Dedicated Server Question

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by aphexcoil, Oct 8, 2003.

  1. I need to find a good dedicated server to host a site that does about a terabyte of bandwidth a month.

    Any suggestions?
  2. I would recommend ev1 as well. Also known as

    They had a major outage a while back - We didn't even know about it until we got an email from them - the servers kept running. Have not had a single problem with them. Not something I can say for others.
  3. No haha ... I am running a club / bar review and online dating site that I plan to get up by January 1'st, 2003. I have a virtual hosting account.

    Is managing a dedicated server that much harder than using Cpanel / FTP / etc on a virtual host account?

    Also, how do I know if I need DUAL Xeon or P4 or celeron? Is there a basic guide for this somewhere?
  4. aphie, post some details or PM me some details and I could tell you. I'm sure there's some info on this on the web somewhere too.

  5. You're about 10 months late buddy :D

    rackshack's good if you can do your own server admin, I use cihost, they've been great..

    Interesting to see someone else get into dating sites...

    I started a handful of dating sites too, but I don't have the advertising budget to compete with, so they languish, check them out, I put a lot of work into them: spends more than 500k/month I think, on ads... my likely budget would be more like 1-2k, so I'm not going to try yet.

    I think the way to go is niche dating sites, eg for college students specifically, or seniors, whatever... vs the generic type.. fwiw.

    Unix, Windows, or it doesn't matter what the OS is?

    Also, are you looking for hardware, ISP, or one that provides both?
