I had to search for a dedicated hosting solution, after my websites got too popular. i had to switch from hostgatorīs shared hosting plan, after i got banned due to ram-overusage.
So i first moved to a VPS, i was surprised by a good offer that i found at http://infinitie.net
($35/m for 1,5gb ram, 20gb space, 100gb traffic). but it was too good to be true, the server had a lot of problems and my sites were slow, althought they did not completely used the available ram.
After a few months, i decided to leave them and sign up with a dedicated server provider. but it was very hard to find any affordable. most very too expensive or had not good server-specīs.
Finally i was thinking about going back to Hostgator and take their dedicated hosting plan. but $219.00 for a dual-core cpu with only one gb ram seemed to be very expensive, so searched on.
At a hosting forum, i got to know about a server/co-location company called http://www.joesdatacenter.com
. it was run and owned by the forum-member joe itself. when i saw, some threads and reviews about them, ithought, that this might be a very promissing offer. i contacted joe, we talked a little bit and he made me a custom offer. first i was scared about scam, but then i read all the other positive reviews about joe and decied to give it a try.
i signed up for a "amd phenom 9650 quad core", 4gb ram, 500gb hd, 1,500gb transer and five included ipīs.
the control panel is from directadmin. first i was a little bit shocked, as i was used to cpanel, but it is almost the same. i was a little confused about the admin/reseller/user function, but then found it out. the good thing is, that it does not use that much server resouces.
so thatīs my review. so far i am hosting with them for three weeks, and i am very happy. no downtimes (as i noticed), the speed is okay (got 350kb down-speed when downloading a file, my maximum is 400kb). will stay with them, when they stay that good.
