    OK So it looks like After 11 years I may have to switch hosting, because my server is so old they would have to move me to a different server BUT they want to again raise my price for the same specs. Here are the specs I currently have and what you think a fair price is? (This is a VPS Server)
    • CPU (Cores)2
    • RAM 4GB
    • Disk Drives 80GB
    • Included Bandwidth 1000GB
    • IP Addresses 2
    • CPanel
    • Softlicious
    They want me to pay $70/month, or about $356/6 mo. with 15% discount.
    Another hosting I was looking at same specs (except 4 cores) and is $239/6 months

    Is 1st hosting overcharging for what I get?

    That seems to be fair, considering that the cpanel license alone is 14.95 per month. Dont go with a cheap service, (you pay for what you get)

    it is little bit over charging, I suggest you should take a look in BHW marketplace for better offers, there are many trusted hosting providers in marketplace

    With a good company on the low end you are looking at about 53 bucks a month Then you can get to some companies that will charge around 119 for the same specs.
