  • Looking for a good dedicated server

    Anybody know of any places where I could get a good dedicated server at a fair price?

    It needs to be able to handle a consistantly-large load (thousands of users online at any given time), plus room for growth.

    Any ideas on server specs and providers? Any recommendations?

    As staff I can't make official recommendation - but as a personal and unofficial one I could recommend staminus.net - they seem to know what they are talking about and the users i know who are with them are quite happy about them too.

        Thanks for the link! However, it looks to me as if most of their servers are a bit lacking in power for what I need. I'm looking for either dual or quad Xeons/Opertons with at least 2 to 5GB of RAM.

          Have a look at Softlayer.com I am absolutely impressed with them.

          I have used Staminus, EV1, SM/ThePlanet. So far, Softlayer has been the best bang for the buck.

            try taking a look here if the price is something that really matters. Just click the Dedicated Plans link on that page to view there price structure. But I can't comment on how good a service they will provide. But I have a shared hosts account with them. And vBulletin 6 works fine all round and they have online help as well as a good tech support. Who i have used and there always very helpful

                          Not from my experience
                          But yes, they are better than ev1 support.


                          Oh, if you need 5gb or more RAM. Most dedi hosting accounts allow you to upgrade during purchase.

                            EV1 / The Planet are ok if you are ok with managing your own servers and you get good hardware, else their support is a bit of a mess and they dont read past messages from a ticket.

                            You can't beat them for hardware, infrastructure and tools. You can view servers as they boot, power cycle them yourself and they have the DDoS protection available.

                              Or if you can find someone who speaks german you can get stupidly cheap servers from Server 4 You.

                              https://www.server4you.de/de/d/compa...products=0,1,2

                              I mean stupidly cheap, Opteron, 1GB Ram, 2 x 80GB Raid disks for €44/month or if you pay for a year its €34 a month. It's amost sickening consider I pay £45 for my xilo box and its not even got a gig of ram.
