Lightbulb Another solution...

Attempting to find a "better" solution for our webhost situation has driven me to get creative.

The needs of my website require a dedicated unix box with at least 256 RAM. It can't be cobalt...(VBulletin doesn't like it particularly)

And since dedicated boxes with particulars that I need are so expensive, I've found another solution I haven't heard much about. Purchasing a server box and colocating it.

Catalog.com has some great deals. Buy the box and co-locate it for 149.00 per month for 100GB of bandwidth transfer. No matter the size of the box...it is 149.00 per month. It comes with 4 IPs and the ability to purchase more for 1.00 each.

I'm putting the money together (actually fundraising through the website letting my members know abuot our needs) and plan on getting our own box SOON. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

The coolest thing is that the box is located nearby so if I ever wanted to go and "look" at our box...I could. This is amazing to me since most of my boxes would require me to drive 5 days to go view them.

not trying to be too negative kathy, but have Catalog.com fixed there recent network problems ? my friend had 3 dedicated servers with them and were unhappy with the network performance and left.

Also have you asked about the hardware upgrade costs and turn around time if you need upgrades ?

I've been paying attention to catalog.com's network issues because I hope to eventually have a dedicated server there, and it seems like they're pretty well fixed. I haven't seen a complaint about the troubles on the message board lately ( http://bulletin.catalog.com ) anyway.
