VPS or Dedicated Sever Deal
I am looking to get a server for Video Streaming I am not sure what specs I need at the moment, But the Streaming will be low at first, but will become more as time goes on.
I do not want to Spend more than $10-20 a month on a Server and would prefer a Dedicated server. I think 16 GB Ram would be enough I could probably get away with less ram but need storage space.
Look at Dacentec's offerings. $20-$25 will get you a good server.
Dual E5420, 500GB Disk, 8GB RAM, 5TB Transfer $20/month [Coupon 2Z9KX4KD8G]
Upgrade to 16GB for $5/month
Location does not matter only price, and network reliability.
For streaming purpose i would rather go for a dedicated.
You'll be sure ressources are not shared and you will probably get more space.
Then don't forget to include a backup solution in your thoughts.
Go with online dedibox XC if you want long term
I agree, a dedicated server would be best for you, because you're not sharing with anyone.
We have an affordable and reliable Dedicated for only $50/m with the following specs: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400, 250 GB Hard Drive, 4 GB Upgradable Memory, 4 Dedicated IPV4
Ip's /30 Subnet, Unmetered Redundant Bandwidth 1Gbps Port, Linux/Windows OS, Plesk, Cpanel/WHM Control Panels, Expedited Free Setup.
@Maestro, for streaming purposes I suggest you to go with Dedicated. If you are into youtube streaming (google's product) then you should find a place (location of your server) near their location from yours to avoid service disruption (lagging, etc.).
We've experienced the same while conduction a streaming in the past, but now thanks to youtube that allow a live streaming feature (beta).
That is nowhere within his "$10-20" budget. Read the thread before posting. Plus, the posted server only has 4GB of RAM in comparison to the OP's intial request of 16GB of RAM ._.
