Hosting Review Requested

December 8, 2005 at 2:59 am | Posted in Startup | 17 Comments

A buddy of mine just IM’d me about cheap hosting in the US.  His requirements are:

  • non shared hosting i.e. dedicated server
  • a linux distro which doesn’t have package management issues i.e. gentoo / debian / *bsd
  • a non astronomical monthly fee ( he needs at least 2 servers from day 1 to build a clustered architecture)
  • ssh access w/ some kind of decent web based admin tool like webmin
  • ability to do some kind of disc mirroring / heartbeat with drbd or something similar.  This is a high reliability application but he can’t afford to buy his own hardware*

I’ve heard good things about ServerBeach but I don’t know.  Anyone have any thoughts?  Niall?  Where’s your box?  Kevin what do you use ? (and yes I could traceroute but I think its a good conversation to start)

*I know that’s inconsistent on the face of it.  Don’t bug me about it.  Bug him (oh crap; he requested anon)

  1. I use TextDrive but it’s a shared host. They have dedicated hosting starting at $1000 a month.

  2. I use XLHost and am very happy. I’ve got a 2.4 Ghz with 2G ram and a 160G hd for under 110$. They even let me boot in a gentoo cd and install my own system for no extra cost. It worked out very well.

  3. Niall — I moved (where this blog will likely go soon) to last night so glad to know we’re in agreement; as we so often are.

    Nick — I’ll look into them. Thanks man.

  4. Really late to the game, but check out RimuHosting at I’ve been hosting with them for almost 2 years, and these guys are unbelievable.

    Virtual Private Server with full root access over ssh, webmin, etc. starting at $19.95/month.

  5. Check out they have pretty reasonable prices and good technical support.

  6. I think you meant e.g, gentoo / debian / *bsd

    and not

    i.e. gentoo / debian / *bsd
