    I was just wondering...If I wanted to have my site on my own privated dedicated server with its own nameservers, etc, how would I do this and how much would it cost?

    Is it a wise thing to do?

    You are probably looking at around 150 - 300 a month. So this would probably only be a good idea if you are very rich or if your site is pullin' in the dough.

    And if you're gonna spend that kinda dough, you'd probably be better off going with colocation... you could get a half rack for the same price.

    And what would that mean?

    That means instead of leasing the server (which is what most dedicated servers are), you can buy your own server and have it shipped to the datacenter. That way you can get your dreamserver, but all the responsibility of mantaining is yours.

    What is it you want? Your own server, or just custom nameservers?

    If the latter, you could buy a reseller account and simply set your own nameservers... the company that I use is $15/month for 1GB of diskspace and 20GB of bandwidth/month (oh, and unlimited domains).

    I knew someone who used to rent an RAQ 4 128 from Dedicated-Servers.co.uk for about 80 a month. They're not bad.

    Unless you are med/large sized host with techs available to work around the clock at the datacenter [DC] I would caution you against going the colo route. Reason being when not if but when your hardware fails you are responsible for replacing/repairing it.

    If you are nowhere near the DC and/or lack the expertise to accomplish this in less than an hour you are going to do a professional, mission critical site, or site desiring excellent uptime a dis service. Additonally colos generally get offered smaller bandwidth plans and charged higher bandwidth rates then those leasing a dedicated server. When you lease the server you get tech support and hardware replacement with your plan.
