Hi x-perts,

I am looking for a new dedicated server and would appreciate to get a few recommendations. The basic config i am looking for is somewhat like:

quad core 2.33; 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 2000GB/m bandwidth

Nothing special, I am looking for a best price and decent support 24/7

I have been with one provider for the last 5 years, but their services are degrading dramatically as they started outsourcing to 3rd countries (which eventually will destroy all businesses, i am sure)

Please, advise

I am currently using ThePlanet.  

They have the specs you are looking for.  The current downside, is that they recently built a new datacenter in Houston.  The IP range they are assigning is in the 173-174 range, this IP range was released in Feb, and issues to Theplanet in June.   I've had two instances where bogon filters had not been updated resulting in inability for a remote network to reach the web site.

BTW:  which provider are you using?

thank you. BTW, I do not understand why the title of my question is cut off...

I am currently with aplus, but they are not as good as they used to be. i am also considering iweb.com and fastservers.net

have you ever heard of them?

iweb looks solid, but they have a bad network (at least what i can see with pingplotter

I haven't heard of either.    It wasn't until this job that I started looking at off site data centers, it wasn't part of my focus at my past life.  

Personally, I always looked at the local NOCs where I could dump one of my own machines and just have it out there.  But never could monetize it enough to justify.
