Title: Managed Dedicated Server - Alex23? IT guys?
Post by: G_Thang on February 04, 2011, 08:30:43 AM
Which company offers the best package with managed hardware and software included?  We're just interested in dealing with our installed software.   The reviews are all bogus...just company reps posting 4-5 star ratings and web masters with hidden affiliate links.

Looking for basic Linux or Windows, no less than 2GB Ram, monthly server maintenance plan included, would like to stay in the 150$ range if possible.  

Thanks.

Is this just for a single server? If you have 3+ you may as well look into co-location. Find a company that offers 1/2 cabinets.

For a single managed server Tezing is a great company:

so you want to rent a server? IMO just hook up your own and stick it in the IT closet/room.

no one talked about .5 cabinets.  i'll check into that.

one server for now but could expand.  quickly.  dont want to deal with server issues oFf the bat...so managed will work to start out.  - HT

If you plan to expand a 1/2 - full cabinet is the way to go, much cheaper in the long run.

Are you looking to be hosted within Canada or US?

US but my developer forwarded us to 1 or 2 providers in Europe...just didnt find what we were looking for.  we will expand.

If by chance your hosting porn send the servers to Canada!

US has put in too many restriction on the industry so they are moving north

Considering they ask $150 / month for the services alone, G_Thang seems to expect the server itself to be free. Reasonable request for sure...  ::)  :D

dummy....i spoke to them about their management package...given they have the specs so i could forward them to other providers.   so....it makes sense to keep their management specs in mind or on MS one note.  

aways trying  to prove you found something out on getdumb when there was nothing to find in the 1st place.

WHY THE FUCK would i type it out?  

Thanks.

Anyway...i thank you (all) for the info, was able to find a fully managed soln for about 150$.  it's a bit short on the bandwidth but workable since it's fully managed.

that's about the same specs which i found with a more "well known" provider...not much difference. 

i'm assuming you are hosting your store with it.

with the 47$ for management...price is equal.  i'd need to read real customer reviews on their reliability.

I host 4 stores and 10 content management sites with the service.  I'm about to more to a reseller service so I can have dedicated ips for each site.  But yea, the price and specs are going to be universal and equal at this point.


You can also check with my previous service Brinkster as they may be able to offer a better price.  The only downside is that its more for a seasoned webmaster
