Looking for Windows VPS near New York
Hello! I'm brand new here but VERY happy I stumbled across this wonderful site.
I host a Forex trade copier database service. Each client needs a Windows VPS but they can be pretty lightweight and inexpensive. The software we run is very small.
We're currently using servers with specs like this:
- 1 vCPU
- 1GB RAM
15GB hdd space (ssd preferred but not necessary)
Windows Server 2012 R2 preferred
Locations close to New York City preferred; east coast is required. New Jersey is perfect, Buffalo is great, North Carolina at the furthest. We use very little bandwidth but a fast ping to NYC is greatly desired.
We currently host about 75 VPS's across a couple vendors but we're looking for more sources to diversify our clients across several providers. We are growing at a rate of +/- 15 servers per month.
Finally, if we could find a vendor willing to create a custom OS template for us, we might use you for all our new VPS's. The hardest part about setting up new clients is installing all the freakin' Windows security updates (it can take 1-2 days of just installing updates before a VPS is usable); so this custom OS template would only need one thing: all current updates installed.
Budget is in the $7-$9 range, trying to stay under $10
