    Hi there,

    our website is continuing to grow and our current hosting is reaching its limits. We're thinking about a dedicated server. What is the best hoster you know?
    Who does provide unlimited bandwith?

    Cheers,
    Valentin

    Do you need a full managed or unmanaged server?

    I use datashack.net (I'm not affiliated with them) for both of my dedi's and never had a problem.

    Check out webhostingtalk.com there are always promotions from hosts on there.

    Cheers!

    We need a full managed server. We're looking forward to use memcache and (maybe) lucene...

    Just sent you a PM with the contact details for my current managed host, dedicated now. I've never had any request that wasn't taken care of in a timely manner. I also use BurstNet (for cheap dedicated servers that I can manage myself), and I've used WiredTree too, they're AS good as dedicated now, but about twice+ the price, so I couldn't financially justify being with them.

    You can try OVH Servers. They are super cheap and install a 30 Domain Plesk Licence for you free

    I am running about 200 autoblogs on a fairly high end server which i got from SoftLayer -- Been with them for about 2 years. They have email, Live and ticket support. The server price depends on what you get ofcourse and then try to bargain.

    Unfortunately Soft-layer don't offer server management ( apart from ensuring it is up and running), so i went and outsource the server management from a company called " Server Buddies" which cost me $60 a month. So all in all i am paying just under $500 a month.

    It would be worthwhile to check them out.

    If you are moving from a shared server you may not need to move all the way to a dedicated one. I would look at knownhost, been with them awhile and the service is good. You can start with a vps that fits your needs and move up through the different plans as you need to without any effort on your part other than choosing the new plan and starting a ticket.

    Doing it that way will save you some cash as opposed to getting a full blown dedi before you really need one.

    Like volund sayd you want to check how site is working on a vps for start. I recommend intovps as they have best prices; if you want dedicated tho you can check the offers from wiredtree or softlayer.

    If you want a managed dedicated server, then go with handsonwebhosting or if you want 'brand name' then go with rackspace (choose a linux server! Their techs dont know apache/php on windows)

    I would love to help you out, or if I am unable to help you out at the very least I can give you some free advice/consultation as what to look for when chosing a quality provider. I happen to beleive that our service is the best out there, but at the end of the day you are going to need to decide what is going to work best for you and your business. I can recommend what kind of specs you should be looking for based on your current usage/traffic, and then from there you can take the tools that I give you in order to help you make the best most informed decision for you and your business

    I got a Dedicated Server yesterday. Xeon Core i7, 8 Core processor, 24Gb RAM for just $199 ! They got Core i5 for just $149.. I did talk to the CEO of the company and he seem to be really friendly. Guess what, they might provide bulletproof hosting as well. Not sure though.

    I use a hostgator dedicated server. I guess they are a good choice if you are a tool like me when it comes to configuring server stuff. They offer 24/7 support which is very important for me.
