looking for advice about what kind of server to get
I am looking to start up a streaming radio hosting business with my friend, so was looking for a host for this.
I had thought about a dedicated server, but with (obviously) no money coming in up front that may be a little tough on the budget, and especially with the extra hd I'd probably want to purchase.
I had also thought about a vps, the upside here being that most providers will merge a new ordered vps with your old one, effectively adding space without having to migrate to a new server and rebuild everything, etc.
So my questions are:
1. Should I go with a vps, or a dedicated server, and why?
2. If I go with a vps, do you think the backupsy deal posted on leb would be a good fit, as it has a lot of disk space (good), a lot of transfer (good), and the ram is not the biggest issue. I would probably just go with this but the only thing I'm worried about is the CPU, although the extra V CPU cores is not very expensive anyway.
Note that I would prefer to have 500 gb or so for the hd to start with and the possibility of getting more hd as I go along, and more transfer. 1tb transfer would probably be the minimum I would want to start with as well.
Also if anyone thinks I should go with a vps and knows of a better deal than the backupsy with the regular usage addon let me know.
