    If anyone is in the market for a decent priced dedicated server here ya' go. I've got two with them now and the support (what little I've needed) has been great.

    They have gotten some more Xeon dual L5520's in and they are still priced at $55 each per month. I'm about to grab a third one.
    No setup fees

    24GB DDR3 ECC
    1TB SATA drive
    100Mbps unmetered
    1 IP address
    Location: Jacksonville, FL.

    It's an unmanaged server. But the specs they're offering seem to blow up the competition.

    Yep....it's totally unmanaged. The ONLY way to fly. :LOL:
    It's not THAT hard to learn how to set one up. :whistle:

    I'm willing to be educated. :D I'm not too savy with all the server (nackend) stuff I'm basically spoon fed by my wonderful hosting guy with that regard. :LOL:

    Heck, the hardest part is hardening the server - once you get iptables down and if using Debian installing Fail2Ban, you are on the home stretch. I got the third one just to have - haven't really figured out a use for it yet - may put my wife and my blog on there. Kinda overkill since neither one of us use it - just set them up to learn how. I'm contemplating setting it up as a mysql replicator (just to learn how).

    Oh, believe me, I don't have it all sorted. I'm still learning as I go.:confused:

    Are you a recent customer, or a long time customer with them ?

    How's their network? Hard to find good network peering in that price range.

    I guess you'd classify as recent. Got the first one in 05/13, about 2 weeks later got the second one and just got the third last night.

    So far, I don't have any complaints (you could also ask @Mike Edge as he's with them).

    Have at it.. I got my third one at the bargain basement price. Still trying to figure out what to do with it. :LOL:
    I only got the unmetered 100Mbps on this one... and according to Daniel it is true unmetered, unlike what you get at some other places. You have the full 100Mbps pipeline.

    It would be nice if they had the option for hardware RAID.

    They do... it''s extra a month - you have to request it on the additional info page. I'm still considering doing it to the one with the SSD's in it I have.

    I had put $40 in, but that was what my SSD's ran. I have a request into them right now to find out how much the hardware raid is. Since I only went with 2 drives I decided on software RAID.

    If they have ddos protection, that's more better :)

    That would be icing on the cake but true Hardware DDOS mitigation will be hard to find anywhere on a price at that level. Hardware costs alone have to be recouped.
