Cheap Dedicated Server


New Member
I'm looking for a relatively cheap dedicated server. I'm looking for a atom server with about 4gb ram, not looking to spend too much.


Needs: about 4gb ram, 50gb hard drive minimum

I'm looking for below $20/month.

ReliableSite has some ARM servers that are 2GB and $20, but they won't run binary blobs compiled for x86.  It may be sufficient for your needs, however.  IIRC, they are oDroid-U2 based machines.

Setup was manual and took about 3 hours-ish yesterday morning. I asked a question after it was set up via support ticket and got a response from a native-english-speaking staff member in under an hour. 

I'm currently setting it up to be used as a private torrent tracker aggregate seeder.

Someone on IRC (rm I think?) mentioned that OVH has better disk I/O, but I don't intend to do even 30 mbyte/sec continuous writes, and I didn't have to deal with OVH's shitty support. Works for me.
