UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT (11:59:59 18/06/10)

Huge reductions on Dedicated servers due to their new launch.

99.99% uptime all included of course, and discounts up to 40% on domains.

Price you get now lasts you the life of the server. (If you buy now, it will be £44.99 a month until you cancel)

Tis' a good week to be a Techie.

No Cpanel at this price.

Disappointed theres no Win OS offered.

Not a bad price, but nothing to write home about IMHO.

Good price for the spec and if you know what you're doing on webmin it's a bargain.

Windows incurs licensing fees, you won't find many providers offering windows for the same price as linux unless you supply your own key.

Good prices if you *NEED* a box in the UK, but for the money you'd get a better spec of box at OVH. They have good peering with most UK ISPs and there's not much of a bump in ping.

And it's only 45 quid if you pay a year up front.

Yep appreciate this - just disappointed that they dont give the option at an increased cost.

Yeah, it does seem odd to not offer it at all. People are willing to pay extra for it, there's money to be made there.

Perhaps they don't employ Microsoft certified support staff.

One thing I noticed though..

"Two diverse fibre links (provided by BT) enter at opposite ends of the … "Two diverse fibre links (provided by BT) enter at opposite ends of the data centre to maximise resilience. An auto fail-over configuration provides even greater reliability.



Two links? That doesn't allow for much going wrong. They don't seem to say much about how fat those pipes are either. I can't seem to find much info at all. No mention of peering etc.

Also a bit disappointing that there is a lack of multi homing, with both fibre tails being provided by the same SP...!

Probably both go to the same Provider Edge router!

Hehe quite possible. Just different routes in case someone digging up a road messes up.

I noticed in their T&C:

For their unlimited webhosting.

I can find no similar clause for their dedicated servers, but if unlimited in webhosting can be 25GB/month - a pitiful amount, especially for 7 quid a month - I dread to think how they'd react if you used just 500GB or 1TB a month with a dedi, an amount most other similarly priced providers wouldn't blink at.

The more I read, the less this seems like a good deal. A person would be better off going for a comparably priced VPS in my opinion.

Cpanel can be licenced externally if required not checked if these people offer it, but if not that's always an option.

It's fairly straightforward to install cpanel on a clean box as well.
