Managed dedicated hosting

HI, I know this is a widely discussed topic. But the more i read, the more confused i got. My site is not very big, ca 20G monthly transfer, but the problem is the CPU usage which lets Bluehost throttle my site for 40% of the time. The web page loads so slow that i am sure i lost a lot of visitors.

My budget is ca $100-150 a month and the key is good support since i don’t have much experience on server.

What is the best managed dedicated server under $150?

Thanks a lot for your help

You told us about your budget. Now can you please let us know about your server requirements?
There are a lot of dedicated server providers which will be able to offer you server under $100.

Chances are that you don’t need a dedicated server, nor to spend $100 a month. You need a better host, one that doesn’t throttle usage as soon as a slight peak in traffic occurs.

It doesn’t even mean it has to be a more expensive host than the one you’re using now, but a $20 budget should generally buy you very good shared hosting.

I just want a managed dedicate server with good support and up time. Current I pay $20 a month and still get a lot of throttle for only 20G a month data transfer and the web load speed average 6-7 seconds. I would rather to pay more to get a good server so that i will not lost visitors.

I want ask people here which are the best managed server company?

Thanks,

There is not “best”, and with $100-$150, it’s unlikely you’d afford the best.

Some companies that have a history of providing good managed services and come to mind right now would be Liquidweb, Servint and Rackspace.

Current I pay $20 a month

I was under the impression that Bluehost has cheaper hosting.

I believe having dedicated sevrer will be more then enough for you.

Bluehost does have cheaper hosting, but will throttle more. They request me to upgrade to $20 per month, i did not see any improvements. I called to complain, they just keep throw the ball back and insisted on my site is slow. My site can not be sometime slow, sometimes very fast. Frustrating. I rather to spend more on a dedicate server rather than being throttled all the time.

You do not need dedicated server mate. You’d better spend $20 for VPS instead.

Thanks all for reply. I have cleaned all the unused plug-ins. Deleted all the unused themes. Used W3 total cache. Compressed CSS, JS etc and the web loads faster and the throttling was down quite a bit.

If you are looking forward to a fully managed dedicated server with a decent configuration in the US, you can check BODhost.com as it offers good deals on dedicated servers which are fully managed :slight_smile:
