    UK Dedicated Server request

    This isn't for me. It's for a client. Sectorlink won't work in this particular case because the client is based in the UK.

    Looking for a decent Windows dedicated server host in the UK that can offer at least a 250 GB hard drive, Windows Server 2008 or (preferably) 2012, SQL Server 2012 or 2014, has 24x7 support, and is generally reliable. I haven't been given a budget as of yet; as of right now, I'm just looking for "reliable" and "around".

    Thanks.

    I couldn't stand all the mentions of HostGator and BlueHost.

    Unfortunately, when it comes to UK-based dedicated hosting, I only have a huge list of companies NOT to go for.

    Rackspace are obviously excellent with 24x7x365 support, but they're SO EXPENSIVE.

    One I came across is https://www.coreix.net/ London based, reasonably priced w/24x7x365. Never used, so I have no idea. But the customer reviews are glowing.

    I'd stay way waaaaay away from the cheap oversold shared hosts that also-happen-to-sell-dedicated-servers. 90% uptime and terrible support is fine for a game server, but not for a business!

    Girl, you KNOW I'm goin' be picky when it comes to my servers. It's a little-known scientific fact that sexual potency is tied to one's server uptime and stability *. Gotta keep it at 100%, knowhatI'msayin'?

    Coreix looks interesting. I passed it on to my client. Much obliged! If they use it, I'll be able to review it myself.

    * - I may or may not have made this fact up.

    Yes...it's why HostGator users suffer from ED problems.
