    Are you kidding me? Thats a steal especially at 8gb and 32ips on the block. I dont know what you intend to do with 32ips but 2gb of bw may not be enough.

    You're fast. That's the reason I'm in love with BHW. Thank you very much for your word of support.

    Anyone else?

    Please guys, help me on this, I really need to know what to do...I need your professional advice.

    www.volumedrive.com can probably give you something similar with mode bw, if you have a look. Maybe they can sort you out.

    Specs are good but BW sucks

    I just noticed something in his first post. He wrote.

    2000 GB Bandwidth

    Did you mean

    2000 MB?
    or
    2000 GB?

    its good, the only thing not good with it is the limited BW. 2000 GB only? I would find someting with unlimited bw. I get mine from this:

    That's a fairly decent price for the box you describe. What does the Silver Server Management include.

    Will the host set up the box and harden it for you or are you on your own?

    about silver management support : "in short on the linux based servers, we setup firewall, do off-site backups weekly, and provide tech support for things like configuring your web server, mail server, and such." - that's what they said via Live chat.

    Don't go for ovh - Their Support sucks and they support only from UK!
    Go with limestonenetworks.com - The same server but they have now some special deal that you can get this same config for about $135!
    I have server with them and it Fcking Rocks!

    Well for your server danut that's a good price. I can't use it right now but I will probably need it some time soon. Send me a pm from where you got it if you don't wanna post it here

    While $220 is an EXCELLENT price for 8 gig ram + 32 IPs, I would be wary of how "bp" the box is. I would start off slow in your blackhat project and then pump it up once you see that box is stable.

    It's strangely cheap... I guess that support sucks :)
    I am paying $205 for Core2Duo 1.86 + 2GB ram (10TB bandwidth), but with full management.
    Expensive, but I get full support in few minuts of request. Sometimes it's better to pay more for better thing :)

    Their support seems to be good. They have Live chat 5 days per week, they also have ticket support (maximum 4 hours to get a reply from them), phone and email.

    And the server it's also fully managed, just like yours.
