CPanel Dedicated Server
Hosting Reviews > Dedicated Servers > CPanel
Setup Fee: $175
Their dedicated CPanel server offers are pretty straightforward with no hidden charges and suit well with budgets of start-up hosting resellers.
The Basic server starting at $149 per month gives you the control of a 1.6GHz Intel Pentium 4 machine, equipped with 256MB of RAM, 60GB Hard Disk, 100GB bandwidth and 12 IP addresses.
Talking about upgrades, you can save a lot when paying the one time set-up fee on some upgrades rather than the otherwise tempting monthly charge. For example an extra 128MB RAM can be added for a one-time $65 charge or you can opt for $15 monthly. If you are here to stay, then definitely $65 is a wise choice. Similar is the case for backup hard drive.
The networking infrastructure is well defined on the website, with easy to understand graphic charts. Alerta has been monitoring their uptime since 2003 and the uptime at the time of writing this review stands at 99.639%.
They are based in British Columbia, Canada.
Setup Fee: $0
They have some cool offers for those looking for cheap dedicated servers. 1.7GHz Celeron server only costs $99 per month. It includes 512MB of RAM, 80GB Hard Drive and a set of 8 useful IP addresses.
You have to pay an extra $34.95 for the CPanel. Is this monthly or a one-time fee? God knows - or maybe someone in their sales department, but definitely not the one responsible for presenting the information on their website.
They do not talk much about their network infrastructure - signs of being a server reseller only. The FAQ claims to have redundant OC48 & multiple DS3 connectivity from Tier-1 providers, but the following 'learn more' link took us to the homepage again ... ouch.
No telephone support either. Definitely a reseller.
Crazy Host Guy
Setup Fee: $99.95
The prices are not as crazy as the name suggests nor are the services either. But they do have a very friendly culture. Try playing the "Find Crazy's Brain" game featured on the homepage and you'll learn a lot about this team.
The starter dedicated server only costs $99.95/m and is a passable 1.7GHz Celeron machine. At 1GB, the figure for RAM is impressive, showing that they actually know what matters in a server.
Daily incremental backups and full weekly backups are part of the package. But you'll have to maintain the upkeep of server OS as well as apply software and security patches on your own.
They also offer dedicated server lease-to-own plans. Couple it with their affordable colocation services and you can save a lot in long-term.
Toll-free support is available. Just like Dayana Host, they are also from Canada, with office based in Ontario.
Online Data SOLutions
Setup Fee: $0
Looks like another reseller for dedicated servers. The 2.4GHz P4, equipped with 512MB RAM and 80GB Hard Disk, running Apache Web Server only costs $249.95.
You do not have to pay any extra fee for CPanel licensing. However for an extra $100 only, you can have a fully managed dedicated CPanel server. The support service also comes with a web based Emergency SMS facility.
They have got offices in Australia and UK in addition to the New York headquarters in US.
