    Hey sigma I think buying a server is not a costly thing for now you can take at on rent and then buy it. Best Server Renting Price - $387/Month from HostGator that is best and handles all loads.

    Thanks

    Why do u want buy server from HostGator

    why not buying directly from ThePlanet

    HostGator just resell the server form ThePlanet to there customers

    u can get unlimited bandwidth server form $110 onward from ThePlanet


    sigma i think u need have your own data center

    if u want u can even convert your desktop computer into server

    for a hosting company you need to have a data center

    and to step up data center u need have lot of cash


    i think it is much better to buy a server on rental from top data center
    like Theplanet , rackspace , peer1 etc

    and start a web host company

    and server cost $69 p/m onwards 300 gb hdd and 3200 gb bandwidth


    many top webhosting company today don't have there own data center but they buy from other like Theplanet , rackspace , peer1 etc
    for example HostGator etc

    Hi,
    It is because they provide good support, they take price of there support not of servers mainly.

    Sigma, do you already own a hosting business? Or are you considering starting a new one?

    Hi, As i think it won't have problems in the server always and there will be small small things always, so in small things you won't get a fast help from DC's but from HostGator and such sites gives super fast support and it is very good especially for newbies.

    sahil but theplanet is much better in customer support than hostgator

    in that sense rackspace should be the option for the newbie
    as they offer 100% uptime

    and they the best dedicated server provider

    and how can they provided super fast support when the server it self is not in ther controle

    u complaint them about the problem
    they complaint DC for the problem and they solve the problem

    if u have direct contact with DC your problem will be solved much soon

    Buying a server is not an easy task. You need a big amount of money. If you are not going to start a well-planned hosting business then buying a server is of no use. I have bought reseller hosting pakages from a number of hosting company. They do not cost me a lot.

    Actually not as costly as you think. My friends are doing hosting business and i'm one of the share holder but this company is in-charge by him since he know better in IT. And myself is more focus on the SEO


    So far we have only two server and i might consider to buy another one.

    Have a look at Host4Profit they have good service. Many webmasters use their services. Quick to load and have variety of hosting packages according to your budget. They also pay you if you refer others. It is worth while trying them.

    Cheers

    $1 = Rs 50

    http://www.dell.com/us/en/business/servers/rack_enclosures/ct.aspx?refid=rack_enclosures&s=bsd&cs=04

    and majority of the web hosting company don't use high end server

    high end server are used in big company

    and majority of web hosting company use $1000 to $2000

    server are cheap

    data center means where there are many servers

    for good web hosting company you need have your own data center

    or host it in some good data center like theplanet , rackspace , peer 1etc

    if u have date center you need own a internet line or leased line

    starting a web hosting company in your own place is not easy

    you need have lot of cash

    that is a reason hostgator
    use theplanet data center

    if they want they can also have there own datacenter

    but they use theplanet data center because

    have server in your place involves lot of work

    need to have 24*7 internet and electricity connecting

    if there is some hardware failure in very short time you need to replace it
    and so on

    Thanks for fine info realitybites, I little bit more on it.

    Data Centers requires a large or a vast area, the total cost of Data Centers would be probable Rs.75,00,000 = USD 150000

    Hah -- bump time.

    I work for an IT rental company -- we're international and we stock over $40 million in inventory, including some pretty fancy servers. Just letting you guys know :)

    www.vernoncomputersource.com
    www.hamiltonrentals.com

    To be clear, we rent the servers, not the hosted environments -- but we can install VMWare on our server rentals.

    Hope this helps some of you. Somewhere.
