I can sell you airconditiong and a new cd player with your new car for $2

lol.

Price is built in to the server, Rackshack are one of the best marketing machines I have seen on the net, good luck to them they are astute business people.

but $25 setup fee for ips , sheesh.

We host our own servers, so we are paying quite a bit more for CPanel. We purchase by the year, though.

Dedicatednow.com is the way to go!

I was with rackshack when I partnered with another hosting company, and we had tons of problems, even having to replace a 6 month old hard drive with them, which we had to pay for.

Dedicatednow.com is much better and talk about fast and courteous service. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Much rather go with a reliable company then some fly-by-night setup. Have you seen dedicated nows demo? It fails and judging by their forum posts there are not many happy users there. 2+ days to setup a server even more?

Buy your own servers colo them at DC near you. That way you have full control over just about everything, and the only person you can blame is yourself.

I'd much rather depend on someone I train than some third rate tech.

Actually my experience with dedicatednow has been excellent,
You really shouldnt judge a business by what a few forum users post about them,
I pre-ordered a server at the start with them and so the setup time was a little irrelevant, both of my other servers with them were setup within an hour, support is great and ive hardly ever noticed any downtime,
Thanks :)

I agree totatally, that's one reason we have changed vendors. We are now with a very highend company and are doing a lease-2-own of our servers. No more of these mickey mouse $99 companies who's only cares are their pockets, and buying and putting in third rate network gear and servers etc...

If you are truely serious about performance and reliabilty the only way to go is with either co-lo in a reliable DC or if using rented gear go with a vendor with good cisco network gear and namebrand servers. Yes will cost a fair bit more but you'll never be happier in the long run. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

I co-locate and rent servers. Either way is just as good.
I think a lot of people are having one problem or another with cPanel. But maybe you should jump out there and try the others. I have used Pl**K and en**m....... and if it were a race I would have to say cPanel crossed the finish line MONTHS ago...... and everyone else still waiting on the competition to catch up!
Hands down cPanel is the Best!
Oh yeah.... cPanel is included, with much better support and rates, where I get my servers than anywhere I have ever seen and/or tried.

Would you be so kind to share the name of the company with us?

I would be more than happy too. But I just don't think it is right to post it here. If you will email me at [email protected] I will be most happy to provide you with the URL.

Just a tip for you:
The $25 they charge per request not per IP
so if you ask for say 10 ips at the same time you only pay the $25 once not 10 times

Yes I am aware of this.

scenario,

signup a new reseller who needs a dedicated ip or two, $25 ok so we request more so that we don't have to pay $25 next week or month when signing up another reseller, request rejected based on rules ip's have to be justified!

requesting ips based on maybe future sales not justification enough.

I also think they have a limit of how many ips you can have per server also.

50 isn't it?

I think the limit is 255 but you will never reach that because other servers on the same block, if there is no ips left they ask you if you want to be moved to another ip block, meaning all your IPs will change :(

When requesting IPs just check the boxes for what you want them for, dont tell them your requesting it for future sales

Actually at this time we are running servers with ips from four different blocks!

I imagine when you say different blocks you mean

123.456.209.00

and

123.456.210.00

does this cause any problems? we usually set the mask address different for certain blocks as advised by our DC.

As the months roll on we add new ips from different blocks each time we signup new resellers.

Yes thats what i mean

i know its possible to have ips from different subnets but i didnt think RS supports it.
Im remember this from a year ago when i asked for extra ips they told me there was no IPs left on my subnet and they asked if i wanted to be moved to a different one meaning all my existing ips would be changed :eek:

I dont do reselling or give dedicated ips so i rarely need to ask for an extra one
