Dedicated Server host with full control.

Hi Folks,

I have been searching for a dedicated server host that offered additional IP addresses. I ended up going with and got myself a reasonably good deal on a server with iDrac. This was important to me as i wanted to put ESXI 6.5 on there, and they only had 5.5 as an available reinstall option.

After a lot of going back and fourth is turns out that the iDrac features are disabled for end users and despite support telling me I can install a custom OS, it seems that all the option to allow me to mount my image are greyed out.

This was the last response from support:

"I have checked and the virtual media was set as auto attached, this is the correct configuration to allow customers to mount and boot their own ISO via remote console. I'm afraid that we can't allow customers to change default IDRAC configuration"

There is no way for me to mount an iso.

So, I am looking to cancel with oneprovider and i'm looking for an new host. Someone who has the following:

  • ESXI 6.5 (or 6.0) as a reinstall option or the ability to load my own OS with relevant permissions
  • Minimum 8 cores
  • Minimum 16G Ram
  • Approx 2TB of storage
  • Addition IP addresses
  • Under £50 a month

There seems to be deals popping up all the time so I am hoping that you kind folks can point in the right direction.

Thanks in advance for your help.
