Managed Dedicated Server - Alex23? IT guys?
« 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.

steadfast servers - The best I have ever had - extremly good service and extremly reliable.

Apacheclips.com is hosted on the for 4 years.

Not cheap but extremly reliable and as I said the service is top notch

Depends what level of management you're looking for. More specifics please. I use them and love them.

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.

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?

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.
