Will someone recommend me a decent hosting company to rent a dedicated server? My long-time hoster, HostGator became literally unbearable. Poor server performance + absolutely unhelpful support staff made their job: I need to switch.
My requirements are very simple:
- managed linux server with fast and helpful support
- plenty of bandwidth
- stable and decent speed for North America and Western Europe is crucial
- budget in not limited.
If it wasn’t for the “managed” restriction, i’d suggest ovh. I have managed more than 10 servers with them and never had bandwidth (100Mbit) or support related issue.Uptime of my older server with them
16:52:14 up 1662 days, 1:58, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
Current TF preview/forum/git server
16:52:27 up 270 days, 8:33, 1 user, load average: 0.04, 0.06, 0.05
yep but they also have offices in many countries offering native language support (france, italy, germany, spain and so on). If i’d have to get one now, i’d use ovh.us to pay in usd rather than eur.
I just (2 weeks ago) took on a new server at hostdime.com – it’s dedicated, managed and fast and they moved all my sites / databases and setup the server in less than 24 hours and I am more than pleased with the speed of the server – it has a backup drive also and completes automated backups daily with a report sent to my email every night with my logs etc.
I couldn’t be happier at this point and recommend you take a look.
We use Peer1.com and ServerBeach.com and we have great uptime never had any issues, and great support!
