  • UK dedicated server for £29/month

    I've noticed 1&1 have lowered their dedicated servers considerably. Their cheapest is a dedicated server at £29/month. Anyone using them for dedicated server solutions?

    I left their shared hosting as it was too restricitve, and their support was very poor in my experience.

    If you found their support to be very poor maybe you have answered your question already yourself?

      had a quick look, but at £29 a month you only get 10gb of bandwidth, and its £5 a GB for any more. If you are at the stage where you feel you need a dedicated server then is 10gb really going to be enough?

        I'm not at the stage of needing a dedicated server yet, but as the price appears to be fixed at the discounted rate of £29/month as a special offer it seemed like a good opportunity. My current hosts are charging £200/month for a similar package.

        As you say Walter, I was not very impressed with their service and support on their shared plans, so support on their unmanaged root server is probably going to be even worse!

          Your current hosts dedicated server prices are well out of date

          There are a lot of people complaining about long delays and poor communication with 1&1 in the UK internet news groups at the moment. A few people have also posted comments on WebHostingTalk.com about them as well.

            £29/month for a dedicated box?

            I wouldnt even use them for my backup dns servers!
            Keep in mind, most of the time u'll get what u pay for...

            £5 a GB for any more is totally crazy..

              Stay way! hmm... I wonder when people are going to learn that quality hosting doesn't come cheap. Read the small print...
