Looking for good dedicated hosting company

by cypher321 / June 12, 2009 6:24 AM PDT

Hi, I'm starting up a business which will require me to procure a dedicated server and I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with any good dedicated hosting/co-location companies. Any advice is appreciated.

Finally found a good host
by floyd1156 / June 16, 2009 4:30 AM PDT

I've been through a few hosting companies over the years. Some were dirt cheap and provided absolutely no service and some cost a good amount and still didn't provide the amount of service I was looking for. Now I've been with MVIHosting for the past 2 years and I'm very happy. They always have a real person there to answer my questions and troubleshoot my issues. They even have an after hours support system which pages an on-call technician (which actually knows what's going on) and you get a response within 30 minutes. You can find more info on them here: <a href="http://www.mvihosting.com">http://www.mvihosting.com</a>

Dedicated Servers
by MickNY / June 22, 2009 3:08 AM PDT

First I would suggest posting up a bit more information. Do you need a Windows or Linux environment? Will you be using Database? What type of processing power will you need? How much traffic will you be requiring. Answering these questions first will allow you to start to filter which providers you want to use rather than 30 people posting who is the best provider or host. Each host is different and some work better than others for you. For example I personally use Server Intellect for my Windows Servers. They provide me a soild network and fast response times on tickets. They have a DNS fail-over set in place so my server can be connected to even if multiple routes are having network issues or are congested. I highly recommend them if you are in need of a Windows Server or ASP Hosting.

You need to find out what will work best for you, then start asking who is the best in the categories you need. Good luck!

We have used Server Intellect for some time now and have had quick response from technical support and good uptime. They are more expensive then others, but you get what you pay for. If you can afford Rackspace, then I would also look at them as well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
