dedicated Web server hosted by someone or self hosted
Posted on 2012-03-22
Im on a time frame here and i need to decided whether to get an web server myself and hosted in my office or have someone hosted for me and have them worry about the hardware and firewall and stuff.
I need this server to host multiple web sites and have no downtime if hardware fails i need to be replace right away to keep services up and running.
Lets said if my budget is about $7000 to start up what would be the best route to go? is it worth it to have to deal with a server that a year later my become obsolete and have to buy a newer one or have the hosted company worry about that?
If your suggestions are going hosted somewhere else what are good recommendation price wise? i know goddady offers a CPU:Intel® Core™ i5 - 4 cores Storage: 2 x 300 GB
Bandwidth:10 TB with firewall for about $234.97 per month
Is there a better price out there?
