[WTB] yearly US-based VPS [LA, AZ, TX]
budget: ~180$ (on a yearly commitment) -- to 250$ *max* (as past here I'd consider NFO) Virtualization: XEN / KVM RAM: 4+ GB vcores: 2+ (3-4 preferred: fair-share is OK, yet occasional bursts have to be allowed) IPv4: 2+ [3 preferred] -- will provide justification of course Disk Space: 200+GB RAID10 (eg, 150 won't suffice: can also be HDD's w/ a promise the node won't be slammed / oversold -- would need some details on node-density) BW Quota: >= 5TB (preferably DDoS protection of some kind on "one" IP) Port Speed: 1gbit+ burstable Location: LA, AZ, TX (ideally LA or AZ) -Ability to set rDNS & to do outbound SMTP on "one" of the IP's [meaning I need at least one "clean-IP"] ^ Stipulations like paying a fine **IF** the IP has to be cleaned up after use is OK. (won't be used for marketing)
I'm aware that what I'm asking is probably on the 'edge' for this type of a budget... However there are alot of "still-active" LET / LEB promotions that are very similar for a good chunk less. (just without multiple IP's or 50GB shy in storage space)
--Might be willing to negotiate up slightly in cost of course (won't go over 250$), also won't complain if what I'm asking is exceeded (more is always better, heh). I'm looking for a provider to be in with for the long-term.
That said: look forward to seeing what you guys can offer! Cheers!
Suppose stating my usage would help give an idea what I'm looking for. (whoops)
- A website, forums, email (eg, iredmail), "private" code-repo & ownCloud, payment portal, and a software registration system.
Something like NFO-Servers (not on LET) would be perfect if not for that they're sold as "bundled units" where resources cannot be separated.
[wind up with excessive disk space, bandwidth, etc, at significantly over-budget]
