Where to rent the best dedicated servers?

Sorry, I really don’t know where else to ask.

I’ve been using Staminus for a while now and I’ve had it with the
downtime.

Basically I want a place to host my Ruby on Rails / Git projects, an IRC
server as well as an internet radio channel.

Simple website / control panel design is ofcourse a plus. None of that
cpanel bullshit though, I prefer to meddle around with simple text files
the way it’s meant to be done.

So, layeredtech.com? rackspace.com?

And is there a place that reviews dedicated server providers?

Thanks,
Kyrre

My buddy owns Techiemedia.com - I have multiple servers: dual core
xeon, 4gb ram, 5mb, dual sas drives, etc. Comes managed, although, I
hate other people managing my servers. If you want a great deal, send
me an email and I’ll see what I can get ya.

Nah, actually, its website design (which gives me a good idea of the
rest of the service) kinda put me off. You might want to pass the
following message on to your buddy:

“The environment in which products and services or sold often have a
greater impact on the customer than the actual products or services
themselves.” --designcouncil.org.uk

I will forward your critique on to him, which I have done already
myself lol. Then again, it’s not a web design you are getting, it’s a
dedicated server. I’ve hosted with numerous dedicated server providers
from Rackspace, to Splitfinity, OC3 and more. Techiemedia is the only
one that has been 100% reliable, quick support and having a great price.

I don’t know anything about that particular hosting company, but I’d
be careful in dismissing a hosting company based on their web site
design. We’re not talking about a consumer oriented product line, and
the presence or lack of an aesthetically pleasing web site may have no
correlation to the quality of hosting.

For dedicated servers, I’ve been pleased with cari.net - their prices
are excellent. They have had a couple of network glitches in the last
few weeks, but they seemed to have made every effort to solve the root
problem in a timely manner.

I’ve been hosting my company’s servers with Railsplayground
(www.railsplayground.com) for just about a year and a half. We’ve
been very happy with the pricing and quality of service we’ve received
in that time.

Best of luck!

Control Panel… fiddle with text files… don’t get the connection.
The fiddling with text files sounds like ssh and pico to me. Control
panel is plesk, cpanel, webmin.

So, layeredtech.com? rackspace.com?

Our company and several of my friends rent their dedicated servers
with rimuhosting.com. I recommended them after being recommended them
on this very list. You’ll find a lot of archived posts on this list
also recommending them. Their support and service is unbelievable.
They don’t specialize in RoR, but their knowledge of RoR hosting (and
anything else you want to host for that matter) is very good not to
say great. You really feel these people like what they do. They will
go a long stretch for helping you out, but in the process keep you up
to date and in a way show you the right way.

As for the control panel, they’ll preinstall either webmin (free) or
plesk (extra license cost) for you if you specify it when ordering.

After years of no downtime whatsoever, one of our servers fell victim
of an unforeseeable hardware failure on our rack. Within 2 mins
rimuhosting had already posted a message informed us about the cause,
on a very regular basis update progress was posted on their site, and
the total downtime was merely a few hours (and luckily for us, in the
middle of the night). That’s all I want in case something unexpected
happens: a no-bullshit honest problem report and a quick solution.
That said, it happened on one of several servers we have running with
them and all the others have been up and running (with excellent
throughput) for years.

Best regards

I recommend joyent.com

Excellent choice…

But so far it looks like I’ll be going for http://www.m5hosting.com.

“Small is the new big”, might wanna Google that. Besides, they look so
simple!

At cari.net, for $60/month, you’ll get 5 times the bandwidth and 3
times the disk space than the one at m5 for $89/month.

http://www.cari.net/

www.orion-hosting.co.uk offer ow cost VPS and fantastic service. It’s a
small company, so when you talk to them you’re dealing with real people
not
a corporate blob :slight_smile:
