    Who better to ask than all of you. Looking to start a Hosting company with a friend of mine, more of as a hobby. I am in search of the cheapest dedi I can find with a decent connection and 500gb HDD minimum but truly a 1tb is much preferred. Managed is obviously preferred but most often more expensive so not needed. US datacenter if possible. We are right now looking into the kimsufi US datacenter.

    What is your budget and which specs do you need except hdd? I believe you should try Kvchosting plans. They are providing high performance low-cost solutions.

    Kimsufi is ran by OVH which is as far as I know, the cheapest dedicated hosting provider in general. The datacenter is also not in the states, it's in Canada. Lastly, the transit cables for that center are around 90% to europe. Check their traffic maps to find out the congestion.

    Also worth mentioning... You probably won't find one cheaper than them. They're also not managed dedicateds either. Managed dedicated usually costs $80+/month alone.

    I've been buying one of these each month

    Supermicro 2 X L5420 (8 cores 2.5 GHz) 16GB RAM, 4 Bay Hot Swap, 1TB, 1GB Connection, 10TB BW, Rental KVM with Reboot Console for $65 a month. Extra IPs a buck a pc with justification.

    Rent for 12 months and you own it. It's unmanaged so unless you know what you're doing I don't reccommend one for a new user but if you know your way around Linux and server management then very good deal.

    Located in USA and on 1GB test downloads I'm seeing about 45 seconds which isn't a bad connection.

    I just looked and they might be sold out but they'll have more soon I'm sure.

    Have you considered just getting a VPS to get started? That could be a cheaper way to start.
