  1. Hey there, i'm looking to purchase a dedicated server for my network, but I cannot seem to find a cheap host.

    1. What type of hosting are you looking for? - Dedicated Server
    2. What is your monthly budget? - $80
    3. Do you mind setup fees? - Please no setup fees.
    4. How much memory will you need for the entire server itself? - 32GB Ram
    5. What type of CPU would you prefer? Intel Xeon E3-1240v3
    6. How much storage space will you need? - Anything like 1TB HDD to 2 x 120GB SSD is fine.
      • What type of storage would you prefer? SSD or HDD, both are OK with me.
    7. Would you like DDoS protection? YES, this is required.
    Please no OVH, SYS, or KS, thanks.

  2. Use SoYouStart. its apart of OVH.
     
  3. Any others besides SYS, KM, OVH?
     
  4. Techknowitall, to tell you the truth i dont think you will find a 32gb ram dedicated for under $100 really.. they are quite expensive. Depending on the size of the server your going for you might need to start with a weaker server and earn on donations before you can go further.
     
  5. not that I know of.
     
  6. $99..

    You won't find a good host for $80 that has good DDoS protection and good support.

  8. Kimsufi does not offer Windows servers, just a little heads up.
     
  9. I use BBGNetworks, they're awesome.

    I have a sys node you can rent from me for $50 a month. (Cheaper than their website.)
    $80 will not get you a good server apart from if you go with OVH.

  11. just wonder if you chose SYS what package for a 16gb and a 32gb would be good to host a server?
    also someone said before that its not allowed to host game serverson ovh is it the same for sys?

    Whoever told you this must have no clue how the internet works. OVH could care less what you host on your server (same for any company) as long as it's not illegal or abusive towards their network.
    The memory you need is your preference, if you're hosting a small server with under 100 players 16GB is fine.

    Thank you for the recommendation for our dedicated servers.

    Look at one generation older (Xeon E3 V2), you'll have 95% of the performance and will be able to get much closer to your budget. If you have any questions, I can always be reached at [email protected].
     
  15. Used SyS for a long time, best quality for value
