Cheapest Colocation

lentrolentro Member
edited March 18 in General

My business contract with my ISP will eventually end, as I am currently basement hosting ;), so I'm looking to see if prices are cheaper colocating.

What's the cheapest colocation that you know of? (From an okay provider?)

Size: Searching for both 1U and 2U
Power: ~220 watts (1 amp @ 220 volts or 2 amps @ 110 volts)
IP Addresses: Preferably 5+ IPv4s and a lot of IPv6 addresses (Like /64 or /48 will be more than enough)
Network Speed: Preferably 1gbps+
Bandwidth: Preferably 50TB+ or maybe unmetered
Location: North America and/or Europe

Cheapest prices I have found are around $100.

Feel free to post links and/or PM me.

Thanks for all your help!

    You're expecting 100TB on Gigabit for $100/mo?

    Checkout NForce or Databarn for NL. Clouvider for UK.

    But you’re never going to get that much bandwidth for that price no matter who you go with.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Is that still around? They are using 2017 copyright, so they obviously haven't updated their site, and their English site version isn't English.

  • Isn't there a US provider that does 150TB at gigabit speeds pretty much as their core business?

    This isn't colocation, but check if this fits. https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/163314/usa-dedicated-servers-150tb-bw-ddos-protection-10-gbps-19-gpu-available-instant-setup/p1

    I believe they only have dedicated servers, but I sent them a message anyways. Thanks!

    Is your server hardware specialized? You could leave your home setup and just rent hardware in the DC.

    Yes, unfortunately in this case. Thank you for your help, though

    Thank you for this suggestion. It seems very reasonable at 59 euros for a 2U server, and fair use @ 1gbps should suit my needs. I am double checking with them, though.

    Who are your IP transit and peering providers? (Or what data center do you operate out of so I can check theirs directly?)

    Found their ASN listed nice and easy to find under the locations page on their site.

    You can get a upgraded fair use @ 10gbps bandwidth at no extra cost as well if your server supports that..

  • AquaNX is cheap and have been very reliable.

    $39/month (no contracts)
    1U

    I've used them for a few years without issues and then came back again when I got back into hosting. Currently I have two 1U servers running with them; both are non production/mission critical. Both my servers are in San Jose.

    I would recommend alphavps for Europe. Although I think they are closed because of the Corona virus at the moment.

    Could you please elaborate? They have the best prices at the moment (Around $60 for everything included), so I am considering colocating with them.

    If you are in the UK and dont care about 19" you can try colocker.co.uk

    I saw it listed on LEB, which immediately gave me some doubts ;)

    Anyways, it seems their price is only for the first month. Then, it hikes up.

    With 2 amps, we are looking at $200, which is a bit out of my budget. Thank you for the link, though!

    Just curious: What was your specific bad experience with AquaNX, though? You said “DNDW,” earlier but please elaborate

    I'm an interested enthusiast. Teach me.

    Hello, once again, I cannot confirm this as I do not use their service. However, I had used the code "2020," and from their WHMCS panel, it says that the code is valid for a 50% recurring discount. I'd recommend reaching out to their support and verifying this, however, I think it might be worth the time.

    Servers... in a basement. You’re looking at two old Poweredges that I used to learning/development and a Proliant used for virtualization used for production. Attached to a gigabit switch and onto my ISP (network stuff not in image). I’ve got a UPS too (not in image)

    I’ve used them as well but that was over 10 years ago. They were stable and reliable. Pricing is great. I picked aquanx personally because it’s local to be in the SF Bay Area versus oplink is in Texas.
