.

    I doubt they ignored you, chances are they were waiting on you to get back to them. All of my experiences with SoftLayer (even their sales department) have been excellent.

    Laura, Chris, Mary, Patrick, Michael, all very good people

    I'm not saying they are bad, I'll just blame their CRM system of whatever flavor.

    Serious, SoftLayer if you want zero worries on your mind. The others if you want it cheap cheap cheap.

    CPC (in Colo4Dallas) about a month and a half.

    The only problem I've had so far is I was dumb enough not to send my Lantronix right away. Bad idea on my part...

    If you are a host, I'd suggest a big name datacenter like Softlayer. My experience has demonstrated that customers want to know where your servers are at and you will be judged accordingly.

    Enom is supposed to be a pretty good web host too.

    Only web host I wouldn't recommend is Godaddy.

    You've used all three?
    Please provide a domain (or more) that you've had with these three companies to show your personal experience with them.
