hi folks, just want to know your opinion. im getting new dedicated server for my business and I just want to know if I am getting a good price for this server or am i just getting ripped off.
this is the first time that i am going to rent a server and just want to know if i am going to make the right choice.
Intel quad Q6600
2x 250GB Sata2 HDD

They want $150/month for that.
Is this a good price or not?

From my personal experience (take that with a couple grains of salt - ) I'd say that's a good deal IF it is TRULY a managed server. If they handle any problems with the hardware / their software 24/7, and are available to answer questions when needed, then I believe you've found a good deal. I pay almost that much for an un-managed Windows server, but it has been rock-solid for years, so no complaints. For that level of hardware and the 3TB of bandwidth, I'd say go for it - but... Keep in mind this assumes you've done your research on the company - if other folks are telling horror stories about them then keep searching! Anybody can toss up a box and make promises, but it takes good, dedicated and knowledgeable people to provide a good managed service.
